This digital infrared thermometer from LifeTemp Radient allows doctors and nurses to take temperature readings in a non-invasive fashion. The device is also suitable for home use. Users can record temperature without making contact with adults or children. This method is safer, as it drastically reduces the risk of device contamination or cross-infection with other patients. The non-invasive design also means that patients do not have to cooperate or be rendered uncomfortable during temperature readings. This advantage is particularly vital for infant care, as doctors and nurses no longer need to wake babies to check for fever.
The LifeTemp Radient digital infrared thermometer not only takes precision temperature readings of the human body, but can also provide temperature measurements for objects or surfaces.
This product is featured on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods and has been clinically tested and approved as a safe and accurate medical device.

A note on body temperature measurement ranges:
Normal body temperature is typically cited as 37oC (or 98.6oF). However, body temperature will vary depending on multiple factors. A person’s age, level of physical activity and hormones can all affect body temperature. How you take the temperature reading may also impact the result. For example, an oral temperature reading may differ from a rectal reading, which won’t be as consistent as readings taken on the non-contact digital infrared thermometer. You can take multiple temperature measurements throughout the day and review changes on the thermometer’s inbuilt memory system.
