Medisim manufacturers the award-winning TempleTouch™ thermometers, which deliver clinically accurate core body temperature in only six (6) seconds by gently touching the thermometer to the temple. Because of this sensitivity, TempleTouch is ideal for use on a sleeping infant or child, and is a preferable alternative to traditional mercury or digital stick thermometers. The Mini TempleTouch thermometers can be found nationwide at Wal-Mart stores under the ReliOn® brand. The Premium TempleTouch is available under the Walgreens® brand nationwide.

The proprietary technology behind TempleTouch 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.
