Guardian Mushroom / Water temperature indicat

Guardian Mushroom
Guardian Mushroom

Most diabetic patients are accompanied by peripheral neuropathy and feel dull to temperature, so they are easily scalded during bathing or foot bathing. Attach the "Guardian Mushroom" to the inside of the bathtub or footbath, squeeze the switches on both sides to flash yellow to turn on, and add water to cover it. If the water temperature is in the appropriate temperature range (37 to 40 degrees Celsius), it will flash green, and if the water temperature is too high or too low, it will flash red. In this way, it helps users maintain the water temperature within the appropriate range so as to avoid them being scalded by hot water.
