The most innovative diabetic foot temperature assessment tool on the market. Measures the temperature at a specific point and at an accurate and determinate distance.
This Digital Thermometer is primarily designed for professional users, but can also be used by patients for home use, allowing for self-monitoring. Patients can alert their clinician if or when temperature changes take place.
Main Features and Benefits:
• For clinician and patient use
• Red guide light indicates correct measurement distance.
• Safe and hygienic for use with multiple patients – no sterilisation, disinfection or covers required (saving costs).
• Precise measurements in any environment – warm or cold.
• Can be used for both skin and open wound temperature measurements.
• Proven practice for predicting neuropathic foot ulceration.
• Accurate reading in less than 2 seconds.
• Internal memory stores last 10 measurements.
• Does not use laser radiations - is safe and harmless.
While other thermometers require disinfection after each use or need expensive hygienic and disposable covers, the Non-contact Digital Thermometer does not. This advantage can result in significant savings in clinics.
The Non-contact Digital Thermometer has a patented quick stabilisation system that makes the thermometer particularly suitable for hospital use, were room temperature can change from room to room, as well as in ambulances and in private practices.
For Diabetic Foot Assessments, it has been indicated in many studies that a rise in temperature on the surface of the skin, is the earliest warning of a potential foot ulceration/infection.
Used in diagnosing diabetic foot conditions, the thermometer will scan the temperature of the skin allowing comparative tests within a specific area of the foot or leg. It will also allow you to test both feet, storing the data each time. Moreover, it is possible to use the Non-Contact Digital Thermometer on open wounds because there is no contact at all.
Infection Control Friendly
The thermometer is a true non-invasive device, which does not come into contact with the patient. The product’s ergonomic design allows for easy wipe cleaning and complies with infection control regulations (Cleaning instructions supplied in pack).
For Home Use
The Digital Thermometer is primarily designed for professional users, but can also be used by patients for home use, allowing for self-monitoring. Patients can alert their clinician if or when temperature changes take place.
In this scenario, the patients are able to reduce activity levels to avoid more serious problems such as ulceration and access MDT care more quickly. The LCD display automatically shows room temperature when in stand-by. This model is provided with both the AQCS and the MQCS (Manual Quick Calibration System) technologies.
The device is powered by 4 x AAA batteries (included in the box) that have a life of 20,000 measurements or 3 years, according to use. The only necessary maintenance is to protect the gilt wave-guide with its protective dust-tight cap when the device is not in use.
