Clinically Validated Accuracy
The FORA FocusTemp IR42 has excelled in the clinical accuracy tests, which are specified by two characteristics: Clinical bias with its standard deviation, and the clinical repeatability.
- Clinical bias and standard deviation – When compared to the reference thermometer, FORA FocusTemp IR42 firmly complies with ASTM E1965-98 (2016) standard requirements, demonstrating a bias of 0.17 °C. The standard deviation of the clinical bias was 0.08 °C
- Repeatability test – It was conducted by taking three sequential temperature readings from each subject of the 120 test subjects. The pooled clinical repeatability of FORA FocusTemp is considered logically small, having R2 = 0.986.
