Fast, Easy, & Accurate: Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner

Having a toddler, you realize how hard it really is to take a temperature. I love the Exergen TemporalScanne. It makes taking a toddlers temperature easy! Plus with the softly illuminated display screen, I can easily see the temperature in a darkened room! With a fast swipe across the forehead, you can quickly know if your child has a fever or not. This is the perfect gift for new moms! With the holidays quickly approaching, this is something you should scoop up for a new mom gift, or maybe even for yourself!

The Exergen TemporalScanne allows you to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius modes easily. I also love that this smart technology keeps a record of the last eight temperature readings for instant recall to check on fever progression. As a mom, that is excellent since you may not remember the last temperature.

Why is it more accurate than ear temperature?

A major reason ear thermometers are considered inaccurate by medical professionals is because the positioning of the probe in the ear canal is inconsistent, thus creating inconsistent readings and frequently missing fevers. The temporal artery thermometer scans the forehead area for the temporal artery and it is almost impossible to miss the artery during a scan. Furthermore, the TemporalScanner™ has been proven more accurate than ear thermometers by a Harvard Medical School study.

Made in the United States, the Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanne™ is the number one preferred thermometer by both nurses and pediatricians and is backed by more than 70 clinical studies proving its accuracy.

To use, simply slide the thermometer in a reasonably straight line across the forehead, midway between the eyebrows and the upper hairline.


The Exergen TemporalScanne Thermometer is a non-invasive system with advanced infrared technology providing maximum ease of use with quick, consistently accurate measurements. Advanced, patented technology measures temperatures with a gentle stroke across the forehead.

The thermometer is easy to use, with just a few simple steps: Simply depress and hold its large, soft button and lightly scan across the forehead. A red LED light and soft beep indicate a correct scan.

Nearly two billion temperatures are taken each year with the TemporalScann. It is used in thousands of hospitals, clinics and pediatricians’ offices across the country, as well as in millions of homes. In addition to being the #1 preference of pediatricians in the United States, it is the #1 preference of nurses, and the #1 selling retail thermometer.

The TemporalScanne Thermometer is tested six times for accuracy during manufacture at Exergen’s plant in Watertown, Massachusetts and comes with a one-year warranty. It runs on one 9-volt battery (included), and meets and exceeds all regulatory requirements, including FDA, ASTM, EC, and UL.

Created by Harvard-research scientist Dr. Francesco Pompei, the TemporalScanner has become one of the most efficient, non-invasive thermometer ever created. The Exergen TemporalScanner’s performance is supported by more than 50 peer-reviewed published studies covering all ages from preterm infants to geriatrics and all care areas from hospitals to homes.

Sold in major retailers including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Costco, Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us, Kroger and BJ’s, the Smart Glow thermometer’s suggested retail price is $49.99. For more information visit Exergen’s website.
