TORONTO, April 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Predictmedix Inc. (CSE:PMED) (OTCQB:PMEDF) (“Predictmedix” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce deployment of Safe Entry Stations at 4 key office towers in downtown Calgary and Edmonton in partnership with Apsen Properties and Juiceworks Exhibits (Juiceworks). Calgary’s The Edison, Palliser Complex, The Ampersand and Edmonton’s Bell Tower are raising the bar by providing a completely voluntary infectious disease symptom screening option for their tenants. This is a multi-unit, 24 month contract.
Safe Entry Stations are powered by artificial intelligence (AI). Military-grade multispectral cameras use thermal imaging and a proprietary hardware configuration to capture data patterns that are analyzed instantly. They provide an immediate assessment of individuals looking to access shared spaces by screening for multiple symptoms associated with infectious diseases, such as COVID-19. Moreover, the technology is 100% non-invasive, expediting the screening process even at high volume locations.
This ground-breaking technology is poised to change the way we look at the screening and diagnosis of infectious diseases. Our autonomous, comprehensive AI algorithms are continuously evolving via machine learning, are deployed instantly on the cloud, and deliver a multi-symptom analysis within seconds.
Safe Entry was first brought to Aspen’s Co-founder, Scott Hutcheson’s attention, by long-time friend Michelle Cameron Coulter. Alberta’s first Olympic Gold Medal Winner and an active member of multiple community organizations, Coulter commented: “As soon as I learned about Safe Entry, I knew I wanted to be involved. Having the opportunity to play a part in helping re-open our City, Province and Country is an incredible honour. This ground-breaking technology can meaningfully improve our current quality of life. I am not surprised that the team at Aspen chose to lead the way in our city.
“We are happy to have Safe Entry Stations in our buildings,” affirms R. Scott Hutcheson, Executive Chair, Aspen Properties. “This form of high volume symptom screening has added an innovative tool to our properties, and offers peace of mind to our tenants and guests in these uncertain times.”
“Working with Scott and the whole team at Aspen has been a pleasure. I have great respect for their commitment to their tenants and desire to pave the way in creating safe spaces,” says Jonathan Auger, President & Founder of JUICEWORKS.
Regarding this new partnership, Dr. Rahul Kushwah of PREDICTMEDIX commented:
“We are excited to partner with Aspen Properties as they are a large property management company in Western Canada and are seen as true visionaries in the industry. These deployments pave the way for our further expansion into the commercial real estate sector and being the high-profile locations these are, they offer us great visibility and an unique opportunity to showcase our cutting edge technologies.”
