Pediatric Study Finds 21st Century Non-Contact Thermometer as Accurate as Conventional Thermometers
Date:7/24/2008

Revolutionary thermometer designed to take body temperature, for home and clinical use

WESTON, Fla., July 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --- Kidz-Med, Inc. (subsidiary of American Scientific Resources Inc. Pink Sheets: ASFX), United States distributor of the Thermofocus(R) 5-in-1 non-contact thermometer, is pleased to announce the results of a clinical study conducted by the Second Children's Clinic of the University of Milan, in Milan, Italy, which proves that the Thermofocus(R) measures body temperature in infants and children accurately and safely, and also produces results comparable with conventional thermometers.

The Thermofocus(R) non-contact infrared thermometer, which is designed to take a temperature reading in a second from the temporal artery on the forehead, is available online at Kidz-Med, Inc. (http://www.kidzmed.com).

The study compared the 21st Century thermometer, billed as the first at distance, clinical thermometer in the world

(http://www.kidzmed.com/ccp0-prodshow/01500.html), to commercially available infrared and digital thermometers, that take oral, rectal, ear, and armpit readings.

The study concludes (http://www.kidzmed.com/pdfs/Clinical%20Study_Minerva%20Pediatrica_2007.pdf ), "Measuring body temperature with a non-contact infrared radiation device is completely safe and provides correct, reliable measurement of body temperature at different body sites without skin contact. This last feature is particularly advantageous for ambulatories and emergency department services where modes of transmission of disease need to be strictly controlled."

CEO of American Scientific Resources, Dr. Christopher F. Tirotta is responsible for bringing the revolutionary device to the United States.

Dr. Tirotta says, "This scientific data validates the reasons why the general public can trust the Thermofocus thermometer as an accurate and safe way to take a child's temperature. By taking a temperature quickly, easily and effectively, this thermometer provides a trauma-free experience to the child and parent or caregiver alike."

The Thermofocus(R) 5-in-1 non-contact thermometer takes an accurate temperature in one second, and has multiple uses that include taking readings of food, bath water, room temperature and baby's bottle. It is recommended by doctors and pediatricians throughout the UK, Europe and Asia and has even been used by medical personnel in Asia during the SARS epidemic (See BBC article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/2986469.stm).

The Thermofocus can be seen on YouTube.com, and in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. It has also been profiled at Thingamababy.com, and AudioStocks.com.
