Produced by Wello Inc., the "WelloStation" devices will provide "fever surveillance" detection in order to alert school faculty to possible fluctuations in body temperatures according to the company's website.
"The WelloStation measures your body's core temperature using a patented, non-contact and non-invasive process," the product description reads. "An elevated body temperature is the number one indicator of infection. WelloStation quickly screens for fevered individuals so you can either prevent them from entering or perform additional medical checks."
The announcement follows more than a week of countless fumbles by local and federal authorities as suspected Ebola cases begin popping up across the country.
Law enforcement officers were outraged Thursday after finding out that five unprotected employees with the Dallas County Sheriff's Department were ordered to enter the apartment of Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan to present his quarantined family with a court order barring them from leaving their home.
