Temple Touch Mini Thermometer Wins iParenting Media Award

The fastest-growing favorite thermometer wins in the baby care category


Holly Springs, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/24/2009 -- Medisim, Ltd., a global leader in diagnostic tools for temperature measurement and other devices that help medical professionals meet contemporary clinical challenges, is pleased to announce that the Temple Touch Mini thermometer is a recipient of a 2009 iParenting Media Awards for excellent products in the Baby Care category.

iParenting Media Awards are a property of Disney Interactive Media Group and are the leading resource for high-quality products that help parents raise their families. In order to receive an award, the products must undergo a vigorous evaluation process by outside reviewers and the iParenting Media Awards Executive Committee. The three outside reviewers are a licensed childcare facility, an expert and a parent. Each judge fills out an extensive survey and provides feedback to the company regarding the product.

“We are honored that the Temple Touch Mini was selected as an iParenting Media award winner,” said John Wilson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Medisim USA. “This simply reinforces the reasons why more parents are switching to the Temple Touch product over other types of thermometers - Temple Touch is economical, easy to use, fast and gentle enough to use even on a sleeping child.”

Temple Touch thermometers deliver clinically accurate core body temperature in only six (6) seconds by gently touching the thermometer to the temple. Because of this sensitivity, Temple Touch is ideal for use on a sleeping infant or child, and is a preferable alternative to traditional mercury or digital stick thermometers. The groundbreaking product is available for around $12 per unit – more than 50 percent less than other competing forehead thermometers.
The proprietary technology behind Temple Touch products is so revolutionary that it has formed a new category in the thermometer market– conductive forehead thermometers. The product uses Medisim’s patented R.A.T.E.™ (Rapid, Accurate, Temperature Establishment) technology which provides accurate detection of the core body temperature using conduction. Other temple or forehead thermometers use infrared technology which can be influenced by ambient or skin temperature conditions leading to a loss of accuracy.

Temple Touch Mini thermometers can be found nationwide at Wal-Mart stores under the ReliOn® brand. For more information on the Temple Touch thermometer, please visit or
