NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspired by the Ebola outbreak of '14, then Prof. Tim Johnson and son David co-founded Infrared Medical Technologies, LLC (IMT) to develop ThermoWand®, a long range medical grade thermometer. Now Dr. Johnson has also been awarded Patent #10502629 B2 for Temperature Measurement by Infrared Analysis.
ThermoWand® features a 36-inch medical grade temperature detection range—six times greater than any existing medical grade non-contact thermometer. Other thermometers can take readings from further than 3 feet but, those readings are far from medical grade. ThermoWand's® medical grade accuracy can detect fever from 3 feet.
ThermoWand's® range can be coupled with existing target acquisition, facial recognition and AI to create Autonomous ThermoWand®, a 24/7 human or animal, non-invasive, temperature monitor. Then tracking temperatures of people or animals walking through funnel points or doorways can be accomplished. Whether that be a hospital, airport, school, arena, privately held business, ranch, farm or kennel. This early detection aspect lends itself to early preventive measures. Now when fever is detected in humans or animals the identified target can be isolated from the healthy. The net result is lower transmission rates.
Dr. Johnson developed ThermoWand® technology after retiring from Wentworth Institute of Tech to pursue his doctorate at Pace University graduating in 05/19. He used his handheld Proof of Concept prototype to conduct multiple IRB's on humans and animals from 36 inches.
IMT has self-funded and raised over $200K with family/friends for their pre-product/revenue venture. IMT seeks to develop it's Patended industry leading ThermoWand® technology via the traditional manufacturing route with multiple fundraising rounds or Licensing with existing infrared thermometer manufacturers.
