This Infrared Handheld Thermometer is used for the intermittent measurement and monitoring of human body temperature for patients of all ages in a medical professional or home setting environment. This infrared thermometer may used to measure temperature on either the forehead or wrist.
Benefits of Non-Contact Infrared Thermometers
- Non-contact approach may reduce the risk of spreading disease between people being evaluated
- Easy to use
- Easy to clean and disinfect
- Measures temperature and displays a reading rapidly
- Provides ability to retake a temperature quickly
Normal body temperature varies by person, age, activity, and time of day. The average normal body temperature is generally accepted as 98.6°F (37°C). Some studies have shown that the “normal” body temperature can have a wide range, from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2°C).
WHY USE INFRARED?
There are a number of reasons why you should consider choosing infrared technology for your temperature reading needs. When shopping for a thermometer to add to your stable of equipment, consider purchasing a quality infrared thermometer for some of the following reasons.
1. Accuracy. Obviously, you need to be confident that you are getting an accurate reading from your thermometer when you put it to use, and infrared models have a great reputation for accuracy. The technology used in these products is simple yet advanced, and you should be able to rely on the information that you receive – provided that the thermometer is used in the right way.
2. Safety. One of the great things about being able to check on temperature remotely is that you don’t actually need to touch the object in question. If you are trying to take the temperature of another human, you won’t need to place your hand, or even another piece of equipment onto the patient. Just by aiming your Infrared Thermometer towards the person’s forehead or wrist, you can get all of the information you need without putting yourself at risk.
3. Contamination prevention. Another benefit to the remote measuring system is avoidance of contamination. This applies in many applications, such as food industry, medical facilities, schools and for home use as well. Since you don’t need to touch the item that you are measuring, you won’t need to worry about contamination Rather than having to make sure that all of your temperature measuring equipment is properly sterilized prior to each use.
4. Durability. You want an Infrared Handheld Thermometer that is tough enough to stand up to the demands of the jobsite, workshop or just being bounced around in your toolbox.
There are certainly more advantages to using infrared thermometers, but the items listed above are some of the most important. Additionally, the cost of this technology has come down in recent years, meaning you can access this great method of temperature measurement for a significantly lower cost than it would have required just a few years ago.
