“My wife is an RN [registered nurse] And says that this unit works better than those used in his clinic. You can choose body or surface scanning as your source. I also checked my hot water temperature on each tap. Accurate reads in a second! “Wrote an Amazon reviewer.
How a no-touch thermometer works
According to the product description, a no-contact infrared thermometer is equipped with an infrared sensor that detects infrared heat delivered from a person’s forehead so that one’s temperature can be quickly measured. (However, the brand does note that it does range in accuracy to 0.4.)
To use, point the thermometer 1-5 centimeters (about 1 inch) away from the forehead, press and hold the SET button for three seconds and your temperature reading will come in one second. You can press the “Mode” button to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit.
The results are shown on an HD LCD screen which also changes color to show clear results. If a person’s temperature is normal (95.5 ° -99.1 ° F) then the screen will read the temperature and show green color. Should a person have a low fever (99.3–100.4 ° F), the screen will turn yellow and if a person has a high fever (100.6 ° –109.2 ° F), the screen will turn red.
While the title of the Amazon product states that the thermometer is intended for adults, the product description states that it is suitable for all ages and can be safely used to take temperatures for adults and children.
