Uniview is promoting measuring wrist temperatures whereas most others are just offering forehead or inner canthus measurements. But how well does wrist work?
IPVM bought and tested Uniview's 213H-BTS1 kiosk and wrist measurement module to see how well it performs.
In this note, we report our results of the Uniview OET-213H-BTS1, examining:
- How accurate is wrist temperature measurement?
- How do wrist and forehead measurements compare?
- Does wrist distance to the reader affect temperature measurements?
- How precise does a user need to be to get a wrist measurement?
- What impact do long sleeves or wrist accessories have on temperature measurement?
- What calibration or offset settings can users configure?
- How versatile is the wrist reader for installation?
- How easy or hard is it to spoof temperature measurements?
- What does the US FDA have to say about wrist temperature measurements?
