Measuring a person’s temperature can be done in several ways.
One method to measure a person’s surface temperature is with the use of non-contact infrared thermometers (NCITs). NCITs may be used to reduce cross-contamination risk and minimize the risk of spreading disease.
The benefits of NCITs are: non-contact approach may reduce the risk of spreading disease between people being evaluated, they’re easy to use, and easy to clean and disinfect.
Also, they measure temperature and display a reading rapidly, and they provide ability to retake a temperature quickly.
The FastTemp Infrared Thermometer:
Hold the thermometer just 5 cm. from your forehead or ear and you'll get an accurate reading in one second.
It measures body temperature from the infrared energy emitted by the eardrum or forehead. People of all ages can use the forehead mode, but the eardrum mode is suitable only for those older than three months.
The thermometer has a special ergonomic design for comfortable handling. It is portable, lightweight and compact. The button and trigger are both designed for one hand operation.
