MoistureMeterD Compact

Local measurement of edema

MoistureMeterD Compact – Universal device to measure edema locally and non-invasively

The MoistureMeterD Compact is a portable device that operates on the same principle of the multiprobe MoistureMeterD unit. It is a unique tissue water-specific instrument for the localized measurement of water content of biological tissues. The tissue dielectric constant (TDC) measured noninvasively and within seconds in skin is converted into percentage water content (PWC) scale from 0 to 100 %.

BENEFITS

Highly sensitive measurement of percentage water content in skin and subcutis

Totally non-invasive

Localized edema measurements at virtually all body skin sites

Displays percentage water content (0 - 100 %) highly proportional to interstitial fluid

Built-in pressure sensor for consistent, reproducible and user-independent measurements

The practicality of the MoistureMeterD Compact makes it an ideal tool for measurements in clinical settings and therapy centers for assessing tissue water, edema and effects of treatment interventions. Applications for the MoistureMeterD Compact vary from edema of medical conditions into research and development applications in pharmaceutical, wound and personal care industry where easy assessment of tissue water content is mandatory.

Measurement principle

The MoistureMeterD Compact generates a low power 300 MHz microwave field exposed to tissue. Part of the signal is absorbed and part is reflected back to permit the calculation of a dielectric constant, which is directly proportional to the water content of the measured tissue. The value increases with increasing water content and edema.
