IHealth Thermometer accuracy

To ensure accurate measurements, avoid the device or probe contacting any liquid or droplets. Avoid tiny particles (such as dust or powder) falling into the probe.

There is no absolute standard for human body temperature. Knowing your own normal body temperature range is important to accurately determine if you have a fever.

Temperature readings taken when a body is in a state of stable equilibrium is more accurate and useful as a reference.

Do not measure body temperature immediately after consuming a drug that raises body temperature. The temperature readings taken at this time will not be accurate.

Do not directly touch the probe with your fingers or blow on it. Measurements taken using a damaged or dirty IR probe may be inaccurate.

IHealth thermometer accuracy and precision

The infrared sensor technology used in this thermometer is one of the most accurate among infrared thermometers. Accuracy is within ±0.4℉ (see more in product specifications below). The infrared temperature measuring technology, in general, is less accurate than traditional contact thermometers.

It is normal for readings taken from continuous measurements to fluctuate within a small range. During continuous measurements, the subject’s body temperature may be transmitted to the thermometer, affecting measurement accuracy. We recommend taking only up to 3 continuous readings within a short period.

The probe (comprising a temperature sensor and a distance sensor) is the most intricate part of the thermometer and should be kept clean and intact to acquire accurate readings.

The infrared thermometer is an extremely precise instrument. Any improper maintenance, disassembly, or modification may lead to inaccuracies of the product measurements.

The thermometer is initially calibrated at the time of manufacture. If this thermometer is used according to the user of instruction, periodic re-adjustment is not required. If any time your question the accuracy of measurement, please contact the distributor or manufacturer.

It’s important to know each individual’s normal temperature when they are well. This is the only way to accurately diagnose a fever. To get reference value, we suggest taking multiple readings to determine the normal temperature.

This non-contact thermometer is extremely easy to use, non-invasive, extremely fast, easy to read, and very accurate. One of the least expensive options. So simple to operate with one button, and it vibrates to alert you the testing is done. Accurate and not expensive at all.

what type of thermometer is most accurate?

What type of thermometer is most accurate?

Rectal thermometers, which go into your rear end, are the most accurate, but they can be uncomfortable. Armpit, ear, and forehead thermometers aren’t as accurate. Most doctors think an oral thermometer, which you hold under your tongue, is best.
One of the best options is the digital infrared thermometer.
Don’t use an old glass thermometer. These contain mercury, which is dangerous.

How do I know if my thermometer is accurate?

Measuring temperature is tricky and you may be easily led astray. Measuring to an accuracy better than 0.1 degrees is fooling your self.
Temperature is probably the most commonly measured parameter. Others have covered various aspects. Resolutions greater than 0.1 degree Celsius are easy, but accuracies better than 0.1 degree Celsius is quite difficult and not normally achieved.
