Holly Springs, NC (PressExposure) September 10, 2009 -- The Temple Touch Thermometer, a new, non-invasive device that uses groundbreaking technology to accurately measure temperature on the forehead in just six seconds, is now available nationwide under the ReliOnÂ® brand at Wal-Mart.
Temple Touch delivers clinically accurate core body temperature in only six (6) seconds by gently touching the thermometer to the temple. Because of this sensitivity, Temple Touch is ideal for use on a sleeping infant or child, and is a preferable alternative to traditional mercury or digital stick thermometers. The groundbreaking product is available for $9.94 per unit â more than 50 percent less than other competing digital forehead thermometers.
âThe Temple Touch technology powering the new ReliOnÂ® forehead thermometer gives American families a more cost effective, accurate, quick and safe way to measure temperature,â said Medisim, Ltd. Vice President of U.S. Marketing and Sales, John Wilson. âWe are happy to be working with Wal-Mart stores across the U.S., which makes our innovative product easily available to everyone.â
The proprietary technology behind Temple Touchâs is so revolutionary that it has formed a new category in the thermometer marketâ conductive forehead thermometers. The product uses Medisimâs patented R.A.T.E.â¢ (Rapid, Accurate, Temperature Establishment) technology which provides accurate detection of the core body temperature using conduction. Other temple or forehead thermometers use infrared technology which can be influenced by ambient or skin temperature conditions leading to a loss of accuracy.
