I was recently given the opportunity to review the Exergen TemporalScanner. It's an infrared thermometer that takes a reading from the temporal artery. It gets a more accurate temperature than any other way. It accurately registers body temperature to within +0.2 degrees. It's also less invasive and quicker. All you do is swipe it across the forehead.
My 2 year old son loves this thermometer. He kept asking me to check his temperature again and again. To check his temperature I push the button to turn it on, and then hold the button down while I run it from the middle of his forehead to the side. Then it gives me his temperature. I checked it several times and it was the same each time.
I love how simple it is to use. I can even check his temperature while he sleeps since all it does is sweep across his forehead. It only takes seconds! I also like how it takes a 9 volt battery instead of a hard to find button type battery.
The Exergen TemporalScanner is sold at Wal Mart, Walgreens, and other stores nationwide. Prices start around $30 and there is a $5 rebate here. You can also find them on Facebook.
