Two NH companies team up to tackle Covid-19

A touchless temperature reader is being integrated into a new healthcare app to stop the spread

OptrTwo New Hampshire companies are teaming up to use technology to tackle Covid-19.

On-Site Medical Services, a Newport, NH, provider of on-site medical trailers for special events, and Orion Entrance Controls, a Laconia-based manufacturer of access control and security turnstiles and software, have launched two new products that work together to notify users of the presence of Covid-19 in order to limit further community spread.

On-Site’s Wellbility smartphone application offers a Bluetooth-based solution for accurate contact tracing and includes a symptom checker to effectively track potential Covid-19 exposure while maintaining the privacy of users. The Orion Pre-Entry Temperature Reader provides instant and touchless temperature data to help businesses, schools, healthcare facilities, transportation terminals and many other facilities safely return to in-person operations.

By integrating Wellbility with the pre-entry temperature reader, the app will provide key healthcare information to users at the individual and organization level. Temperature data collected from the OPTR will be saved on an individual user’s phone within the Wellbility app, which will aid in the early detection of COVID-19 symptom onset.

“We are extremely proud to partner with another local technology company like Orion,” said Andrew Keady, operations director for Wellbility. “By working together to integrate our technologies, we will mitigate the spread of this deadly disease.”

Orion Entrance Control, Inc., says they are excited to be partnering with Wellibility. “Together we will help our country’s continuing transition into the new normal of work and day-to-day life,” says Steve Caroselli, chief executive officer and founder of Orion Entrance Control, Inc.

Orion Entrance Control, Inc. and Wellbility are currently taking waitlist reservations for their respective platforms and plan to launch full capability in the coming weeks.
