MIAMI, Oct. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sanomedics International Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:SIMH), announced today that the Company's Caregiver® TouchFree™ InfraRed Thermometers help to reduce contagion risk for health workers in hospitals, clinics and other healthcare facilities across the country. The devices have also begun service at major U.S airports for Ebola screening of passengers traveling from high risk locations. The Company's Thermomedics, Inc. division is distributing the thermometers across the healthcare spectrum.
During a television interview Sunday on NY1 News, Keith Houlihan, Sanomedics' Founder and President, mentioned that authorities have been quick to recognize the technology's strong clinical documentation, accuracy and safety. He noted that "unlike industrial and consumer infrared thermometers, Caregiver® is FDA-cleared as a clinical thermometer for use by medical professionals. Our 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."
Thermomedics' VP of Marketing and Sales, Ron Benincasa, indicated that the speed of the process, the simplicity of technique (one-button operation), and the protection of the temperature-takers make this an ideal tool in this urgent effort. Besides the efforts at airports, Caregiver is being used in hospitals and clinics around the world.
