Historically, the forehead has been used as a site for detecting fever for more than 2000 years. Temple thermometers utilizes this ancient wisdom and combine it with groundbreaking infrared technology to offer a range of features which are far superior to those of standard thermometers and allow for more gentle and less invasive temperature readings. This model, TAT-5000, has been designed with the exceptional durability and longevity required for intense hospital use.
Hygeinic and cost effective: TemporalScanner thermometer is a non-invasive method of measuring temperature, naturally allowing for a more hygeinic process compared to standard thermometry. Practitioners can choose to either wipe this thermometer clean between uses with a disinfectant cloth, or use it with a clean disposable cover for each patient. The ability to simply wipe the device clean significantly reduces the need for probe covers, improving both the facility's bottom line and environmentally friendly practice. This revolutionary feature provides payback for full hospital installation in less than one year.
Breakthrough technology: Temple thermometers work by measuring the peak temperature of the temporal artery, which is located in the forehead and is easily visible during infrared imaging. Arterial blood travelling through the body is the same temperature as blood leaving the heart via the aorta, making in the most accurate way to determine body temperature. The thermometer is stroked across the forehead to gauge arterial temperature and touched momentarily behind the ear to account for any blood lost due to diaphoresis. The device measures the temperature of the skin over the temporal artery, and the Precision Infrared System measures the ambient temperature to capture the heat naturally by the skin. Proprietary Arterial Heat Balance (ABH) technology converts the recorded peak temperature to a core one by sampling the two sets of data 5000 times per use, and synthesizing them to produce an arterial temperature reading.
High accuracy: This thermometer has a wide measurement range (16 - 43°C), and is accurate to 0.1°C or ±0.2°F. This allows for highly accurate measurements across a broad range of temperatures. The final reading displayed is the most accurate recording of more than 1000 scans taken per second. Temporal arterial temperature readings are more accurate than ear readings, and less invasive and threatening to patients than rectal thermometry.
Easy-to-use: This temple thermometer has been designed for the demanding, fast-paced hospital environment and features easy, one-handed operation. It features a large, easy-to-read LED display and takes readings very quickly, making it ideal for speedy, hassle-free use. Additionally, this thermometer features an audible indicator, an LED light indicator, a low battery indicator, and a 30 second auto-off function to help conserve battery life.
Patient friendly: This thermometer is completely non-invasive and can even be used on sleeping or resting patients with minimal disturbance. This makes it ideal for use with patients of all ages and has applications in neonatal, pediatric and adult care. The device is latex-free, removing the risk of allergic reaction.
Durable: TemporalScanner has been designed to withstand the heavy, intense use required in stressful hospital environments such as intensive care units and emergency rooms. Assuming proper care and cleaning, the device is covered by a lifetime warranty.
