The Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner featured in the Travel Section of The Boston Globe


Taking a person’s temperature while on the go can be tricky, especially with fussy, squirmy, or sleeping subjects. Watertown-based Exergen has released the Smart Glow TemporalScanner, an infrared thermometer that lets you take a temperature by gently sweeping it across a person’s forehead, capturing heat emitted by the temporal artery. It’s quiet, easy to use, and noninvasive. The thermometer has an easy-to-read backlighted display, remembers the last eight temperature readings, and is available at retailers such as Walmart, Target, Rite Aid, and Toys ‘R’ Us. $49.99.  800-422-3006,
