The Exergen TemporalScanner is an infrared thermometer, that reads a temperature in just two seconds, with a simple swipe across the forehead! I know... I told you it was cool!
It is so easy to use... just depress and hold the button and then lightly scan across the forehead. A red LED light and soft beep let you know the scan is complete. It is completely fast and absolutely non-invasive! The thing I really like about this is I can take my child's temperature when they are asleep, which is a huge blessing when sleep comes so hard for them when they're ill! I have to giggle though, now that we have this amazing thermometer my kids always want their temperature taken! I'm happy to oblige! I feel like Doctor McCoy on Star Trek with this gadget (oops, there's my geeky side showing!)
If you've been to the hospital recently, I bet you've seen one of these babies in action. Now you can have one in your own home. Wal-mart, Walgreens, Costco, Sam's Club, Babies 'R Us, and Toys 'R Us are currently carrying these (to name just a few places).
Along with all the fun things this season brings, are a few not-so-fun things... like cold and flu season. How handy to have the Exergen TemporalScanner in your home. We have already had the flu here (thankfully just a mild case) but this thermometer was wonderful to have. My kids actually let me take their temperature with no complaining (like I said, they ask for it all the time), but more importantly, I knew I was getting an accurate reading. Tests show that using the Exergen is a much more accurate reading than taking the temperature any other way, including oral, rectal, tympanic (in the ear) and under the arm (axillary). Can't beat that!
This really is a wonderful thermometer and I'm thrilled to have one in my home. Now, I hope you're sitting down because.... wait for it..... You have the opportunity to win one for yourself! How completely cool is that?!
