Thermal imager fights the bird flu threat

Thermal imager fights the bird flu threat A tried-and-tested thermal imager from Land Instruments International for monitoring the temperature of the human body can help minimize the global public health risk posed by highly pathogenic avian influenza (bird flu). The company developed its Human Body Temperature Monitoring System (HBTMS) in response to the need to restrict the spread of the deadly SARS outbreak in 2003, and it was used successfully for mass screening in public places such as airports, ports and terminals. Such precautions are in line with the warning about bird flu issued by the World Health Organization, which has called for heightened monitoring and surveillance of cases and welcomed initiatives on epidemiologic investigation. Easy to set up and operate, HBTMS is non-invasive and can assist in monitoring and detecting a significant rise in the skin surface temperature (usually the face), which is typically associated with a person running a high fever.
