Unlike traditional rectal, oral or ear thermometers, which require being placed into a body orifice

We use a range of security and intelligence measures, including body orifice
scanning, mobile phone signal detectors and robust searches with specially trained dogs.
We have also introduced Body Orifice
Security Scanners to detect internally concealed items, high sensitivity metal detecting wands and we are piloting mobile phone signal denial technology.
He added special body orifice

Unlike aged technologies such as oral, ear or rectal thermometers, which require being placed into a body orifice
to gain a temperature reading - or the full contact types that require being run across an individual's forehead -- the VeraTemp[R] is a completely non-contact, non/invasive thermometer, that finally puts an end to the unnecessary expense, handling and disposal of single use probe covers.
