The Medescan Touchless Thermometer is accurate within +/- 0.3.
Efficient – colour changing backlit display gives visual read and an audible alarm for high temperature.
Quick – reads in less than 1 second.
Hygienic – non invasive and works within 5-8cm of patient.
Reliable – stores up to 32 recorded temperatures.
Cost effective – no consumables or ongoing costs.
Simple to use – requires no specialised training.
Superior to other methods of temperature reading.
Axillary (armpit) temperature does not provide an accurate measurement of internal temperature and requires the Thermometer must be wedged tightly over the axiliary artery.
Tympanic (ear) temperature requires a good technique to produce accurate and consistent readings.
Rectal temperature adjusts slowly in comparison to changes in the body’s internal temperature.
Oral temperature is easily influences by recent food or drink ingestion and by breathing through the mouth.
The Medescan Touchless thermometer reads from the forehead without touching the patient making it an efficient and invaluable diagnostic tool.
