But along with the cold weather that is threatening to drive me insane, it's the runny noses and sneezes that come along with cold and flu season that need to end. As soon as I start to revel in the fact that no one has a fever or is coughing at all hours of the night, it seems to begin again. Someone make the cycle stop!
However, there has been a bright side to the sniffles this year thanks to Braun. Although they haven't cured us of our sicknesses, they have made life easier in our house and for parents everywhere with the new Braun No touch + forehead thermometer.
Talk about convenience! The new Braun No touch + forehead thermometer is the first ever thermometer to combine two clinically proven options to take a temperature – completely non-invasive no touch, or the traditional forehead touch. It offers the same professional accuracy in either mode and is proven clinically accurate for all ages!
Can this innovative device be any quicker and easier to use? Simply position the No touch + forehead thermometer between the eyebrows and EITHER hold on the forehead or up to two inches away from the forehead (the built-in accuracy sensor actually guides you to the right distance to take a reading). Press the temperature button and within two seconds, the large, color-coded screen will display the temperature.
Voilà! The Braun No touch + forehead thermometer is safe to use on all members of your family, but its non- invasive feature of taking accurate reading from even up to two inches away makes it even more perfect for taking the temperature of a sleeping child.
Plus, the large, color-coded screen allows for instant fever detection, day or night. A green screen indicates no fever is detected, yellow suggests a slightly elevated temperature, and red signals a possible high fever may be present.
Isn't it about time that we all were able to ease a tiny bit of worry by maximizing the ease and convenience of temperature taking?
