Everything changes these days, evolving into forms that we would have never thought possible. Innovations have spread their spider web-like influence over every segment of human activity, whether we are talking fashion here, medicine, science and education.
In what medicine is concerned, the evolution is more than visible, but home medicine has impressed more, through its “expansion”. More and more advanced tools that help people maintain their health have been launched recently and the Vicks Forehead Thermometer is a great example of such a device.
Still trying to figure out what’s the reading in the conventional thermometers? Well all the worries are gone now? The new Vicks Forehead Thermometer is the new thermometer that allows parents to easily monitor their kids’ temperature with out any hassles.
The Forehead Thermometer has been designed by Scott Henderson, an American designer who heads the New York based design studio Scott Henderson Inc. and is also Principal and Co-Founder of MINT where he designs, manufacturers and distributes home accessory objects to over 350 retailers and museums throughout the world, for Vicks, a sub-division of the international company Procter & Gamble.
The thermometer sensor scans the temperature from the temple to forehead and by using the heat from the temporal artery and assesses the temperature quicker than the normal conventional thermometers. The reading is in color coded manner with green background indicating normal temperature while the red background indicating fever. Simple, nice and easy way to measure temperature.
If you are still not convinced about its performances, you should learn then that the Vicks Forehead Digital Thermometer has already won the 2008 IDEA Award, given by the Industrial Designer's Society of America and sponsored by Business Week Magazine.
