So taking a temperature should not make you, or your child, feel any worse. Thanks to infrared technology, Braun ThermoScan ear thermometers gently take a temperature in just seconds by measuring the heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue. Because Braun is the thermometer brand most used by pediatricians (based on surveys of pediatricians in the United States), you know you can trust this thermometer to give safe, accurate readings. It is also used by more mothers than any other infrared thermometer brand.

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.

I'm a first time Mom and I was at first hesitant to purchase this thermometer but, I'm glad I did. It truly works very well and is an excellant buy. Usually sells for $60.00 in any baby store. Also very easy to use.

I am sorry, but I cannot share the enthusiasm for this product. The readings are innacurate - several readings taken at short intervalls showed deviations of up to 2.5 degrees. To prove this, I repeated the test on myself with the same results. This is very critical since most doctors recommend a visit to the emergency room if the child's temperature exceeds 105. With this thermometer there is - at least for me - no accurate way of telling.

In addition, the button that activates the reading process gets stuck a lot, thereby producing no result at all. I finally replaced it with a professional model, the same kind that doctors use. Expensive, but worth it.

I am usually a fan Of Braun products. Not this one!

Great for babies! After a bit of practice, it is very easy to insert it properly into the kids' ears to get a proper reading. Major benefit is the speed. The old thermometers may be perceived as more accurate but I never had the heart to insert one into my babies' rectums and they take forever when done orally or under the arm. This is definitely the way to go.

We decided to buy this product despite being told that only rectal thermometer is accurate for infants. Nevertheless, knowing the usual high quality of Braun products, we gave it a try and are very happy about it!

It's one of the best investments we've ever made. We loved the following features:

- You do not disturb the baby and can measure the temperature even if the baby is asleep;

- The result is displayed in 2 seconds;

- Very ergonomic;

- With an easy used lens filter ejector, can be used for the whole family.

The thermometer has a convenient feature of switching between Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature scales. Also, if you need more than 1 temperature measurement stored in the memory, you can consider Braun IRT 4520 - it saves 8 readings.

Excellent gift, especially for baby shower!

The ThermoScan is very accurate and easy to use. Now, I can take my twin babies temperatures in about two seconds without bothering them at all. I've even taken their temperatures while they were asleep without waking them up. It's a great product.

It's a good thermometer, my son (3 and a half years old) has a problem: when he has fever, I can't feel it when I touch him. This item is very quickly to take his temperature and I don't bore him any more with others thermometers. Thanks BRAUN for it!
