About Temperature

The temperature of a body is a quantity which indicates how hot or cold the body is. It is a measure of the thermal energy per particle of matter or radiation; it is measured by a thermometer, which may be calibrated in any of various temperature scales, Celsius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are the thermometers waterproof?

No, never immerse the thermometer into water or other liquids.

Can I measure the temperature of baby milk or baby's bath water with a non-contact thermometer?

Yes, surface temperature readings are possible in the range of 0°C to 100°C.

Are the thermometers suitable for animals?

Our thermometers are developed and designed for humans. We do not have experience in animal measurements and do not take any responsibility for data obtained in animals.

Does room temperature affect readings?

No, as long as the operating temperature is between 10°C and 40°C (50°F and 104°F)! If the thermometer itself is outside this range no measurements can be performed. The display shows "L? or "H?. It may take some time before the thermometer reaches its operating conditions.

What is considered “normal” temperature?

Temperature ranges vary by age group. The following ranges are based on an oral measurement. The first group, babies and toddlers, ages 0 to 2 years range from 36.4°C – 38.0°C. Children age 3 to 10 years range from 36.1°C – 37.8°C. Young people and adults age 11 to 65 range from 35.9°C – 37.6°C, and adults over the age of 65 range from 35.8°C – 37.5°C.Please note that large individual variations are observed in groups of older people. Always consult with your healthcare professional for measurement methods and guidelines for reporting a fever.

Technologies

Continuous ear scanning

The continuous ear scanning mode views the entire ear canal and looks for the highest temperature that can be detected. Simply press and hold the start button for 3 seconds, gently rotate the probe inside the ear canal in a circular manner and the most accurate reading will appear.
