Exergen Temporal Scanner Review



We are in flu and cold season and if we haven’t all had a bout of the sniffles or flu already, we are dodging it with our lives. Having a house full of sick kids, husbands, or trying to care for your family if you are sick is a nightmare, but not having the right equipment to care for you and your family just makes things more complicated. I will confess, up until this past month I could probably count the number of times I had taken my daughter’s temperature….on one hand. Getting an infant or toddler to sit still for a traditional thermometer is no an easy task, and if she only felt warm to the touch I didn’t even bother. 


I came across the Exergen Temporal Scanner and had to have it. It can be used for old and young and it takes your temperature in a matter of seconds, not minutes. It is easy to use, shuts off automatically after use (no having to replace the batteries when your little one has a fever and you discover the batteries are dead).  What can I say, I am in love. Just place the thermometer flat on the center of the forehead, press the button, slide it to the temple/hairline and release the button. It’s a cinch. 


The Exergen Temporal Scanner is available at major retailers, including Walmart and Walgreens, and is well worth the price. If you want a user-friendly, accurate thermometer I highly recommend this one. Are you trying to conceive? Another incentive for grabbing this thermometer is to use it for tracking your temperature to guesstimate your ovulation date 😉

  11. I learned that the best place to take your temperature is at your heart! And this device is almost as good using the major artery from the heart.

    You have to make sure that there is no sweat or hair underneath the thermometer in order to get the most accurate reading!

  21. I love this!
    Great to know that temperature taking doesnt have to be invasive. Just hold it over a major artery not abstructed my hair, clothing or sweat, and get it done fast.
    My kids would love this too.

  96. I thought the way it measured temp was interesting:
    The TemporalScanner has patented software, providing arterial heat balance. This unique process determines temperature by accurately measuring the balance between the tissues warming from arterial blood and tissues cooling (warming) caused by heat loss (gain) to the environment.
