The instrument as the name, Forehead Thermometer indicates, is held lightly against a person's forehead until it "beeps" indicating that reading has been taken. The current temperature is displayed on an LED screen. A nice feature in these digital devices is that the previous recorded temperature is stored, so you can see if there has been any change.
While the Forehead Thermometer can be used on anyone - it is especially useful for families with babies or small children who traditionally have a hard time staying still for older methods of taking a temperature.
