Highly Accurate, Non-Invasive

TAT-5000 (for use by doctors and nurses in hospitals), TAT-2000 (a light-duty professional model for school nurses, nursing homes, etc), and TAT-2000C (for at-home use) are based on a very innovative infrared technology. They offer many advantages over more traditional methods of determining a patient’s body temperature: 


  • highly accurate temperature measurement
    • fast, safe and comfortable for the patient
    • quick and easy to use for both doctors and nurses and at-home users
    • low costs, resulting in an average payback period for the TAT-5000 and TAT-2000 of less than 1 year
    • the TAT-5000 is very durable and can be used without throw-away sensor caps to avoid unnecessary waste and costs; of course, caps are available if required
    • due to its industrial design the TAT-5000 is covered by a Lifetime Guarantee
    • the housing of the thermometer is resistant to aggressive disinfectants
    • the technology on which these thermometers are based are supported by more than 80 peer-reviewed and published clinical studies
    • the TAT-2000C offers at-home users the same accuracy, speed, and reliability as the TAT-5000 and TAT-2000 for use in hospitals – at a very attractive retail price

“Measuring the core body temperature is a crucial first step in the treatment of a patient. Especially now we are in the midst of a global pandemic. That means that both hospitals and at-home users need a fast and very accurate thermometer”, says Dr. Frank Pompei, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Exergen Corporation. “With a workforce of 34 highly educated professionals, Medical Wisdom Group is very well established in Taiwan.
