There are several different types of thermometers such as non-contact, ear and digital.
A non-contact thermometer or an infrared thermometer measures the temperature at the surface of the forehead by sensing infrared emission of the skin at the measured point. It is the best baby thermometer UK you can buy as it enables you to note the temperature of your baby easily and accurately.
An ear thermometer is designed to measure temperature by reading infrared radiation emanating from eardrum tissue. These thermometers have the ability to measure temperature without meeting the body. The thermometer can also give a close estimate of the temperature of the brain due to its proximity to the brain and accurately measures the temperature of the body. Faster than the regular thermometer, ear thermometers are mostly used to measure the temperature of small children.
A digital thermometer provides a more accurate and quick temperature reading. These thermometers use electronic heat sensors to record the body temperature and can be used in the mouth, ear or armpit. A digital thermometer is available in many shapes and sizes and is equipped with a sensor at the tip of the thermometer that touches the body part to read the temperature. Digital thermometers are appropriate for new-borns, infants, children and adults.
