https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js When a child gets sick parents need a product that is accurate and reliable to take their child’s temperature. As a mother of five children I know how challenging it can be to get a little one to hold still while having their temperature checked. Years ago doctors recommended that parents take their child’s temperature in their anus in order to get the most accurate reading. This method was very uncomfortable for the child and extremely frustrating for parents. Back then thermometers were made of glass and contained mercury which was later proven to be unsafe. When I was a child I remember my mother taking my temperature with a glass mercury thermometer placed under my tongue. This was more comfortable than through the anus but did not always produce a very accurate reading.
Medisim USA (makers of TempleTouch™ thermometer) has introduced a new innovative thermometer, MothersTouch™ thermometer. This simple thermometer fits nicely and comfortably on your finger. All you need to do is touch your child’s forehead with the finger holding the thermometer and in six seconds you will have an accurate reading.
The Mother’sTouch thermometer is different than most traditional thermometers because it does not take the temperature of the skin surface; instead it measures the body’s internal “heat flow”. All of Medisim’s thermometers use what they call, R.A.T.E.™ (Rapid, Accurate, Temperature, Establishment) Technology, a revolutionary and patented technology, allowing non-invasive, instant and accurate temperature measurements.
R.A.T.E.™ calculates the heat flow from the blood vessels to the skin surface, resulting in a rapid and accurate reading.
“Heat flow” is the transfer of heat from a place with high temperature to a place with low temperature. The heat flow is a function of the temperature difference between the two spots (blood vessels and the skin) and the thermal characteristics of the in-between tissues. The R.A.T.E.™’s algorithm does not make any assumptions regarding the skin (for calculation purposes) and calculates for every measurement all the parameters influencing the temperature, thus achieving outstanding reliability of the measurement.
The Mother’sTouch thermometer is so easy and accurate. Now that I am using this thermometer I will not be fighting with my squirmy little one and a half year old any longer in order to take his temperature. If tahing your child’s temperature is a constant battle you need to get the Mother’sTouch thermometer from Medisim USA. You can purchase the Mother’sTouch thermometer directly on their website at touchthermometers.com.
