Reopen Safely: Theroscan’s Commitment to Health
According to the CDC, individuals with a fever of at least 100.4°F [38°C] should not be permitted entrance into the workplace as this may indicate that they have a communicable disease, such as COVID-19.

Health and wellbeing should be at the top of your priority list when it comes time to reopen. This is especially important if you work in a crowded environment, such as one of the following:
- Schools and universities
- Large office buildings
Our self-help, non-contact infrared wrist thermometer was designed specifically for these types of situations. It allows places of business to quickly and efficiently screen people for high temperatures.
In times like these, there’s never enough margin for safety. Traditional forehead thermometer guns may take temperatures, but they introduce a host of other issues along the way, including:
- The necessity of having an operator present at all times
- Specialized training that may result in operator error
- Potential exposure to both the operator and employees
- Non-instantaneous results, causing backups at workplace entrances
At Theroscan, safety is our number one priority. When it comes to taking temperatures, we’ve used the latest scientific data to create the most foolproof solution to keep your place of employment safe.
Wrist vs. Forehead Thermometers
In a study conducted earlier this year, researchers discovered that temperatures taken at the wrist were more stable than those taken at the forehead. This has large-scale implications for businesses that require all visitors and employees to be screened at the entranceway.

Not all thermometers are the same. Our Model TS-1 wrist thermometer uses infrared technology to provide the most accurate temperature reading currently available. Other temperature-taking methods, including thermal imaging solutions, may provide inaccurate results based on:
- Calibration settings
- Maintenance of the machine itself
- Skin temperature (rather than the preferred internal temperature)
- Environmental conditions, including indoor temperature and humidity
