Measuring Body Temperature
Classic and digital thermometers are used every day in medical practices to measure body temperature. Depending on the area of application, different models and measuring methods are used. For example, thermometers with a measuring tip are ideal for oral temperature determination, while infrared thermometers can be used for measurement on the forehead or ear.
Classic Thermometers for Precise Measurements
Classic thermometers work according to the principle of expansion: depending on the body temperature, the liquid in the glass capillaries expands. At Praxisdienst you will find the Geratherm classic, which is particularly non-toxic and environmentally friendly due to the Galinstan measuring fluid and the fact that it does not use batteries.
Digital Thermometers for Comfortable Measurement
Digital thermometers are characterised by a short measuring time and an exact and accurate display of the measured temperature. An acoustic signal indicates that the measurement is complete, making them particularly convenient to use.
In our online shop we stock the Beurer FT 13, which is a popular digital device for axial, oral or rectal temperature determination. This digital thermometer has a flexible tip to enable comfortable measurement. It can be handled intuitively via a one-button operation and warns the user with a visual and acoustic fever alarm if it detects a temperature of 37.8 °C or above.
For measuring the temperature of babies and toddlers we offer the Thermoval kids flex. This digital thermometer also has a flexible measuring tip and a temperature measuring range of 32°C - 43.9 °C. Compatible protective covers are available to ensure extra hygienic use. The Beurer Thermometer is equally popular for measuring the temperature of small children. In addition to a flexible measuring tip and simple operation the digital thermometer is equipped with appealing animal motifs such as frog, dog or monkey.
The SureTemp Plus 690 is a particularly high-quality digital thermometer with a short measuring time. It is a convenient hand-held thermometer with a probe for use in oral, axillary and rectal temperature measurement in all ages: adults, children and newborns.
Ear Thermometers & Forehead Thermometers for your Practice
Infrared thermometers are usually used to determine the temperature from forehead or ear measurements. The non-invasive infrared measuring technique enables temperature to be determined in just a few seconds. This makes infrared thermometers very popular for regular checks on patients with fever.
If you need a contact-free forehead thermometer to measure fever quickly, we recommend the Geratherm non-contact Infrared Thermometer. This name brand infrared forehead thermometer is easy to use and stores the last 30 readings. It can also be used to measure the temperature of surfaces, such as checking the temperature of baby feeding bottles or the ambient temperature.
The Infrared Wall Thermometer is recommended for frequent measurements. This digital thermometer enables fast, non-contact measurement in just 1 second, and displays the measured value via a large LED display. The infrared thermometer can be operated either via rechargeable battery or mains adapter.
