Exergen TemporalScanner Review And Giveaway

I can't count how many times I've had to retake a temperature because my son wouldn't stay still long enough. I've even tried two different "fast" thermometers but 10 seconds to a toddler(worse for a SICK toddler) is an eternity.

The Family Review Network gave me the opportunity to test out the Exergen TemporalScanner.

Photobucket

The Exergen TemporalScanner is the world's first infrared thermometer that measures the body's temperature from the temporal artery. After 2-3 seconds, you have a completely accurate temperature.

It is easier to get a false reading from taking your temperature under the arm, orally, or in the ear because of outside factors. If you drink anything, you have to wait for a correct reading and the amount of clothing you wear could alter the temperature under the arm. Many times the ear thermometers are positioned incorrectly during the reading and can be misleading.

The Exergen TemporalScanner is the fastest, most accurate way to measure body temperature. Even if there is perspiration on the forehead, you can place the probe on the back of the neck to get a reading.

To use, simply place the probe on the forehead, hold down the scan button and slide over to the hairline. Within 2-3 seconds it will beep letting you know the scan is over. Release the scan button and take the thermometer away from the head when it reaches the hairline. It even has an automatic shut off after 30 seconds.

It is the only Thermometer made in the US and is better for the environment since it uses infrared sensor technology and contains no mercury. The Exergen TemporalScanner runs on one 9-volt battery and meets all regulatory requirements.

Our Thoughts
The Exergen TemporalScanner is AMAZING! I don't think it even took 2-3 seconds for the reading to be complete. It was accurate and we were done before my toddler even knew what we were doing.

Photobucket

I'm going to tell on my husband. I gave him the thermometer to use and he didn't take the cap off. He kept telling me it was too low and something was wrong with it. I took it from him and saw the cap was still on. We had a good laugh over it. So AFTER the cap was taken off, it worked perfectly.

Our toddler was completely intrigued with it and didn't move. It was pretty much over as soon as we touched it to his head. I really wish we would have had this last month when we were all sick!

I will never own another thermometer. I am absolutely impressed with the Exergen TemporalScanner and will tell everyone I know that they NEED one. Even if your children are older, or you don't have any kids at all-THIS is the thermometer for you. You don't have to worry about whether or not you just drank something to alter the reading or how long you're going to have to keep it in your mouth while not being able to breath because of your stuffy nose.

Buy It
You can purchase the Exergen TemporalScanner in many places including BabiesRUs. Right now it is on sale for $49.99 at BabiesRUs.com.

I'd use this most on my baby girl. I hate the, um, suggested method for taking an infant's temperature with a regular thermometer. I'm sure I'd also get lots of use with my toddler, too.

Wow.. This thing would be amazing and helpful in my home!! I would use it on my 4 year old who hates to have a her temp taken sick as she may be she see's the ear one coming she will take off into a full sprint to leave me to avoid it,but it never works anyway so always have to end up doing under the arm one!!

Ok, I've totally been researching these things! I'm sold on the idea, but my husband could use some more convincing. This would be awesome for my 2 year old, since the last time we attempted to get her temperature, it ended in hysterics and no actual result!

I would probably use it most on my youngest, Peanut, since he's always teething and acting fussing. I never know when to take him to the doc to check his ears or not. A easier way of seeing if he had a temp would be a fabulous help! Especially with a new baby coming!

This would be gifted to my niece who had her first child on January 27th, a boy. I think all new mother's should have the temporal scanner/thermometer because ear infections are the number one ailment babies and toddlers seem to experience. I'm hoping to save her a few trips to the Emergency Room!

I must be the biggest dummy in the world because I bought one of these and couldn't get it to work worth a flip. I ended up taking it back. My sister has one and says it works fine. I tried hers and couldn't get a good reading either! If I win, will you give lessons?

Wow, I want this! I feel awful that I've never been able to take my son's temperature and he is now 11 months old. Fortunately he's never had a fever or had more than a cold, but I've been dreading the day he is really sick--this, however, gives me hope!

Although I'm quite certain we would use the scanner on both of our toddler granddaughters, we'd probably use it the most on the 2-1/2 year old. She squirms at the sight of a bandaid, let alone the thermometer. We cannot get her to sit or lay still long enough to take an under the arm temperature once, let alone, checking later to see if her temperature is getting higher or not. We could definitely use the temporal scanner thermometer!
