Thermoval® Standard digital thermometer

Pen-type thermometer

The Thermoval® Standard digital thermometer is a pen-type thermometer allowing to measure the temperature either by the mouth, under the armpit or by the rectum. It gives you fast results within 40-90 seconds depending on the measuring site.

Thermoval® standard has a beeper signal on the measurement completion, a fever alarm if the temperature exceeds 37.8℃. It displays the most recent value on the screen and automatically switches-off and has a protective case for better hygienic storage.

The measuring tip is waterproof and requires cleaning and disinfecting with an alcohol swab.

Thermoval® standard is Clinically Validated for high accuracy in accordance with the European Standard for Medical Thermometers.

The 3 measurement sites

Thermoval® Standard is a digital thermometer with a sensor at its tip to measure by direct contact the local temperature from the rectum, the mouth or the armpit areas that is reflecting from the core body temperature.


In the rectum (rectal)

This measurement site is considered to be accurate from a medical point of view because it comes close to the core body temperature. The thermometer tip is inserted carefully into the rectum to a maximum of 2 cm. The usual measurement time is approximately 40 to 60 seconds.

In the mouth (oral)

There are different heat zones in the mouth. As a general rule, the oral temperature is 0.3 °C to 0.8 °C lower than the rectal temperature. To ensure that the reading is as accurate as possible, place the thermometer tip under the tongue to the left or right of the root of the tongue. The sensor must have constant contact with the tissue during the reading and be placed under the tongue in one of the two heat pockets at the back. Keep the mouth closed during the reading and breathe evenly through the nose. Do not eat or drink anything before the measurement. The usual measurement time is approximately 60 seconds.

Under the arm (axillary)

Placing the thermometer in the armpit provides a measurement of surface skin temperature that can fluctuate by around 0.5 °C to 1.5 °C from rectal (internal) temperature readings in adults. The usual measurement time for this method is approximately 90 seconds. It should be noted, however, that an exact reading cannot be obtained if, for example, the armpits have been allowed to cool. If this is the case, we recommend extending the measurement time to 5 minutes in order to obtain the most precise possible reading.

Clinical Validation

For high accuracy, Thermoval® Standard complies with the EU Medical Devices Directive and the European Standard for Medical Thermometers EN 12470.

Choosing the right thermometer for your family

Buying a thermometer for the whole family is often a long-term purchase. So, it makes sense to look for a model that not only gives accurate readings but is also quick and convenient to use.
Why do children suffer from fever more often than adults?
Fever is one of the most commonly presenting complaints in childhood. The most likely cause is infection. Because of an inexperienced immune system, children typically get higher and quicker fever than adults. The immune system of newborn babies is relatively immature, and has to develop over time through exposure to various pathogens such as bacteria, viruses or fungi. But the immune system also assumes other roles, including tissue repair and wound healing. The activity of the immune system is often accompanied by a rise in body temperature.
Why is fever important for people who suffer from an illness?

Fever is a common response to infection in the body. It can help fight infection. The term refers to an elevated temperature of the body that is substantially beyond the normal range.

The presence of a fever is usually related to stimulation of the body's immune response. Fever can support the function of the immune system against infectious agents such as viruses and bacteria, and can make it difficult for temperature-sensitive viruses and bacteria to reproduce.

What are the typical symptoms of fever?
  • Increased body temperature
  • Headache
  • Tiredness
  • Muscle and joint aches
  • Chills, shaking and shivering
  • Sweating
  • Flushed skin and warm forehead
  • Increased heart rate
  • Loss of appetite
  • Dizziness and general weakness
