The Family Review Network gave me the opportunity to test out the Exergen TemporalScanner.
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.
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.
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.
You can purchase the Exergen TemporalScanner in many places including BabiesRUs. Right now it is on sale for $49.99 at BabiesRUs.com.
