Thermometers

Buy a digital thermometer from the Access Health team to check temperatures in a safe, precise, and non-contact manner. Access Health stocks a range of thermometers, including a variety of non-contact thermometers for patient comfort and cross-infection prevention.

As one of the first signs of infection and virus, including COVID-19, it’s essential to quickly and accurately identify individuals with a fever. Access Health is the nation’s trusted supplier of general and specialised medical supplies.

We have supplied highly accurate infrared thermometers to healthcare practitioners, hospitals, clinics, and other medical environments, and we are proud to provide the same precise non-contact thermometers to the general public. This ensures safe and accurate temperature checking in all settings.

As well as thermometers, we can provide other medical measurement equipment, including scales & BMI diagnostic equipment, and x-ray viewers. Take a look below to find the right thermometer for you, or explore our Evaluation & Measurement range in its entirety.

Forehead Thermometers and COVID-19 – How Does a Thermometer Help?

COVID-19 affects people in different ways, but some of the most common symptoms are a dry cough, a sore throat, and a fever. Among these, the easiest symptom to independently verify is a fever.

A normal body temperature ranges from 36.5°C to 37.5°C, and anything above this can be considered a fever. A non-contact forehead thermometer can instantly and accurately confirm a fever without having to make skin or body contact with the patient.

COVID-19 is highly infectious, and non-contact temperature checking greatly reduces the risk of person-to-person transmission and cross-contamination between individuals. In this way, non-contact thermometers serve a dual role in the fight against COVID-19. They can accurately identify a fever – one of the most common coronavirus symptoms – and they help to prevent further transmission of the virus.

How Does a Non-Contact Digital Thermometer Work?

All people emit a form of thermal energy that can be detected and used to take a temperature. A non-contact digital thermometer uses infrared technology to accurately detect human temperature without physical touch.

The infrared thermometers in the Access Health range have been specifically designed to block out interference from the surrounding environment and detect only your body temperature. The result is fast and accurate temperature checking and the easiest, safest way to detect a fever.

How Do I Check My Temperature with a Non-Contact Thermometer from Access Health?

Our non-contact infrared thermometers are designed to be accurate and easy to use. Our thermometers fit comfortably in one hand and utilise a one-button measurement system. They also have a large, backlit LCD screen where the temperature is displayed making it easy to read at all times of the day or night.

To check someone’s temperature using a digital thermometer, follow these steps:

  • Stand approximately 3cm away from the patient (up to 8cm to greatly reduce the risk of transmission)
  • Point the thermometer at the patient’s forehead, ensuring it is switched on
  • Press the button to measure temperature. Measurement time is approximately one second
  • Check the LCD screen to see the results

Always follow the instructions provided with your specific forehead thermometer to ensure you are using it correctly.

How Do the Features of a Digital Thermometer Help Stop the Spread of Coronavirus?

Our digital thermometers have a range of features that are useful in stopping the spread of coronavirus. These include:

  • Temperature checking with no skin or body contact
  • Measure temperatures from up to 8cm away to reduce the risk of transmission
  • Accurately measure temperature within 0.3 degrees
  • Take temperature instantly to minimise time around the patient
  • No additional covers or accessories that would require disinfecting

Other useful features of our digital forehead thermometers include:

  • Waterproof and anti-shock
  • Battery saving and auto switch-off features
  • Celsius and Fahrenheit readings
  • Designed specifically for body temperature
  • Easy to use and read

What Are the Drawbacks of Infrared Thermometers for Coronavirus Detection?

In terms of temperature checking, there are no drawbacks to non-contact digital thermometers. However, it is important to remain alert to coronavirus symptoms even if you don’t have a fever.

COVID-19 may present without a fever and the use of drugs such as paracetamol can also reduce a fever. As well as this, a fever can also be the sign of a range of other infections, viruses, or conditions.

As well as temperature checking, it is important to maintain physical distance, continue with good hand hygiene and cough/sneeze etiquette, and to monitor for other symptoms of coronavirus.

Are Non-Contact Infrared Thermomotors Accurate?

Yes. The non-contact infrared thermometers available from Access Health can measure your temperature accurately within 0.3 degrees. They are designed to block out interference from surrounding environments to ensure high accuracy, and they have been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) of Australia.

Where Should Australians Use Non-Contact Thermometers to Fight COVID-19 Infection?

Non-contact thermometers are useful in all environments where temperature checking and screening is recommended. This includes before entering a workplace, restaurant or café, for at-home care, and for healthcare environments such as hospitals, medical clinics, and aged care settings.

As of 6:00 pm on Sunday, August 3, Victoria entered into a “State of Disaster” for at least one month, while much of the state faces at least 6 weeks of “Stage 4” restrictions. During this time, many settings will be required to undertake additional temperature checking, while individuals remain encouraged to watch for symptoms of COVID-19 and get tested if symptoms develop.

Elsewhere around the country, temperature checking remains a vital step in identifying coronavirus, as well as a range of other sicknesses and viruses.

Wherever you are around the country, Access Health can help. We ship thermometers to workplaces, medical practices, and individuals across Australia. Shop now for the digital thermometers you need.
