Contact-free

How simple is this to use? Just point the iHealth No-Touch Forehead Thermometer to get a quick body temperature. The temperature will show in seconds on the large, easy-to-read, LED digital display. It’s foolproof — and nurse-approved.

“I’m a registered nurse, and I take care of my elderly mother as well. I wanted something to easily screen those who enter Mom’s home. It was so simple,” wrote a five-star Amazon reviewer. “I took it out of the box, popped in the batteries that came with it, and I was using it in seconds. I’ve compared it to taking my temp at the hospital, and it’s as accurate as theirs. The reading is large and lights up, making it very easy to see.”

Effortless and sanitary

Thanks to its sleek design, this contactless thermometer feels intuitive. Just point it a few inches away from the center of someone’s forehead and push the center button. It’s great to use while a child is sleeping.

“No worrying about disinfecting the thermometer because it never touches the skin. Also the readout is large and easy to read in a dimly lit or dark room,” added a happy Amazon reviewer.

Bottom line

This iHealth No-Touch Forehead Thermometer is a good thing to keep on hand, and readings are even accurate enough for professional healthcare workers.

“I'm a family-practitioner PA for the past 38 years and cannot tolerate an incorrect temperature reading,” shared a five-star shopper. “This is right on compared to both a glass and digital thermometer. Takes only a second and even works with a moving target. Highly recommended for the medical professional and for home use, especially with little kids.”
