"We measured the temperature with each of these two thermometers on children and compared the reading to the rectal temperature, which is generally considered the standard. Essentially we found that by every measure that we used, the temporal artery thermometer was more accurate than the tympanic." ~ David Greenes, M.D., Boston Children's Hospital and Harvard Medical School: National Public Radio interview
"...may even prove to be better than taking rectal temperature." ~ Shari Roan, LA Times

I tested this thermometer again against a regular one from Walgreens and it was about 3 degrees under every single time!
It seems to be perfectly suited for left and right-handed people as we have one of each in our family. I also trust that it would be a good thermometer for older people to use because it is easy to read the screen and large enough to hold with a fist compared to some of the smaller thermometers requiring exceptional fine motor skills.
I like how the thermometer stores previous results, and how it beeps when it is ready to be scanned so you know you will get an accurate reading. It also has a backlight screen so if you are taking temperatures while baby is asleep, you won't have to turn on a light which is a big win for parents with a sick kid.
This thermometer has held up for nearly two years and I always feel confident in the temperature readings because Exergen is known for quality and accurate results. I highly recommend this thermometer to new parents, or really anyone who wants a fast and accurate temperature reading.
if the baby moves or is sleeping....they will probably wake up and not register the temperature perfectly.
I really like this for sick kids because it gives me a quick read without the waiting and fussing.
I love it for older kids and adults.
If you do it on littles, just make sure for swipe it 2-3 times for an accurate reading.
hopefully my swiping skills get better.
