ADC Adtemp thermometers are designed to measure body temperature quickly and accurately. The Temple Touch thermometer differs from traditional thermometers in that it is placed on the forehead rather than held under the tongue. This allows you to take a reading while the person is either awake or asleep, making it ideal to use on children or the elderly. If you choose to use a traditional thermometer, ADC Adtemp makes plastic probe covers that reduce the risk of cross-contamination.
ADC Advantage is a brand of digital blood pressure monitors that are easy to use at home.
