Product Description

SOMATOINFRA is a non-invasive technology that captures high-speed, dynamic, real-time images of functional life processes. The system collects and visualizes electromagnetic radiation data (human radiation) in order to illustrate high-speed human metabolic life processes. The system consists of an infrared detector and laptop computer or iPad that in total weighs 4 kg.

Design Specifications

The Somatoinfra Diagnostic System consists of

  1. A portable infrared detector which can optionally be worn on the head of the Doctor/Operator
  2. Laptop computer or IPAD with SOMATOINFRA Software loaded.
When a patient is scanned with the infrared detector, the Infrared signals ( human radiation) emitted by the patient's body are converted by the software into images on the laptop/IPAD screen. The operator can ZOOM into a particular area of interest and can convert the image into 3 D for a more detailed exam. The system can be transported in a small bag and operated using battery or solar power, 3.5 hours battery life at full charge, -- 2 hours to charge the battery, -- uses 15W, is DC powered -- dimensions: 40x25x2 mm
