Thermometer Evolution

For nearly 200 years, glass-mercury thermometers were the only tools available for measurement of body temperature. Because glass was slow and the danger of injury or toxicity due to mercury was becoming unacceptable, electronic predictive thermometers were developed.

Although fast, the final temperature indication may not always be accurate, because it’s not a measured value but a calculated value. Ear (tympanic) thermometers seemed to be a better answer for a while. However, they’re difficult to use on younger children, require expensive probe covers and, they’ve proven to be technique-dependent… especially in the untrained hands of worried parents.

The actual-reading digital thermometer, addresses the final temperature shortcomings of the predictive thermometer without sacrificing speed. Our thermometer surpasses the tympanic (ear) thermometer because ours is much easier to use, requires no expensive probe covers and costs less than 1/3 the price of the ear thermometer.
