Withings, part of Nokia, is 100% spot on when it claims that Thermo is “the world’s most advanced thermometer.” To label it as “just a thermometer” is taking away from its list of sophisticated features designed to keep a pulse on your family’s health. Whether it’s 16 infrared sensors providing highly accurate temperature measurement or its companion app recommending Ibuprofen dosage levels, Thermo is the most intuitive thermometer ever created.
Capable of taking a precise temperature without touching the skin and connecting to an app that allows users to track readings, Thermo would impress even your primary care doctor. Taking temperature readings from your temporal artery (which is considered the most accurate gauge), Thermo sweeps across your forehead taking over 4,000 measurements to find the hottest spot. Withings’ proprietary HotSpot Sensor Technology allows users to take your own temp in approximately two seconds.
Resembling a magic wand brushing past your forehead, Thermo is ideal for babies, children, and fussy adults who hate having their temperature taken. No more 3 a.m. wakeups sticking a thermometer in your infant’s bum just to get an accurate reading. Instead, Thermo “avoids any contact with saliva, earwax or other body fluids – making it the most sanitary way to take anyone’s temperature.” It even takes a lights-off reading as to not disturb your sleeping child while you check to see if her fever broke.
Thermo’s iOS/Android compatible companion app is where the real magic happens. Providing educational feedback based on age, fever history, and symptoms, Boston Children’s Hospital’s Thermia gives users a wealth of information including when it’s time to see a doctor. Whether it’s reminding you to take your baby’s temperature every 3-6 hours or alerting your smartphone of the 160 mg recommended Acetaminophen dosage, Thermo has a highly intuitive app. The “Seek Medical Advice” alert will look something like this on your phone: “Tom has a mild fever but also has symptoms that require medical attention. Seek medical advice immediately.”
Since you have an app that keeps track of fever history and a list of symptoms, you can pretty much hand your family medicine doctor the entire illness play-by-play. Thermo supports up to eight users so if the flu wipes out your entire family, you’ll have the perfect device to take everyone’s temp and at the same time, keep track of medications.
FDA-approved and connected by Bluetooth, Thermo is positioned to be the next best thing in home healthcare. It makes the temperature taking process seamless all while minimizing the passing of germs. From the wealth of information provided by Boston Children’s Hospital to its HotSpot Sensor Technology, Thermo is one of the smartest devices you can have in your home.
