WATERTOWN, Mass., March 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Bump, a leading multiplatform and parenting brand, chose the Exergen TemporalScanner™ as the best pediatrician-recommended thermometer in its Best of Baby 2015 awards. The Bump editors reviewed hundreds of products to find baby and maternity gear that excel in design, safety, value, functionality, time-saving, problem solving or innovation. Exergen is the market leader and preferred choice of pediatricians and nurses in the United States, supported by more than 50 peer-reviewed published studies.
"One of our goals has always been to make moms' lives easier, while assuring them with scientific research that our thermometer gives them an accurate reading every time," Dr. Frank Pompei, CEO of Exergen Corporation. "We are honored to be recognized by The Bump for equipping moms with the same thermometry technology used in hospitals, clinics and pediatricians' offices across the country."
The Bump editors were impressed that Exergen is the brand that most doctors use in their own offices and that mothers use the TemporalScanner™ to avoid invasive ear, mouth or butt readings. They also bestowed the honor because the thermometer takes 1,000 readings per second and chooses the most accurate.
"First-time parents are tasked with making monumental decisions when choosing the best and safest products for their baby," said Rebecca Dolgin, editor in chief of TheBump.com. "Our annual Best of Baby awards have done all the work by reviewing and choosing the best of the best so parents can cut down on the guesswork and feel confident when deciding which products and gear to buy or add to their baby registry."
