Originally an idea from family doctors to help parents quickly identify the signs
and symptoms of meningitis and septicaemia, the Arc Meningitis Early Alert Pack was
redesigned in 2012 to provide parents with a simple device to reliably replicate
the tumbler test in confidence together with a forehead thermometer and simple chart
to monitor your child’s fever and medication.
Reusable device to help you identify the rash associated with meningitis and septicaemia
Reusable forehead thermometer
Fever and medication chart to help you monitor your child’s illness

What doctors say...
“The Meningitis Arc is a very useful tool for anyone concerned about the onset of
meningitis and particularly for parents of unwell children.
In meningitis, early diagnosis and treatment is crucial and I welcome anything that
encourages recognition of all the many other signs and symptoms. The Arc has the
potential to be a simple but effective aid for prompt recognition of the condition.”
Consultant Paediatrician, Chester,UK.
