When your child has a fever, you want a precision thermometer that you can depend on to give you an accurate and quick temperature reading. Introducing the Braun Thermoscan Ear Thermometer, featuring ExacTemp technology, used by more doctors and physicians than any other infrared thermometer.
As a parent of a young child, you may already know that on the average, your baby comes down with a fever seven times per year. When your baby is suffering with the discomfort from a fever, it can be really difficult to get your child to sit still long enough to take a temperature reading using conventional thermometers, digital or otherwise, either orally, rectally or under the child’s arm pit.
Ear thermometers deliver the most precise and accurate temperature readings
Here’s why …
When you take a temple or underarm reading, you’re measuring skin temperatures, not core body temperatures. Skin temperature readings can be easily skewed by outside conditions like sweating (common with a fever), or drafts in the room. Oral temperature readings can be influenced by similar factors such as drinking, eating and breathing.
However, the interesting characteristic of the eardrum is that it shares the blood supply with the temperature control center in the brain. That’s why changes in the core body temperature are reflected sooner and more precisely in the ear than other places of the body.
The Braun Thermoscan Ear Thermometer is designed with a pre-warmed tip that inserts easily and comfortably in your child’s ear canal. The patented pre-warmed tip feature reduces the cooling effect that a room-temperature tip will impose. And a unique guidance system enables more accurate and precise temperature taking results.
The ExacTemp infrared technology enables you to take your child’s temperature in a matter of just a few seconds, with accuracy and precision every time.

The Braun ThermoScan ExacTemp technology features a unique ear canal guidance system that provides positive visual and audible feedback when you have taken a successful measurement. In addition, a light flashes during the temperature measuring process and signals when the probe has not been placed correctly in you child’s ear canal. The light shines continuously once the temperature has been taken, and an audible tone is your signal that the temperature reading cycle is complete and you have taken an accurate reading.
The memory function is another feature that is really handy when you need to monitor your baby’s temperature through the course of a fever. As you know, a fever will often result in your child’s temperature fluctuating up and down before the fever finally breaks. The Braun ThermoScan thermometer’s memory function helps by allowing you to keep track of your child’s fluctuating temperature over time by storing up to eight different temperature results.
Infra-Red Technology and Flexible Tip For Fast and Gentle Temperature Reading
Parents know that children are fussy, especially when they’re uncomfortable and don’t feel well. You need a precise thermometer that is comfortable for the child, and more important, allows you to take your baby’s temperature quickly.
The Braun ThermoScan Ear Thermometer uses infrared technology to measures the heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue. This technology yields a precise and accurate temperature reading in a matter of just a few seconds.
Many parents find that the ThermoScan ear thermometer is so gentle and fast, they can actually take the temperature while their baby is sleeping, without waking the baby up.
To ensure temperature reading accuracy, Braun recommends that you replace the removable lens filter with a new one for each measurement. The lens filter protects the delicate temperature sensor in the tip from scratches and damage, as well as unwanted build-up of earwax which can affect the temperature reading. In addition, a fresh, clean lens filter before every reading will eliminate the risk of spreading germs, especially if you have more than one child in your family.
For peace of mind, and the most accurate, fast and comfortable way to take your baby’s temperature, consider the Braun Thermoscan Ear Thermometer with ExacTemp Technology.
