Digital Thermometers

Modern age digital thermometers produce quick and effective results when compared to the old mercury thermometers that posed a risk of exposure to mercury which is a toxic material. Digital thermometers are easily available at pharmacies and grocery stores and can be purchased over the counter. These devices come with a digital display that is clear and easy to read and interpret. They come with operating instructions that must be followed to produce accurate results. These thermometers are supplied with a sensor which touches a body part to determine the temperature. These thermometers can be used as:

  • Oral (in the mouth)
  • Rectal (in the rectum via anus)
  • Axillary (underside of the arm)

Make sure not to use the same thermometer for oral and rectal readings. Mark your device with a label that says oral or rectal. Wash the contact end of the device with cold water and mild soap. Wipe it dry and store for later use.

Infrared Thermometers

These are a good tool to measure the temperature for hard to reach areas like inside of the ear. These devices are mostly used for non-contact areas and can measure any range of temperatures from extremely high to extremely low. Try the Proactive Non Contact Infrared Thermometer for accurate results.


  • Non-contact design allows you to take extreme temperatures in a safe manner
  • Less time is taken in measurement (generally at the click of a button)
  • Accurate sensor placement through laser targeting

Basal Display Thermometer

These devices help in taking the most accurate readings and come with a digital recall memory. These thermometers produce a beep sound at very high temperatures. They are designed specifically for fertility charting. Try the Mabis DMI Basal Display Digital Thermometer with ovulation chart for natural family planning.
