The best thermometer is the one you can use comfortably and efficiently. That's why the thermometers below come from some of Australia's most reputable medical firms, and have been shown to provide reliable temperature readings in both children and adults.

As with any medical device, it’s important to understand how your thermometer works. Not all clinical thermometers function in the same way, and if used incorrectly, they might generate misleading temperature readings.

When someone is unwell, the last thing you want to do is rely on incorrect temperature readings and estimates. To assist you in making a more informed decision, here is an overview of the two most common medical thermometers and how to use them:

  • Digital thermometers: Digital thermometers function by employing heat sensors to estimate body temperature when the tip of the instrument is placed in the mouth, rectum, or armpit. It takes roughly 1 minute or less to take reliable temperature readings with a digital thermometer.

    Rectal temperature readings with a digital thermometer are reported to be the most accurate, especially for newborns and small children. You should not take rectal and oral temperature readings with the same thermometer. This may require the purchase of two thermometers, each of which should be clearly labeled.
  • Infrared forehead thermometers: Also known as non-contact thermometers, infrared forehead thermometers use sensors to measure body temperature from a short distance. They are widely used in places like airports, supermarkets, stadiums, and clinics as they do not require physical contact with the body and can be used to provide temperature readings for newborns, toddlers, and adults within seconds.

    The most accurate readings with infrared thermometers are those done by measuring the superficial temporal artery, located in the center of the forehead. Research indicates that temporal/infrared forehead thermometers may be as accurate as rectal thermometers for children when used in this manner.
