It has absolutely no contact with the skin, is quick and is highly accurate; the ultimate combination for caretakers and parents. We've tested the new thermometers in our fast-paced environment, and each time they exceed our expectations, making our jobs more efficient and overall much easier. Children have no problem getting their temperature taken this way, especially since it takes less than a second to get a reading. Every hospital and household should have one of these!"
