New Thermometer Only Takes One Second to Provide Results

Parents need a whole range of items to raise a child, including medical devices. Taking a child’s temperature when there seems to be something a little bit off is something that parents do constantly. But even when you take the temperature, you don’t always know if you should be concerned or not by the results. This often results in a frantic google search. And, let’s be real – babies and toddlers aren’t always the fondest of the whole process either!

Andatech has created an infrared thermometer, the MedSense TF01. It is perfect for not just parents but quite literally anyone! The size is great as it only weighs 70g and fits nicely in the palm of your hand, which makes transporting it with you wherever you go is no problem at all. But more importantly, and a feature we know is going to be extremely useful, is the backlit display screen. After taking the temperature, the screen will let you know if the temp is normal or not. You’ll know very quickly if there is a fever present due to the red warning. There can also be an audio alert issued when the detected body temp is too high, providing further confirmation for the user. How easy and reassuring! There’ll be no more panic-induced Google searches and those 20 seconds of wondering if your baby is going to be fine.

Taking the temp itself is so simple and requires no contact with skin at all. This is great because it means you won’t need to sterilise the device at all after using it. The user simply just needs to hold the thermometer about 3 – 5cm from the skin, aiming it at the centre of the forehead. Don’t worry, there’s a LED positioning light so you can’t get it wrong. Press a button and ta-da! An accurate reading is given in one second. The measurement range is 34.0 to 43.0 degrees Celsius for body temperatures.

But there is still more to this handy device – the thermometer can also be used for objects. It can read the temp of objects such as baby feeding bottles and bath water, all the way up to 93.2 degrees Celsius. Prefer it to be shown in Fahrenheit? Simply select that option instead of Celsius.

At PakMag, anything that makes life easier for a parent (or anyone, for that matter) is something we can get behind. We love this little thermometer for this reason. It’s perfect for families, medical professionals, workplaces and more. You can read more about all of the nifty little features of the device on the Andatech website.

The Benefits of Getting an Air Purifier

Healthy air is not something that the majority of us probably think about. But it’s definitely something we should. There are often so many pollutants in our air without us even realising. These can affect asthma, allergies and more. Yes, they might be invisible and tiny, but they can still be enough to be harmful to your health or aggravate any health issues you already have. In small spaces, particularly in homes and offices, the air is being shared between multiple people. This spreads around anything harmful and pollutants that are present. Cleaning the space often and well, washing your hands, covering your mouth before coughing and other precautions are great to practice, but there is more you can do – by getting an air purifier. 

Medical grade air purifiers like the ones from Andatech help to purify our indoor air. In general they get rid of these harmful pollutants and bacteria. Using a UV light, the air purifier can inactivate microbes such as bacteria and viruses that are trapped on its filters.

Getting an air purifier is an easy way to ensure you are taking that extra step to help keep the air cleaner. This is particularly important if you’re a parent of small children (who we all know aren’t being their cleanest at the best of times). Or, maybe you share a space with an immunocompromised person. 

Having pets also means you most likely have a lot more of their dander in the house than you realise. So, if you have family members with allergies then this can become a problem. Unfortunately, vacuuming doesn’t tend to remove all of the pollutants, and can end up recirculating them. Plus, asthma is very common, and even more common are the triggers that can cause asthma attacks. These include allergens such as tree and grass pollen, animal dander, and irritants such as smoke, strong odours and chemical fumes. Opening windows for fresh air is a good idea in theory. However, it doesn’t quite work as the best solution either, considering that doing so can allow more triggers to enter inside.

Air purifiers that come with a HEPA filter draw in dust, hair, gases and chemicals and trap them. This prevents them staying airborne. If you have pets or live with a person that has asthma, it’s a good idea to look into getting an air purifier. Even if you’re someone who simply doesn’t like strong odours or you have a relative that smokes, an air purifier can reduce smells for you.
