EXERGEN TemporalScanner™ with Smart Glow Features Video Review
When a child is sick, getting their temperature reading is certainly not fun when using an old fashion thermometer. I actually used to loathe having to insert our glass thermometer into my children’s rectums, or under their tongues. It just was not an enjoyable experience for either of us. Let’s face it, young children never cooperate when it comes to keeping thermometers under their tongues either.
Earlier in the year we received the amazing opportunity to work with the folks at Exergen for a review on their Exergen Temporal Artery Scanner. I thought that their temporal artery thermometer was a lifesaver! When I was asked to review their latest TemporalScanner™ with *New* Smart Glow Features, I was really excited because I can always appreciate an innovative product!
How the EXERGEN TemporalScanner™ with Smart Glow Features Works:
With the EXERGEN TemporalScanner™, a simple swipe from the forehead to the temple, accurately measures someone’s body temperature in a matter of seconds. The Temporal Artery is directly connected to the heart via the Carotid artery, and it’s the only exposed artery at the skin surface that maintains constant blood flow. This makes it a perfect place for measuring body temperature. It’s accuracy is comparable to the rectal temperature, and changes can be measured much faster.
While holding down the button on the thermometer, it takes 1000 readings per second, and chooses the most accurate reading to display. The reading is then instantly displayed on the digital readout. IT’s that simple!
As great as that is, Exergen went ahead and created a newer model of the Temporal Artery Thermometer! You still get the same fast and accurate body temperature readings as with the original, but now there are 4 new features that really make the Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer stand out!
So, let’s explore these new features! First off, the Exergen TemporalScanner™ now has a glowing display. This new feature allows you to read the display in a dark or poorly lit room. This can come in handy while checking someone’s temperature during the night without turning on the lights, or checking your own temp while nursing a migraine.
Simply hold in the button, stroke the thermometer across the forehead to the temple, and view your reading. Notice the soft-glow of the display. This is makes it much easier on the eyes especially in a dark setting. Plus, there is nothing worse than waking a cranky, or sick child making this product a must have for EVERY parent!
Another amazing feature of this product is that it has an 8 temperature memory. I don’t know about you, but we totally do not fair well with paper in our home. My kids LOVE to take important documents and seemingly eat them so having to manually record temperatures just wouldn’t fair well.
It also features a programmable beeping sound that can be turned on or off to avoid waking a sleeping child, or sick adult. Starting with a blank display, simply tap the button ten times until the display flashes “loud”. Now, hold in the button until the display flashes “shh”. To turn it back on simply repeat those easy to follow steps.
Lastly, if you prefer Celsius over Fahrenheit, the Exergen TemporalScanner™ can conveniently switch between the two.
Next time you need to take someone’s temperature, reach for the EXERGEN TemporalScanner™ to make everyone’s experience a whole lot better. Not only is this temporal scanner quick, an easy to use, but it is also non invasive. No more probing, or sticking old fashion thermometers in places where the sun don’t shine!
