aThermative / Medical thermometer


aThermative is a medical thermometer, designed to fit the three most common measuring locations. The different nozzles provide both caretaker and caregiver with a comfortable and hygienic experience. aThermative is suitable for both home use and professionals. The concept is based on interviews with an assistant nurse and a midwife, all the while taking technical, esthetical and hygienic aspects into consideration. aThermative is powered via induction. In order to get the basic component and the chosen nozzle coupled, magnets are placed in each part. To prevent dislocation, the two encountering surfaces are concave and convex, respectively.
