Braun ThermoScan® measures the infrared heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue. Since the eardrum shares blood supply with the temperature control centre in the brain, the ear accurately reflects the core body temperature. When the temperature rises, it is immediately detectable in the ear. The result: the ear is an excellent site to measure temperature.
Using a small soft tip, the temperature is taken gently in the ear of the child in just a few seconds. In addition, the disposable lens filters provide unsurpassed hygiene, meaning that the whole family can use the same thermometer.
Unlike other thermometers, Braun ThermoScan® features a pre-warmed tip that minimizes the cooling effect that could result from the introduction of a cool probe tip. The pre-warmed tip helps ensure accuracy, measurement after measurement. Finally, the temperature is accurate to a tenth of a degree. Your child’s health cannot tolerate approximations!
Thanks to its patented pre-warmed tip technology, doctors and pediatricians rely on Braun ThermoScan® for professional accuracy.
