MIAMI, Oct. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sanomedics International Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:SIMH); "Sanomedics" or the "Company"); a medical technology holding company that focuses on providing game changing products, services and ideas, announced today that the Company's Thermomedics, Inc. division has shipped the first group of devices to Atlanta Headquarters of the Center for Disease Control ("CDC") for immediate distribution to selected ports of entry, where touch-free temperatures are destined to identify fevers in arriving travelers from at-risk countries.
Keith Houlihan, President of Sanomedics, noted that "Caregiver TouchFree™ Thermometers are uniquely suited to this type of highly infectious virus, since the method of transfer is via contact with body fluids and contaminated substances from the victims."
He added that "Thermomedics is pleased to be able to supply this revolutionary instrument for use in the battle against the current threat to the nation's health and security. Using no probe covers and patient contact means that there is less contaminated waste attributable to the temperature screening process."
During a television interview Thursday on Miami's local Fox affiliate WSVN, Houlihan mentioned that authorities have been quick to recognize the technology's accuracy, safety, and strong clinical documentation.
Thermomedics' VP of Marketing and Sales, Ron Benincasa, indicated that the speed of the process (1-2 seconds), simplicity of technique (point and press one button), and protection of the temperature-takers make this an ideal tool in this urgent effort.
The Company has dramatically increased production requirements to meet the escalating demand for the Caregiver, not only for the CDC needs, but in response to the growing adoption of these devices in healthcare facilities across the United States.
