We are proud to announce this exciting award!
Selected following a rigorous yearlong evaluation process, InfectionControl.tips recognized Wello Inc.’s welloStation™as a Top Innovation Award:2017. The welloStation™ is a high-volume fever screening device that uses patented infrared technology to screen visitors for fever before they enter patient care areas of healthcare facilities.
Why welloStation was selected:
Why was this innovation chosen?
People often overestimate their own healthiness and doing so can have negative consequences when employees decide to continue to work while sick. Depending on the work environment and the illness, a sick employee can infect coworkers, customers, students, patients, and the general public. The introduction of a screening system to prevent infected individuals from spreading pathogens could have a real, positive impact on public health by mandating employee absenteeism during illness.
Our recent study showed that adoption of this new technology to provide high-throughput, self-service temperature screening of individuals in public spaces could dramatically reduce the spread of disease.
