One of the “great” joys of parenthood is checking your child for a fever. My own memories of having my temperature checked “the old fashioned way” landed me in a therapist’s chair many years later…just kidding, of course. But fevers are no laughing matter, especially when your baby is sick for the very first time. While there are plenty of thermometers out there that offer less invasive ways of testing, their accuracy is debatable. Half the time I wonder if I’m using the darn thing correctly…The Exergen TemporalScanner seeks to take the frustration out of temperature-taking. It works as an infrared device that scans a child’s forehead in just two seconds. Once you hear the beep, you’re done. Think your fidgeting toddler can cooperate now?
In a Nutshell: Time to update your medicine cabinet. This thermometer may be a bit more pricey than your old-fashioned mercury one, but its simplicity won’t have you reaching for the adult aspirin as often either.
