Date:12/12/2013

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., Dec. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Braun ThermoScan Ear Thermometer, the #1 thermometer among pediatricians and moms, now has a new family member arriving this fall: the Braun Forehead Thermometer. The Braun Forehead Thermometer is the latest innovation from the brand, which has been the longstanding gold standard in thermometry. Combining clinically proven accuracy and speed for reliable, non-invasive measurements in just seconds, the Braun Forehead Thermometer is a "must-have" tool for every family, baby registry, diaper bag and medicine cabinet.

Ideal for use with infants, kids, and adults, the Braun Forehead Thermometer is gentle enough to be used on a sleeping baby. The thermometer features a lightweight, ergonomic, and highly-intuitive design, providing a step-by-step on-product usage guide and user-facing digital temperature readouts on a large, backlit screen. Further removing the confusion, stress and struggle from temperature taking, the thermometer's fever guidance system indicates the severity of each reading with a green, yellow or red light, helping parents easily decipher and monitor the status of their child's temperature. Fever is often the first sign of illness and when someone's most contagious, and having a safe, trustworthy thermometer on-hand can help provide peace of mind.

The Braun Forehead Thermometer is designed to measure the temperature of the skin above the temporal artery, a major artery of the head that offers constant blood flow to the heart. To use the Braun Forehead Thermometer, simply turn on the device by pressing the power button, place the thermometer just above the eyebrow, press the "temperature" button, and slowly swipe the thermometer against the skin down to the temple and back. When the device beeps, the reading will appear in large, easy-to-read numbers.

The Braun Forehead Thermometer's built-in infrared technology takes multiple readings during each forehead swipe, processing the readings using a unique algorithm for an accurate measurement. The thermometer automatically converts the final reading to the oral temperature equivalent, which is important when communicating with pediatricians and would normally be obtained through a more invasive under-the-tongue thermometer.  

The Braun Forehead Thermometer has a suggested retail price of $49.99, is backed by a three-year limited warranty, and is available at most mass and drug retailers. For more information, visit braunthermometers.com.
