Exergen Temporal Scanner Review

Do you remember the old days of the mercury thermometers that took SO long to complete a temperature reading on your sad, sick little one?  I am so glad those days are long past and now- Exergen has created a wonderful alternative.  The Temporal Scanner is a new and effective way to monitor the temperature of anyone who is under the weather.  It is quick, accurate, and easy to use- something all moms and dads will appreciate.

About the Exergen Temporal Scanner:
The TemporalScanner Thermometer is a totally non-invasive system with advanced infrared technology providing maximum ease of use with quick, consistently accurate measurements. Advanced, patented technology measures temperatures with a gentle stroke across the forehead.

The TemporalScanner Thermometer has been clinically tested for accuracy compared to rectal thermometers and temperature sensors inserted in the heart during course of patient treatment and accepted for use in major hospitals, making it the ideal thermometer for use with newborns, infants, children or adults.

The TemporalScanner has patented software, providing arterial heat balance. This unique process determines temperature by accurately measuring the balance between the tissues warming from arterial blood and tissues cooling (warming) caused by heat loss (gain) to the environment.
I was so pleased to be given the opportunity to try a Temporal Scanner by Parent Reviewers.  We have had quite a few opportunities to test the Temporal Scanner during this flu season and we have had wonderful results.  It is so quick that my little ones didn't even know we were taking their temperature.  We often had to hold my youngest child still while taking her temperature under her arm, causing her even more discomfort and tears.  With the Temporal Scanner this was not any issue at all.

Here's how the Temporal Scanner works:
As you gently stroke the thermometer across the forehead crossing over the temporal artery, the sensor in its probe performs two processes:

First it scans like a video camera, capturing naturally emitted infrared heat from the arterial blood supply at about 1000 “frames” per second, locking in the highest temperature it senses and;

Second, at the same time, a patented system measures the ambient temperature of the site where the temperature is being taken. The patented "arterial heat balance" (AHB) software then synthesizes the two separate readings to accurately determine and display body temperature.

As with any thermometer, taking temperatures properly is critical to obtaining accurate temperatures, so please read all instructions carefully and thoroughly before using this product.
To Buy:

You can purchase the Temporal Scanner at Wal-mart, Babies R Us, Walgreens and many other major retailers.  For a complete list click here.
