Fast Screening Strip / product design

Fast Screening Strip

If not well sterilized, traditional thermometers are more likely to spread disease because of repeated use. Particularly during periods of outbreaks, such as the SARS outbreak, viruses are spread, causing severe fever and infection. The concept of Band-Aids and stick notes was applied to design a disposable device for screening body temperature. Body temperature can be measured at any time by sticking the device on the forehead and assessing temperature according to the color displayed. The strip is disposable to prevent infection; therefore, it is comparatively time-saving, hygienic, and economical.
