Speed is important in a crisis like this, and the wide use of thermal imaging provides a fast response and delivers valuable screening technology.
A lesson learned from the SARS outbreak of the last decade is that early detection of elevated body temperature is a first step toward identifying people who may be ill. Seek Products provide an adjunctive diagnostic tool that can detect elevated body temperature at distance. Non-contact, non- invasive screening technology is essential to efficient screening and limited contact with potentially infected people.
Infrared screening has long been used to detect soft tissue injuries that can be measured by body temperature. This combined with the increased need for febrile screening after reckoning with both SARS and H1N1 influenza instigated several studies examining the efficacy of using thermal imaging for measuring body temperature. The article “Comparison of 3 Infrared Thermal Detection Systems and Self-Report for Mass Fever Screening,” published in 2010 demonstrates that thermal imaging can serve as a fast, non-invasive way to detect elevated body temperature.
COMPATIBILITY & SOFTWARE ISSUES & QUESTIONS
Click Here for the Seek Thermal Compact Series Compatibility List.
The Android and iOS Seek Thermal apps require a minimum of Android 4.3 and iOS 8.0, respectively. The apps will not download if your smartphone does not satisfy the minimum requirement.
MOUNTING & ACCESSORY ISSUES & QUESTIONS
Customers will be delighted to know that they can now convert any Seek Thermal Compact imager into a low cost thermal weapon site. This can be done by purchasing a Seek Bracket Kit w/Cables in addition to a Seek Thermal Compact series thermal imager.

Some thicker smartphone cases (especially ruggedized ones) do not provide enough clearance around the connection port. To use the imager you must either remove the case, or attach the imager using an extender/adapter.
THERMAL IMAGING ISSUES & QUESTIONS
A microbolometer is a type of thermal sensor that detects IR wavelengths and allows thermal imaging devices to essentially 'see' heat signatures.
OTHER ISSUES & QUESTIONS
Seek Thermal products with the FastFrame designation are able to display images at an increased rate. While most Seek Thermal imagers have a frame rate of less than 9Hz, FastFrame imagers exceed 15Hz. The result is a much smoother motion in images.
Frame Rate, or Frames Per Second (FPS), refers to the number of frames that make up each second of a video image. The more frames per second the smoother the motion in an image will appear.
When capturing a static image with a stationary camera a slower FPS isn't that noticeable. When the subject or camera are moving, a slower FPS will result in a choppier image. As the FPS increases, that choppiness lessens and the image will appear much smoother.
Gorilla Glass is a brand of specialised toughened glass developed and manufactured by Corning, now in its fifth generation, designed to be thin, light and damage-resistant. Many Seek Thermal products utilise Gorillas Glass technology into their unit displays to increase the durability of the product.
