Clinically-proven, slimline ‘pocket-sized’ infrared thermometer
New non-contact thermometer includes colour-coding and audible warnings
The first thing you notice about the new MedSense TF01 Infrared Thermometer is its size. Unlike conventional thermometer guns that are bulky and heavy, the MedSense weighs less than 70 grams and it fits neatly into the palm of your hand.
This clinically-proven, non-invasive forehead thermometer has been approved for use in Australia as a Class IIa Medical Device by the TGA and is perfect for families, medical professionals, workplaces and public testing.
The second thing you notice is how fast it is to give a temperature. To operate, the user holds the unit 3-5 cm away from the skin and aims at the middle of the forehead, using the LED positioning light. After pressing the button to take a measurement, the thermometer will show an accurate temperature reading in one second. To provide confirmation of whether the temperature is normal or not, an LCD backlit display screen shows green (normal), amber (attention!) and red (fever).
Simple to use, the device’s measurement range is 34.0 to 43.0°C (body temperature) and 0 to 93.2°C (object temperature) and temperatures can be shown in either Celsius or Fahrenheit.
In addition to people, the MedSense TF01 from Andatech can be used on objects and surfaces such as baby feeding bottles, bath water, the air temperature and other applications.
Providing further confirmation for users, the device can also issue an audio alert when the detected body temperature is high.
A feature that is ideal for home use, the device will keep track of body temperature fluctuations with the ability to recall the last nine temperature readings with just the click of a button.
It uses two 1.5V AAA batteries, with power usage saved by way of the auto shut-off after 30 seconds.
With dimensions of 34x160x50mm, the MedSense TF01 comes with a 2-year warranty and has an RRP of $149. It is available from andatechdistribution.com.au
