Braun, the #1 brand in thermometry, recently launched a new product called the Braun No touch + forehead thermometer. This one-of-a-kind thermometer offers two clinically proven options for temperature taking: completely non-invasive no touch or traditional forehead touch. The Braun No touch + forehead thermometer sounded really cool, so I was psyched at the chance to review it especially with cold and flu season in full swing.
My son, who is 20 months old, is usually very difficult whenever his temperature has to be taken. It’s not something my wife and I look forward to, until now. The Braun No touch + forehead thermometer arrived just in time because my son came down with a cold about a week after receiving it. This product was a lifesaver and made the whole temperature taking process absolutely stress-free.
This thermometer is so easy to use!! If you want to use the non-invasive way, all you do is stand 2 inches away from the child’s forehead and scan. It’s that simple and there’s no touching at all! I loved the fact that I could take my son’s temperature while he was sleeping and he didn’t wake up from feeling the thermometer on his head (yes he’s that light of a sleeper!!). Considering how fast germs spread nowadays, another benefit of the Braun No touch + forehead thermometer is that it eliminates the need for skin contact, which makes it the more hygienic alternative when taking multiple readings on kids and adults.
Here is some additional information on other features as well as information about the exclusive technology behind the product. The No touch + forehead thermometer measures infrared energy radiated from the skin at the center of the forehead area. The thermometer’s sensor captures twice as much thermal energy as the traditional forehead thermometer, producing a more accurate gauge of body temperature. The thermometer then automatically converts the final reading to the oral temperature equivalent, which is important when communicating with doctors and other medical professionals.
The thermometer’s LED light and on-screen prompts help with proper placement on the forehead and a color-coded temperature guidance feature aids in fever detection. Depending on the reading, the color of the thermometer’s display will change to green, yellow or red, helping the user easily decipher and monitor the status of a temperature.
The Braun No touch + forehead thermometer has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $59.99 and is available at most mass and drug retailers such as Walgreens. For more information, visit braunthermometers.com.
