Exergen Corporation’s patented TemporalScanner™ Thermometer was selected by nurses as the 2009 Most Valuable Product in the annual survey by Therapy Times, the only all-inclusive community Web site for therapeutic professionals in the healthcare industry. Hundreds of nurses voted for the TemporalScanner during four weeks of online balloting, from June 26 – July 17. The results were posted July 20.
“We developed the TemporalScanner with the nurse in mind. It’s a great validation of our efforts to be honored this way,” said Francesco Pompei, Ph.D. and Exergen CEO. “We do know that the TemporalScanner is used in half of hospitals and a third of pediatricians’ offices in the U.S.”
From hundreds of nominations, Therapy Times compiled a slate of products used in the therapeutic fields of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology/audiology, nutrition, respiratory therapy, musical therapy and nursing. Professionals in each therapeutic area selected the products they found most useful in day-to-day practice.
Exergen’s infrared temporal artery thermometer is the most accurate and least invasive product on the market and provides temperature readings in just two seconds. With a gentle stroke of the forehead the instrument captures the naturally emitted heat from the skin over the temporal artery.
