Summer Cold Watch With The Exergen TemporalScanner

Just because we are moving into warmer weather does not mean that the cold season is absent from my home. In fact Spring is one of those pesky seasons that I see way more sad faces from my children that need be. It seems that the back and forth of mother nature bring sore throats, runny noses, headaches and even fever. Being able to handle these blunders has become so much simpler in our modern home than even 20 years ago with my oldest son. Do you remember when we all only had the choice of a mercury style thermometer? Then I can remember thinking how amazing the digital style was when it first appeared and now we have the temporal {which is amazing}.


Exergen TemporalScanner, a must-have product for every household that was recently seen on the Today Show and on Grey’s Anatomy!  It is an infrared thermometer that captures temperature by scanning the heat that comes off the forehead (via the temporal artery).  This scanner is extremely useful and convenient because:

  • It is non-invasive, easy-to-use (only takes 2 seconds) and extremely accurate.
  • It will help parents avoid the painful experience of taking their sick child’s temperature rectally and uncomfortably.
  • It merely takes two seconds and a gentle swipe, so parents can even check a sleeping child’s temperature.

The Exergen TemporalScanner is a well-needed convenience item. Don’t get me wrong, every household needs a thermometer of some sort and I have seen the various styles range from a buck to $100+. Deciding which one is right for your needs and budget is important when shopping for medical supplies. The Exergen TemporalScanner is available for around $34.99 in most stores including Target and even Wal-Mart. So it is easily located in just about ever part of the US.

I found the TemporalScanner easy to use; it is a simple one button push. As long as you are in the correct position, it is accurate. I was one of those moms who never got a good read off my children with the ole’ style thermometers since they would never keep the unit under their tongue. With the Exergen TemporalScanner you don’t have to worry about them interfering with the reading. Within seconds and before they even have time to move or complain, I already know what my child’s body temp is. I can even sneak a temp check when they are sleeping!

Surprisingly the Exergen TemporalScanner is great on batteries. We did a test run using it 10-15 times a day for 10 days and they are still going strong. That is 100-150 uses which is probably more than a year’s worth in a typical home.

While their are other options out there, this one was the right choice for our family needs.
