They offer many advantages over more traditional methods of determining a patient’s body temperature:
- highly accurate temperature measurement
- fast, safe, and comfortable for the patient
- quick and easy to use for both doctors and nurses and at-home users
- low costs, resulting in an average payback period for the TAT-5000 and TAT-2000 of less than 1 year
- the TAT-5000 is very durable and can be used without throw-away sensor caps to avoid unnecessary waste and costs
- due to its industrial design, the TAT-5000 is covered by a Lifetime Guarantee
- the housing of the thermometer is resistant to aggressive disinfectants
- the technology on which these thermometers are based are supported by more than 85 peer-reviewed and published clinical studies
- the TAT-2000C offers at-home users the same accuracy, speed, and reliability as the TAT-5000 and TAT-2000 for use in hospitals – at a very attractive retail price
“Measuring the core body temperature is a crucial first step in the treatment of a patient. That means that both hospitals and at-home users need a fast and very accurate thermometer”, says Dr. Frank Pompei, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Exergen Corp. “With 25 years in the medical business, Earth Line Co.
