TraxIt® – Children’s Axillary Thermometer
Continuous Read, Single-Use Pediatric Thermometer
TraxIt® thermometers are meant to simplify the process of taking a child’s temperature. Instead of having to repeatedly take a child’s temperature, the TraxIt® adheres to the child’s underarm and continuously reads the child’s temperature for up to 48 hours. TraxIt®’s adhesive is a gentle, latex-free, waterproof, hypoallergenic medical tape that will not irritate a child’s healthy skin.

Axillary temperature readings are typically 0.5°F (0.3°C) lower than oral, and 1.0°F (0.6°C) lower than rectal. This difference is normal and expected.
TraxIt® uses a liquid crystal technology to provide accuracy. Each of the dots has its own unique formulation that fires at a specific temperature. When a dot fires, the color changes from green to black. The number of temperature dots that fire is dependent upon the patient’s temperature. The last black dot provides the accurate temperature reading.
