So this Medisana No Touch Infrared Thermometer apparently gives fast and accurate readings of body temperature from simply pointing it at a target forehead. Hold it 5cm away from the head and the reading is delivered in about 1 second. Note that the thing needs to ‘acclimatise’ to the room temp first, before a reading can be taken, which can require 30 mins. So patience is a virtue for your patients. Priced at 49 CHF (around $42.00).
The temperature is taken above the eyebrow between the forehead and the temple. The value of the energy radiated there is measured and converted to a temperature value. The reading is displayed within 1 second. This enables you, for example, to take babies’ temperature without disturbing their sleep.
