The Most Reliable Method
Ear temperatures are clinically proven to be a reliable indicator of core body temperature. The tympanic membrane, also called the eardrum, is located close to, and shares blood supply with, the hypothalamus, the body's temperature control center. The ear is an easily accessible site for measuring body temperature, and especially comfortable for "uncooperative" patients such as young children. In fact, no consumer method is more accurate.
An Accurate and Gentle Thermometer
All Braun ThermoScan thermometers are clinically proven to be accurate. They meet the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) accuracy requirements, as it pertains to infrared thermometers. With its small and soft speculum, the Braun ThermoScan is ideal for use on infants. And because it takes only seconds to obtain a reading, it is easy to check whether someone has a fever. You will most appreciate the speed and ease of ThermoScan when your child is ill and you need to regularly monitor their temperature. ThermoScan gives you quick results, leaving you the time and energy to give your child the extra care and attention she or he needs.
Best of all, the risk of transferring germs from one user to another is virtually eliminated trough the use of disposable lens filters. Plus, Braun's unique lens filter detector helps ensure proper use, and the lens filter ejector makes it easy to remove the lens filters.
