Innovative dual technology
The first ever thermometer with the convenience of two clinically proven options to take temperature – completely non-invasive no touch or traditional forehead touch.
Get the same professional accuracy whether touching your child’s forehead or measuring up to 5cm away.
Quick & easy readings
The Braun Touchless + forehead takes measurements in under 2 seconds, making it one of the fastest ways to measure temperature.
The option of ‘Touchless’ mode also makes it perfect for distressed sick children, squirmy toddlers and small babies who may find it difficult to tolerate other, more invasive methods.
Patented satellite sensor
Braun Touchless + forehead thermometer is a very accurate way to measure temperature – even without skin contact.
The thermometer measures infrared energy radiated from the skin at the centre of the forehead. This energy is ‘captured’ through the thermometer’s lens. Braun uses breakthrough technology with a lens shaped like a satellite, in order to capture twice as much radiated body heat compared to traditional forehead thermometers.
Large, colour coded display
Braun makes fever monitoring simple to understand, with a large, colour-changing display (like a ‘traffic light’) in background of the digital temperature reading.
Green: suggests no fever
Yellow: suggests moderate fever
Red: signals high fever
The thermometer also signals with different “beeps” for different temperatures - a single 2 second beep after measurement if the temperature is in the acceptably low range, or with a series of 10 short beeps if it is moderate or high.
This function provides easy visual and audio cues to help users interpret fever status - particularly handy for tired or stressed parents or those who can’t remember the indications for a fever.
User guidance system
How a thermometer is positioned is vital to the accuracy of its results. Braun’s unique on-screen positioning system confirms proper distance for taking temperature and a gentle guidance light directs you to aim accurately.
The Touchless + forehead features elegant, sophisticated design with an ergonomic and comfortable handle, large buttons and easy-to-read LCD screen.
Safe & hygienic
The thermometer is safe and hygienic to use on babies, children and adults. As a non-invasive instrument, does not require probe covers.
What is fever?
Fever is a defence mechanism the body uses to fight infections, and is therefore frequently associated with childhood illnesses. A body temperature that is consistently above the normal temperature range is called a fever.
What is normal body temperature?
Normal body temperature is unique to each individual and it ranges from 34.8 C to 38.0 C, depending on the body site where the temperature is taken.
This normal range is influenced by many factors such as physical activity, but it also varies throughout the day. The normal temperature range tends to decrease with age. To define your and your family members normal temperature, measure temperature several times throughout a day when you and your family are healthy. These temperatures can be then compared to readings in case of suspected fever.

Tips for taking temperature
- For best results the patient should be inside, away from direct sunlight for at least 30 minutes before taking temperature.
- Remove any hair from forehead before measuring temperature.
- Clean any sweat or dirt away from the forehead to improve accuracy.
- Keep the patient’s head still – it can help to have them look at a set point in the near distance.
- Hold the thermometer steady while taking temperature – no need to ‘swipe’.
