New thermometer line ready to see action
American Scientific Resources, better known as ASR for short, has just announced that they will be rolling out a new range of affordable yet revolutionary, 5-in-1 non-contact thermometers that were specially designed to meet the needs of consumers and healthcare workers globally. Instead of the usual glass-and-mercury combination, these new non-contact thermometers are a snap to use, where it is able to provide instant temperature reading that is accurate as well, while making kids (and some adults) more comfortable since they no longer need to have something probing their orifice – whether it is from the top or at the bottom. Too bad for the little ones, as I clearly remember be paedatrician offering me lollipops after taking my temperature as a form of goodwill.
Some of the advantages for this new thermometer line will include :-
- Quick results, enabling immediate care
- Time saver for large groups
- Trusted clinical approval for accuracy
- The ability to take a trauma-free, non-invasive temperature
- Completely hygienic
- Back-lit display to be seen in dark when the patient is sleeping
Apart from that, the medical health industry will also learn to go green in some ways and save on costs, since there won’t be any more additional expenses associated with other thermometers such as probe covers and disinfection methods. You won’t find these thermometers out so soon as the consumer model will enter production in February next year, with full production capability exceeding 5,000 units per day. As for the new Kidz-Med 5-in-1 Non-Contact consumer model pictured above, it is expected to retail for $49.95 in the US while folks living outside of the US will have to fork out nearly $80.00 instead. Expect the thermometer to be widely available for purchase sometime in Q3 2010. While it is going to be manufactured in China, we hope that there will be sufficient quality control methods employed. What other non-invasive medical advances would you like to see happen in the future?
