“We have found the TA thermometer to be significantly more accurate than the tympanic thermometer. This is in predicting rectal temperature in infants. The TA thermometer is significantly more sensitive than the tympanic thermometer. Especially for the detection of rectal fever in infants. The TA thermometer is better tolerated by patients than the rectal thermometer.”
