Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometer Review...

Thanks to Exergen, we recently had the opportunity to review the Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometer:

About the Exergen TemporalScanner:
"The TemporalScanner Thermometer 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.
How does the TemporalScanner Thermometer work?
As you gently stroke the thermometer across the forehead crossing over the temporal artery, the sensor in its probe performs two processes:
First it scans like a video camera, capturing naturally emitted infrared heat from the arterial blood supply at about 1000 “frames” per second, locking in the highest temperature it senses and; second, at the same time, a patented system measures the ambient temperature of the site where the temperature is being taken. The patented "arterial heat balance" (AHB) software then synthesizes the two separate readings to accurately determine and display body temperature."
What we thought: We have tried a lot of thermometers. Growing up we used either the glass kind or the under-the-arm digital, so when our first baby was born I was excited to get the ear thermometer as a shower gift. However, when it finally came time to use it I found I couldn't get an accurate reading because it didn't actually fit into our little one's ear. Not only that, but apparently babies and toddlers don't like you sticking things in their ears:) So it was back to the under-the-arm digital for our kiddos, which if your kids are like mine, I don't have to tell you how fun that is:) You can see why I jumped on the opportunity to review Exergen's TemporalScanner Thermometer. And, WOWEE!! It couldn't get any easier. The kids even think it's kinda fun(for now:) It is even easy enough to use on a sleeping baby or toddler without waking them!! Exergen's TemporalScanner is definitely our thermometer of choice these days. It is reliable and easy to use. ABCD Diaries gives the Exergen TemporalScanner an A+!

Buy It: You can find the Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometer at Toys R Us, Walgreens and Wal-Mart stores.
Disclosure: ABCD Diaries was given a TemporalScanner for review purposes only. We were in no other way compensated. The opinions expressed in this post are ours and ours alone.
