Prometheus Medescan Non-Contact Thermometer

The Prometheus Medescan Thermometer has been developed using the latest infrared technology. This technology allows the user to take a patient's temperature via the temporal artery (TA), at a distance of about 5cm from the forehead.

Precise, instantaneous and without physical contact, the Prometheus Medescan Thermometer limits the spread of germs, and is the most suitable system for no risk temperature measurement. Additionally, it has been demonstrated that this method of TS temperature measurement is more precise than tympanic thermometry (ear thermometer), and better tolerated than rectal thermometry (1).
