The Exergen TemporalScanner that is used in thousands of healthcare facilities and homes can now add another prime time television show to its resume. On recent episodes of USA Network’s hit series Royal Pains, the bestselling Exergen TemporalScanner was used by Dr. Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein). In one instance it was used to take the temperature of an adult delivery man and in the other it was used to detect a fever in a young boy.
“We are pleased to see the TemporalScanner making its way into popular culture, which is a reflection of the now wide acceptance of Exergen’s groundbreaking innovation in medical care,” said Dr. Francesco Pompei, Exergen CEO. “Temporal artery thermometers are fast, easy to use and non-invasive, enabling medical professionals to accurately assess patients while ensuring a comfortable overall experience.”
Exergen was featured in episodes of Royal Pains’ fourth season, including “Imperfect Storm” and “A Guesthouse Divided.” Based on the story of an E.R. doctor who finds himself relocated to the Hamptons taking care of the rich and famous, Royal Pains, starringMark Feuerstein and Paulo Costanzo, is one of the highest rated shows on cable.
Exergen markets two models of the TemporalScanner thermometer: a professional version for doctors’ offices and hospitals, and a consumer model sold in major retailers including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreen’s, Rite Aid, Costco, Sam’s Club, Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us, Kroger and BJ’s. More than one billion temperatures are taken each year with the TemporalScanner. It is used in thousands of hospitals, clinics, and pediatricians’ offices in the country, as well as in millions of homes. For the third year in a row it is the #1 selling retail thermometer.
The Exergen TemporalScanner’s performance is supported by more than 40 peer-reviewed published studies covering all ages from preterm infants to geriatrics and all care areas from hospitals to homes. For additional information, visit www.exergen.com
