When my children are sick there are two things I dread, giving them medicine and taking their temperature. My 7 month old and my 5 year old hate both equally! Thank goodness that Braun, the #1 thermometer brand has solved the temperature issue for me and other families alike. Braun recently introduced its latest innovation, the Braun Forehead Thermometer. This new thermometer combines clinically proven accuracy and speed for quick, non-invasive measurements. Combining clinically proven accuracy and speed for reliable, non-invasive measurements in just seconds, the Braun Forehead Thermometer is a “must-have” tool for every family, baby registry, diaper bag and medicine cabinet.
What I like best about the Braun Forehead Thermometer is the great ergonomic design and the fact that it’s gentle enough to be used on my baby while he’s sleeping. It’s very easy to use and ideal for the whole family to use. The thermometer provides a step-by-step on-product usage guide and user-facing digital temperature readouts on a large, backlit screen, which is handy for nighttime readings. Another cool feature of the thermometer is that it offers a fever guidance system, which indicates the severity of each reading with a green, yellow or red light, helping parents easily decipher and monitor the status of their child’s temperature.
How does the Braun Forehead Thermometer work? It’s designed to measure the temperature of the skin above the temporal artery, a major artery of the head that offers constant blood flow to the heart. To use the Braun Forehead Thermometer, simply turn on the device by pressing the power button, place the thermometer just above the eyebrow, press the “temperature” button, and slowly swipe the thermometer against the skin down to the temple and back. When the device beeps, the reading will appear in large, easy-to-read numbers.
The Braun Forehead Thermometer’s built-in infrared technology takes multiple readings during each forehead swipe, processing the readings using a unique algorithm for an accurate measurement. The thermometer automatically converts the final reading to the oral temperature equivalent, which is important when communicating with pediatricians and would normally be obtained through a more invasive under-the-tongue thermometer.
The Braun Forehead Thermometer has a suggested retail price of $49.99 and is available at available at most mass and drug retailers including Walmart and Babies R Us. For more information, visit braunthermometers.com.
