When my kids are sick and feel hot to the touch, I want to immediately know their temperature. If my kids are feeling especially sick, getting their temperature taken is a challenge. They even complain that it hurts to have it under their armpit or in their mouth. This is a problem, mom wants to know their temperature and kids are fighting it.

There is a new product that makes taking your kid’s temperature simple and non evasive. The Exergen TemporalScanner allows you to take your child’s temperature in just 2 seconds! Like hospitals, this technology measures body temperature by capturing heat emitted over the temporal artery. Simply slide the Exergen TemporalScanner across the forehead to the hairline while pressing the rubber scan button. You will have your child’s temperature reading in just seconds, well before your child even has time to know what happened.

This is a very easy way to take your kid’s temperature during the day and especially at night. You won’t have to wake your sick child up at night to take their temperature anymore. Just be sure to wait 30 seconds between scans to get accurate results.

The results are consistent and accurate. Using the Exergen TemporalScanner will give you results within +0.2F. This is a more accurate reading than you are getting with an oral, rectal, axillary – under the arm, or tympanic – in the ear thermometers. I have used various brands over the years, some are difficult to use. The Exergen TemporalScanner lets you know if you have an accurate scan, it will make a soft beep to inform you that the scan was done correctly and is complete.

Why I like the Exergen TemporalScanner

  1. It’s accurate. So many times I have to take and retake my child’s temperature when placed under their arm because they move around too much or in their mouth because it doesn’t stay under their tongue the whole time. I like knowing that this is a device that will give me accurate results within 0.2F and even if I had to retake the temp, it only takes a couple seconds, not frustrating minutes.
  2. Convenience – This is so much easier to use for both mom and kids with quick results. I can take their temperature without waking them up or fusing with the thermometer.
