Then to my doctors delight, I was sent an Exergen TemporalScanner™ infrared thermometer awhile back. This thing is amazing, I use it ALL the time. I did a review awhile back, but when I was asked by MamaBuzz to do a review and a giveaway for my readers, I couldn't resist. I love doing updated reviews, to show my readers when I actually continue to use a product and truly love it. I know there is a lot of controversy over getting sent a product and then reviewing it. I wanted to let my readers know, that this is one product my family truly truly loves. My husband and I both use it on us and our kids. My mom even asks to use it. It is quick and easy to use, and I have found it to be accurate as well on the occasions that we visit a doctor the same day of use. I have had it for awhile now with the same battery ~ it is durable ~ easy to clean as well. Plus you do not have to buy covers for it like I did with that ear one. Here is some info from the company ~
The Exergen TemporalScanner™ infrared thermometer, which reads a temperature in just two seconds, is available at Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Costco, Babies R Us, Toys R Us and Sam’s Clubs nationwide.Giveaway time ~ to enter, stop by the company website and tell me a feature you like.
It gives parents a comforting option for taking a temperature. Gentle as a healing hand against a child’s face, the Exergen TemporalScanner gauges body temperature in two seconds by capturing the naturally emitted heat from skin over the temporal artery, which runs across the forehead and is directly connected to the heart via the carotid artery.
The affordable Exergen TemporalScanner infrared thermometer is tested six times for accuracy during manufacture at Exergen’s plant outside of Boston and comes with a one year warranty. Tests show it is accurate to within +0.2ºF—a much more accurate reading than taking the temperature any other way including oral, rectal, axillary (under the arm) and tympanic (in the ear).
It’s also easy to use: Simply depress and hold its soft rubber-coated button and lightly scan across the forehead. A red LED light and soft beep indicate a correct scan. Ergonomically designed of injected molded plastic, the home unit features a high-contrast LCD temperature display, runs on one 9-volt battery (included), and meets and exceeds all regulatory requirements, including FDA, ASTM and UL.
The only thermometer manufactured in the United States, the Exergen Temporal Scanner is also better for the environment, using infrared sensor technology so it contains no mercury (like traditional glass bulb thermometers). The Exergen TemporalScanner also never needs any additional purchases, unlike tympanic thermometers, which necessitate clean plastic probe covers with each new use. It has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of less than $50.
