Here you have the list with best no-touch forehead thermometers, battery operated and easy to use best-selling items in this category on Amazon.
There are situations when avoiding physical contacts is necessary, yet detecting body temperature may be imperative for avoiding infections and transmitting diseases from the person who is doing the temperature measurement.
Luckily, technology is advancing in our times and there are plenty of such non-contact and very reliable infrared digital thermometers on the market. This industry has been developing for some time already and some models have been on the market in the past 5 years ago.
Note that there exist such remote reading thermometers for non-human use, in the industry, professional kitchens, etc. I want to point out that such non-human-use tools are sometimes listed on Amazon and other places in the same group as the thermometers for human use.
So do not get confused and make sure you are buying a non-contact medical infrared thermometer. You can usually observe the difference already by the colors. Those designed for human use are typically in bright and pleasant colors like the one shown in the top picture above, while the non-contact thermometers for non-human use are typically in some darker colors. More about these instruments in general you can see on Wikipedia.
So how does a forehead thermometer work?
These forehead thermometers are designed to detect the body temperature remotely, without touch. The measurement is typically from the distance of several centimeters say 3-6 cm or so. They rely on infrared light and they are usually designed in the shape of a gun. You have seen them being used on airports and similar places when authorities try to monitor the situation in the cases of viruses spreading in larger areas.
When you check those popular models on the market, they usually look very similar and perhaps even coming from the same factory. So most of the time there is no much difference in their accuracy and in the way how they operate. You will see the range 32-42 ℃ (89-107 ℉) and accuracy ± 0.3 ℃ (± 0.54 ℉). They work on batteries, usually two AAA-type.
However, you will see in the specifications that some are FDA & CE certified. So when you see such statements, note that CE mark means proof of the safety of the device usage. On the other hand, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration Agency) approval requires proof of the safety and efficacy of the device.
The top picture above shows a typical screen on such a device. So when you perform a measurement, you might have a green light for normal temperature, a red light for increased temperature, and alarm sounds as well. These tools can be used to measure the forehead temperature of babies and adults, and also to measure the temperature of pets.
Normally, they are very fast and you can have the temperature measured within one second, and it will be displayed in Celsius or/and Fahrenheit degrees.
So here is our list with the most popular no-touch forehead thermometers currently on the market. They are ordered by the popularity as of the moment of writing this text, but the situation on the market is changing all the time. So follow the links to read more about these and some other models that will show up.
