temperature with a light stroke across the forehead, the TemporalScanner provides an innovative method of temperature assessment, based on infrared readings of temporal artery blood flow. The temporal artery area has a long history of temperature measurement, dating back to the early centuries before Christ. The TemporalScanner is fast, accurate, easy to use, and gentle enough to be used even on a sleeping patient. It is truly non-invasive, eliminating any discomfort caused by a thermometer inserted in the ear, mouth, or rectum, and can be used for all patients, newborns through geriatrics.
Ensuring superior functionality in the most demanding of hospital environments, the TAT-5000 easily stands up to the heavy duty demands of a high-performance hospital workplace, including intensive care units and emergency departments, and all inpatient units. Depending on patient care requirements, this model allows the choice of using disposable covers, or cleaning between patients with a disinfectant wipe, providing the means for significant cost savings by eliminating or substantially reducing probe cover usage. This revolutionary feature provides payback for full hospital installation in less than one year. The TAT-5000 is backed by a Lifetime Warranty.
"We have found the TA thermometer to be significantly more accurate than the tympanic thermometer for predicting rectal temperature in infants. The TA thermometer is significantly more sensitive than the tympanic thermometer for the detection of rectal fever in infants. In addition, the TA thermometer is better tolerated by patients than the rectal thermometer."
