When a little one is poorly with a temperature, it can be a very worrying time for parents. Braun have recently launched their new ThermoScan 7 with Age Precision IRT6520 which aims to reassure panicked parents in an instant with the very clever age precision technology. Did you know that a raised temperature for a newborn could be classed as ‘normal’ for a four year old? No, I didn’t either so this new thermometer is a very clever bit of kit.
The ThermoScan 7 with Age Precision IRT6520 is an ear thermometer which can accurately interpret a temperature reading and based on a range of ages, 0-3, 3-36 and 36+ months, will indicate via the colour coded LCD if the temperature is normal or not. For a worried parent who just wants to know in an instance if their little one has a fever, it is brilliant. It is so easy to use and gives quick reliable results which are very reassuring.
The colour coded LCD uses traffic light recognition; green indicates a normal temperature, yellow for an elevated temperature and red for a high temperature. Within a minute the user can take a reading (via the ear) and be informed of the temperature of their little one allowing them to take action or just keep an eye on their little one’s temperature.
The thermometer also has a range of clever features which are brilliant including a heated tip to ensure an accurate reading, a night light display to enable a user to use it in the dark and the ExacTemp guidance system which beeps to let a user know that the thermometer is in the right place in the ear canal to be able to take an accurate reading. The thermometer uses filters on the tip to keep the thermometer clean which are available separately when they run out.
The Braun ThermoScan 7 with Age Precision IRT6520 also records the last nine temperature readings which is brilliant for Parents who need to know if the temperature has risen or reduced. In the middle of the night when you take a temperature reading of a poorly child, you’re not going to remember what the last reading was so this thermometer does it for you so it’s one less thing to worry about.
I really like how the thermometer is stored away in its own case, it’s really easy to hold and there’s no over complicated buttons on the front making it easy to use and highly practical. I’m confident that I could give this thermometer to any of my family and friends and they’d be able to use it confidently within a matter of seconds. I think it’s so important that temperatures are taken seriously and you don’t want to waste any time faffing around with a gadget that you can’t work when your little one is ill.
The ThermoScan 7 with Age Precision IRT6520 thermometer is currently priced at £34.99 (Boots online)
I really like the ear thermometer. It’s a brilliant price with excellent features that will give Parents peace of mind just when they need it. In my opinion, it’s a must for any Parents First Aid Box and will come in handy on many occasions.
