Arc InstaTemp MD / Non-touch thermometer

Discipline: Product

Arc InstaTemp MD

Discipline: Product

Taking a temperature is so every day that often the importance of it as a medical diagnostic tool is over-looked. It’s forgotten that temperature reading and trend data can inform early medical action. Arc InstaTemp MD is a non-touch thermometer that measures core-body temperature, giving it a significant scientific advantage over traditional thermometers. The simplicity of the product and cleverness of our client’s technology is reflected in the design experience. In the context of medical care in Third World countries the use of a thermometer, not dependent on consumables for infection control becomes a lifesaving tool of significant importance.
