Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined forces with Medical Indicators, Incorporated (MII), to offer clinical thermometers to a larger consumer base. Established in 1988 and headquartered in Pennington, New Jersey, MII specializes in the manufacture of single-use and reusable clinical thermometers under the trade names of NexTemp and TraxIt. Their products are FDA registered Class I medical devices and hold many certifications, including conformation to ASTM E and EN requirements, and US Patents. Their thermometers meet or exceed the temperature measurement requirements of major clinical institutions. MII services medical, industrial and consumer markets worldwide, including hospitals, clinics, blood donation centers, dialysis centers, safety and first aid kits, and pandemic flu kits.
Accurate, economical and easy to use, MII’s thermometers and packaging are also latex-free. Their NexTemp disposable thermometers are an evolutionary leap beyond older generation disposable devices in that they do not require controlled storage conditions to operate properly. NexTemp can be left on counter tops, kept in warm automobiles and ambulances, carried in uniform pockets and used in all other environments regardless of temperature, yet they still remain highly accurate. One of the biggest reasons to switch from using the old tympanic, glass, electronic predictive or digital electronic thermometers to NexTemp disposable thermometers is enhanced infection control. Hospital-acquired infections have reached epidemic levels, with MRSA, VRE and multi-antibiotic resistant TB causing extended hospital stays for patients, costing an average of $40,000 per incident for a national level exceeding $4 billion. The potential cost saving for avoiding even one hospital acquired infection can easily pay for a whole year’s supply of NexTemp disposable thermometers.
MII’s TraxIt is a disposable, wearable thermometer which enables continuous axillary temperature readings for up to forty-eight hours, and is easily applied with its gentle medical tape backing. While most axillary temperatures are taken improperly because proper dwell times are usually not feasible, the TraxIt system allows continuous monitoring, providing a much more accurate reading. TraxIt is a great thermometer solution for pediatric patients, patients who are intubated or cannulated, and post-anesthesia and ICU patients. “We are delighted to offer these reusable and wearable thermometers from Medical Indicators to more healthcare consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “These innovative and state-of-the-art temperature taking devices will help control the spread of infection at any healthcare facility, and we know our professional customers will greatly appreciate how positively that affects their bottom line of cost efficiency.”
