Lead With Us – Let’s Go Zero!

TriMedika are paving the way environmentally with a sustainable approach. No product consumables, less waste, less cost.

Millions of temperature readings are taken in hospitals each year. With traditional contact thermometers, a disposable plastic probe cover is required at every single reading. That’s why we’ve developed TRITEMP™; a non-contact leader in patient temperature measurement, designed to protect people and planet. TRITEMP™ is a medical grade non-contact thermometer that requires no single-use plastics.

TRITEMP™ directly improves the lives of patients, nurses, hospitals, healthcare and the planet.
