I recently had the opportunity to receive and sample the Temple Touch Thermometer. This is a thermometer which is new to North America. There are two variations of this thermometer, the Premium Temple Touch and the Mini Temple Touch. The Premium has a suggested retail price of $29.99 and the mini’s suggested retail price is $9.94. The Premium may be found at Walgreens stores and the Mini at Wal-Mart stores, nationwide.
The mini temple touch is a non-invasive device that uses groundbreaking technology to accurately measure temperature on the temple in just six seconds, and is now being sold at Wal-Mart stores under the ReliOn brand for $9.94. There really aren’t that many differences between the premium and the mini version. The biggest to speak of is that the Premium can take the temperature on the forehead or the underarm and the Premium also has a room temperature display.
As I am sure most of you are aware, we really haven’t seen the worst of the cold and flu season yet. And unfortunately, that also includes the Swine Flu this year. During this time of year when we are tired from shopping and working and attending holiday parties, it is very easy for our bodies to be susceptible to germs. And, that doesn’t include all those family and friends you will see over the holidays who don’t mind sharing their cold and/or flu with other family members. It’s not so bad when we as adults become ill, but we all know how hard it is on the smallest members of our families. Infants and toddlers can be really uncomfortable when they are sick and most times can’t communicate their feelings or needs.
The Mini Temple Touch is perfect, because it’s small enough to fit into a purse or diaper bag and use at a moment’s notice. You can use it when the child is asleep and you never have to wake them, since it used on the temple and not in the ear of mouth like traditional thermometers. It’s also great that it can be found at store that almost every city has, Wal-Mart, and for such a pocket friendly price of $9.94. I would recommend you pick one of these up and add it to your bag so you will be on the ready. It’s not just for children; it may be used on anyone who might be a difficult patient (read husbands).
In the near future the product will also be available for purchase on the Temple Touch website. If you would like to find out more background information on the products they offer, you may visit their website for further details.
