The TAT-2000 forehead thermometer is a light-duty professional model intended for school nurses, nursing homes, businesses and other occasional use clinical settings. It allows the choice of using disposable covers (caps #134203 or full sheath #129462), or cleaning between patients with a disinfectant wipe. The TAT-2000 forehead thermometer is protected by a three year warranty. To order the TAT-2000 Temporal thermometer use part # 140001.
The temporal artery, easily visible in an infrared image, is scanned to find the peak temperature. The patented Arterial Heat Balance (AHB)TM method converts this peak to a core temperature by replacing the heat lost from natural cooling of the skin.
- Light-duty professional model intended for school nurses, nursing homes, and other occasional use clinical settings
- Very accurate temperature measurement
- Non-invasive, so fast, safe and comfortable
- for the patient
- More sustainable use of cover is optional,
- therefore, a future with NO WASTE
- Supported by over 100 peer-reviewed and
- published clinical studies.
