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.
