The AlcoSense TruTouch 2500 combines the
state-of-the-art in alcohol testing with an integral biometric
identity verification capability. It is a 100% noninvasive, touch
based measurement that offers significant improvements in safety and
ease-of use relative to existing measurement approaches.
The TruTouch measurement is performed by transmitting light into the
skin via contact with an optical touch pad, and collecting a portion
of the light reflected back by the skin. The collected light is
analyzed to determine the tissue alcohol concentration and to verify
the user£s identity.
The light used in the TruTouch measurement is in the near-infrared (NIR)
and is safe for human skin exposure. The light levels are less than
the limits established by the FDA for non-ionizing radiation (orders
of magnitude less that that required to cause skin heating or damage
such as sunburn.) It is similar to holding a low-powered flashlight
against one£s skin and is safe for both short and long-term
In 2011 the U.S. Center for Disease Control published data that
showed heavy drinkers cost the U.S. economy over $220 Billion per
year £ lost productivity accounts for 70% of this waste while
healthcare costs account for 11%.
Companies would like to reduce
these costs and increase productivity, but until now, technology
that could provide self administered, cost-effective daily alcohol
testing (the only true way of eliminating on-duty alcohol
impairment) didn't exist other than through the use of interlocks,
which to date have largely limited to use in vehicles.
Random screening can deter the casual user, but those with a serious
alcohol problem are far less likely to change their inherent
behaviour patterns. For this reason this form of occasional
screening can fail to have the impact the company is looking for and
alcohol use can continue to cost the company, and thousands of
others, billions of dollars a year. Testing every person, every day
changes the underlying behaviour itself.
Whilst not a UK Certified device, the TruTouch can easily be
combined with a unit such as AlcoDigital£s Lab-in-a-Bag, with
positive results followed up by a Certifiable test for both Drugs
and Alcohol that can be defended in court if necessary.
Imagine your organisation free of the costly and dangerous effects
of alcohol abuse.....
