The Exergen TemporalScanner is a totally non-invasive system with advanced infrared technology providing maximum ease of use with quick, consistently accurate measurements. Advanced, patented technology measures temperatures with a gentle stroke across the forehead. The TemporalScanner Thermometer has been clinically tested for accuracy compared to rectal thermometers and temperature sensors inserted in the heart during course of patient treatment and accepted for use in major hospitals, making it the ideal thermometer for use with newborns, infants, children or adults. The TemporalScanner has patented software, providing arterial heat balance. This unique process determines temperature by accurately measuring the balance between the tissues warming from arterial blood and tissues cooling (warming) caused by heat loss (gain) to the environment.
One of the items on the top of my "Things I have to do because I'm a mom, but I wish I didn't have to do" is taking my kids' temperatures. No matter which way I take it, I have pin them down and hold them in uncomfortable positions (for all of us). This week I had the opportunity to review the Exergen TemporalScanner. It is so much easier than any of the other methods! Just a few seconds to slide across the forehead--instant reading! The only problem I had was inconsistent readings, but the website answered that question for me.I'd like to thank Exergen and Extraordinary Mothers for this review opportunity.
