Braun ThermoScan 5 The ear thermometer doctors recommend the most*
Doctors and paediatricians always choose the right tools, especially when it comes to accurately taking a child's temperature and most health professionals choose Braun ThermoScan*. The ThermoScan 5 ear thermometer features Braun's patented pre-warmed tip to deliver professional accuracy. The tip on other thermometers can cool the area where the reading is taken, leading to a higher risk of inaccurate readings. The tip on the ThermoScan is warmed before use, to ensure accurate readings. The large screen and ergonomic design make it easy to use too. Disposable Braun certified lens filters help prevent the spread of the germs. While last reading recall helps you remember your child's last temperature, so you can carefully monitor any changes. Apart from the pre-warmed tip and last reading recall, the new Braun ThermoScan 5 has many other important features designed to help you.

Braun ThermoScan® ear thermometers. The right choice for your child.
If there's one essential item that must be reliable, accurate and easy for you to use, it's the thermometer. With the new Braun ThermoScan® 5 digital ear thermometer, taking your child's temperature has never been as simple or efficient.

Why measure in the ear?
The Braun ThermoScan® 5 measures the infrared heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue. Since the eardrum shares blood supply with the temperature control centre in the brain, the ear accurately reflects the core body temperature. When the temperature rises, this can be easily spotted in the ear.
The result: the ear is an excellent place to measure temperature.

Takes temperature gently in the ear
For a long time, a child's temperature was often taken in the bottom as this was considered the most reliable place to take temperature.

With the new Braun ThermoScan® 5 ear thermometer there is no longer any need to do this and go through the inconvenience of taking off their pyjamas and nappy. And upsetting them or causing your child stress.

Now, you can place the small soft tip of the Braun ThermoScan® 5 into your child's ear and take their temperature gently in just a few seconds. In addition, the disposable lens filters provide unsurpassed hygiene, meaning that the whole family can use the same thermometer.

Unique pre-warmed tip for professional accuracy
Unlike other thermometers, the new Braun ThermoScan® 7 features a pre-warmed tip that minimises the cooling effect that could result from putting a cool probe tip into a child's ear. The pre-warmed tip helps ensure incredible accuracy to a tenth of a degree every single time you take a temperature.

Thanks to its patented pre-warmed tip technology, doctors and paediatricians rely on the Braun range of ThermoScan® thermometers for professional accuracy. In fact, Braun ThermoScan® thermometers are used over 1.5 million times a day around the world**.

Temperature recording for better monitoring
When you've spent nights watching over your sick child it's not always easy to remember the various temperature readings. So Braun have taken this into account in developing the new Braun ThermoScan® 5.
It helps you to record and manage your child's temperature thanks to a special memory function. This records the last temperature reading so you can see whether it's going up and down - to help you decide what to do next.

Disposable lens filters for unsurpassed accuracy and hygiene
Babies and children can suffer from fever frequently throughout the year, and parents will usually take their child's temperature several times during each bout of fever, depending on how unwell the child feels.
It's therefore vital that the Braun ThermoScan® lens filter on the temperature sensor is replaced every single time a temperature reading is taken.
Braun disposable lens filters enable hygienic use without having to clean or disinfect the sensor and virtually eliminate contamination passing from one person to another. What's more, fitting a new Braun lens filter each time makes sure that dirt or ear wax don't build up and clog the filter membrane, which could lead to inaccurate temperature readings.

Only Braun lens filters fit properly and give accurate results
What's more, Braun lens filters are purpose designed to fit the Braun range and give total accuracy, unlike counterfeit products which stop the temperature sensor working properly. New Braun certified disposable lens filters are also BPA and latex free for safer use.

Look for the Braun logo on each lens filter to guarantee that you get the most accurate results and peace of mind.
