New Therma-i from SPSC (UK) Ltd for contactless compliance screening

New technology will help dentists enforce latest government COVID-19 guidelines. Therma-i, a contactless temperature screening solution that accurately screens temperature to a 0.3 degree in less than three seconds – and can even detect if a face mask is worn – has been introduced in the UK by Lincoln-based SPSC (UK) Ltd.

As new face mask regulations come into effect on July 24th, businesses across Lincoln and the UK are adapting to support the nation’s return to normal life. Therma-i has been designed to help business owners keep their establishments and patrons safe by alerting potential customers if they have a temperature or are not wearing a mask.

A desktop mounted, low-cost and contactless instant temperature measurement system, Therma-i uses thermal imaging technology to measure a person’s head for temperature. If found to be above 38 degrees Therma-i will produce an alarm. The whole process takes seconds to complete and requires no participation from a staff member.

It also works to ease potentially uncomfortable confrontations between shop employees and patrons by first detecting and then politely requesting that a non-compliant person wears a mask.

SPSC Managing Director Rob White says: “Before the lockdown our team were in the middle of research and development for the next generation of our products, looking to utilise thermal imaging technology for a new range of products. As we went into the lockdown, we looked for ways we could play our part to pave the road to a safe return.”

Mr White added: “It is remarkable how the development team have pulled together and what we have accomplished in a short time. Seeing the team collaborate through new mediums and find new ways to get the product to market – without once seeing each other in person – is astounding.

“SPSC has a long-standing reputation for developing and distributing innovative safety solutions and has taken its 20 years of experience within safety technology and adapted it to support the return of British businesses and public organisations.”
