HUSHIDA provides a wide variety of thermal imagers and infrared thermometers, not all of them are suitable for use with detecting elevated body temperature.
Thermal imaging stocks have gotten a lot of attention in 2020 due to the product's potential role in detecting people who may be infected with COVID-19.
These devices are playing a role in allowing companies to safely reopen businesses as the economy recovers, but thermal imaging also has a wide range of other applications that could generate some big long-term gains for investors.
As lockdowns ease, thermal imaging cameras are popping up in all sorts of public places to assess the state of people's health.
What do thermal imaging cameras do?
Using infrared technology, thermal cameras detect radiating heat from a body - usually from the forehead - and then estimate core body temperature. These cameras are an extremely powerful tool, often deployed by fire fighters to track smouldering embers and police to search for out-of-sight suspects.
But they are not designed to be medical devices. So how useful are they in the current pandemic?
They can give a reasonable measure of skin temperature, to within half a degree - but that's not the same as body temperature.
What is normal body temperature?
About 37C (98.6F). A high temperature is usually considered to be 38C or over. But normal temperature can vary from person to person and change during the day. It can also fluctuate during a woman's monthly cycle.
Taking an accurate reading of core body temperature isn't easy. Although it can be measured on the forehead, in the mouth, the ear and the armpit, the most accurate way is to take a rectal reading.
