Holiday Gift Guide - Exergen TemporalScanner {REVIEW & GIVEAWAY}

Taking another person’s temperature is a very difficult thing to do especially if that other person is a screaming, squirming baby who doesn’t feel well! Imagine if you could take the temperature of your child in seconds by swiping the thermometer across the forehead. Guess what? You can! Exergen has created a thermometer that measures blood temperature via the temporal artery. How does this work, you ask?

The TemporalScanner Thermometer is a totally non-invasive system with advanced infrared technology providing maximum ease of use with quick, consistently accurate measurements. Advanced, patented technology measures temperatures with a gentle stroke across the forehead.


The TemporalScanner Thermometer has been clinically tested for accuracy compared to rectal thermometers and temperature sensors inserted in the heart during course of patient treatment and accepted for use in major hospitals, making it the ideal thermometer for use with newborns, infants, children or adults.


The TemporalScanner has patented software, providing arterial heat balance. This unique process determines temperature by accurately measuring the balance between the tissues warming from arterial blood and tissues cooling (warming) caused by heat loss (gain) to the environment.

I received an Exergen TemporalScanner to try out and love it!  I have no patience for taking my own temperature and waiting for the beep that tells me it's time to take the thermometer out of my mouth so I can imagine what it will be like when I have children besides the fact that getting a baby to hold still while taking a temp seems virtually impossible.  The TemporalScanner worked great for me!  It is extremely easy to use; just swipe it across your forehead.  Quick tip, though, make sure you take off the cover before using it.  Both me and my husband were wondering why our temperatures were so low and I finally realized it was because the cover was still on!  After we removed the cover, it seemed accurate.  I don't have a very good thermometer at home so I couldn't compare but the reading was close to my normal temperature.  I love that it only takes seconds and can be done while a person is sleeping without them even realizing you are taking their temperature!  I also love that it is painless and non-invasive.  You can purchase the Exergen TemporalScanner a multiple retailers including Toy "R" Us, Babies "R" Us, Costco, Walgreens, Sam's Club, Wal-Mart and BJ's as well as online at Walmart.com, Babiesrus.com, Walgreens.com, Costco.com, Babycenter.com and drugstore.com.  I found it online for as low as $28.99!  That's a bargain in my opinion!  I've paid close to $10 for a digital thermometer that you have to put in your mouth and hold for 3-5 minutes.  The extra money is definitely worth the convenience!

One of my lucky readers will have the distinct pleasure of winning a FREE Exergen TemporalScanner of their own!
