As a mom to three I have gone through numerous thermometers. I have thrown away several typical "under the tongue" thermometers. It seems like after I used them three or four times they stopped working or they would not give accurate readings. I have used a temporal thermometer which worked great, for around two months when it completely stopped or wouldn't read.
I was excited to be chosen for the Braun Vox Box from Influenster. They sent me the Braun Thermoscan 5 IRT 6500 to try out and review.
My mom owns an ear thermometer and I wasn't a huge fan. It seemed like I could never insert the probe into the ear the exact same way twice in a row. I would always get different readings. I had written ear thermometers off completely.
My opinion has definitely changed with the Braun Thermoscan. Braun has solved my problem by adding a light at the top of the thermometer. The unique positioning system uses a light and beep to confirm proper positioning. No more guessing and no more inaccurate results. The exclusive pre-warmed tip technology is designed to minimize the cooling effect of the tip inside the ear canal, providing accurate measurements time after time.
The Braun Thermoscan is fast, gentle and easy to use. The box may have a baby on it but it is recommended for infants, children and adults. Unlike other ear thermometers, the Braun IRT 6500 has the display screen on the front and not the back of the thermometer.
The Braun IRT 6500 comes with a box 20 lens filters as well as one already attached. The lens filters pop off with an easy button and a new filter can be easily applied.
I unfortunately had the opportunity to try out this thermometer several times in the last few days. My oldest came down with a terrible cough and cold. I found that she had a temperature thanks the the Braun Thermoscan. If I were to use one of my inferior thermometers I am not sure I would have been able to catch her fever in time.
I am hoping that this thermometer lasts for a few years. It would be great to have an accurate thermometer for three little girls that get sick rather a lot during the winter.
