Exergen Temporal Scanner - GIVEAWAY

Posted by Jeri Maxedon 2009-05-20
So none of us like when our children get sick (or even God forbid, the poorly "can't do anything for himself when he's sick" husband). The worst part for me though is taking any of their temperatures. I can never get my hands on a thermometer that works and when I do my kids always fight me to do it properly.

  • I have been through the rectal thermometers and let's face it, those aren't a pleasant experience for any parties involved.
  • I have been through the ear thermometers and when an earache is present, you can FORGET getting a temperature with this method.
  • I have been through the underarm method and to be honest, my math skills during a high pressure moment of concentration are minimal, so having to add the .9 degrees (or whatever it is) is completely ridiculous. (and the pediatricians hate this one...lol)
And my goodness, having to locate all the plastic covers...don't EVEN get me started!

So when I was asked to review the new Exergen Temporal Scanner, I was a bit skeptical at first, but then thought, "What the heck...I'm sure I've used worse...so, what can it hurt?"

"The TemporalScanner Thermometer is a totally non-invasive system with advanced infrared technology providing maximum ease of use with quick, consistently accurate measurements. Advanced, patented technology measures temperatures with a gentle stroke across the forehead.The TemporalScanner Thermometer has been clinically tested for accuracy compared to rectal thermometers and temperature sensors inserted in the heart during course of patient treatment and accepted for use in major hospitals, making it the ideal thermometer for use with newborns, infants, children or adults." - Exergen.com

Check out this great video of author & parenting expert Donna Corwin demonstrating and recommending the Exergen Temporal Scanner during her national media tour.

So....the verdict...

Finally! There is a super easy method to taking an accurate temperature! I love this product! I haven't had an opportunity to use it during a "sick" moment (thank goodness!), but I know that when the time comes, I will definitely be prepared to focus on taking care of my sick babies instead of worrying about the stress of fighting for an accurate temperature. It was also really easy to store and clean. This would make a great gift idea for any new parent.

They are a bit expensive at a retail price of 59.99, but for a limited time they are offering a $5.00 mail-in-rebate available HERE. You can purchase an Exergen Temporal Scanner at the following locations: Walgreens, Walmart, Babies R Us and several other local and online locations.

  14. My son has had a stomach bug all week, and we keep having to wrestle him and pin him down in order to take his temperature. I'm 9 months pregnant, so that's been tough to do! So I could have used this this week, for sure!

  30. I could have used this when my daughter had a rash the other day! It was a really warm day and it was really difficult to tell if she had a fever with a rash (emergency) or just a rash (new detergent). Thankfully it was the latter, but still - I'd love to try this! Thanks for the giveaway!

  38. How about the last time I took a newborns temp rectally and got explosive yellow newborn poop all over me? Not that I mind baby poop all that much. After 3 babies, you kind of get used to it.

  59. mike Says:
  60. Both of my kids have been sick off and on for the last three weeks. They HATE having to sit there with a thermometer in their armpits, and make it very hard for us to get an accurate temperature. This would make it a breeze!

  61. Brandy Says:
  62. I could've definitely used this a few months ago when my daughter had a virus. She had a fever for over a week! Talk about a fun time! NOT! Thanks for the chance to win!

  63. Brandy Says:
  64. I subscribed. :)

  65. LN Says:
  66. This past week. My daughter was teething, but I wanted to make sure there was nothing else going on making her so cranky...so I tried taking her temperature under her arm and she wouldn't hear of it!

  68. MFJ:
    I could have used this for my first baby when she was running a fever and I was freaking out about using the rectal thermometer. I'm expecting my second now and don't want to go through that again.

  69. EJW Says:
  70. A couple weeks ago, my son spiked a really high fever (103+) and we wanted to keep a close eye on it, while letting him rest as much as possible. This would have been nice, to be able to take his temp while he slept or rested.

  71. Sara Says:
  72. We were camping this weekend and a friend of ours had a baby with us. He was acting strangely and we couldn't really tell if he had a fever or not - he just felt hot. But nobody had a thermometer or anything with us since we were camping. This would have been great to have with us because we could have had a better idea as to what was going on with him!

  73. Joshua's Dad Says:
  74. Whenever my son is sick it is so sad to have to wake him up and shove a thermometer you-know-where. This thing would be great!

  75. Naddez Says:
  76. When my children got really sick and running a high fever. This thermometer is a Godsent!

  91. i could have used this just these past few weeks. My son has been getting sick with ear infections that wont go away and now they think he has asthma!

  92. Just last week I could use this so bad. My daughter had fevers and it was just hard getting her to keep the thing under her tongue. I might still need to buy one of these.

  93. moushka Says:
  94. This past week would have been great for my daughter and I. We are both suffering from colds and running temps. It would have been nice to have something that was accurate.

  95. wigget Says:
  96. i could have used one recently when my son had a fever and i couldn't get a reliable, consistent reading from the ear thermometer

  97. Jayne Says:
  98. I could use one practically every day at preschool. I know the ear thermometer hurts the kids.

  99. I could have used one the last time my daughter was sick and my batteries in my thermometer went out

  113. I keep seeing these on blogs, and they sound so awesome! I definitely could've used this the last couple of times I had to take my daughter's temp. Just like you.. the bottom and the arm are way too unpredictable, uncomfortable, and too stressful to do!

  117. I could have used one most was when getting a rectal temp from my daughter, poop got sprayed on the wall. Could've done without that with a temporal scanner!

  119. My 5-month-old has been a little cranky lately and seems like she might have a temperature, I would definitely feel much better about pulling this out instead of having to take a rectal temp!
