MoistureMeterD

Measurements of tissue water content at different depths

MoistureMeterD – Measure tissue water and edema locally

The Delfin MoistureMeterD is a unique water-specific instrument for the measurement of water content of biological tissues. It measures the dielectric constant of the skin and subcutaneous tissues non-invasively and locally in a few seconds. The tissue dielectric constant (TDC) is directly proportional to the amount of water in the tissue. The TDC value increases with increasing water content and edema.

BENEFITS

Highly sensitive measurement of water content and edema in skin and subcutis

Totally non-invasive

Fast and easy measurement

Local measurements on virtually all areas of the body

Probes for different measurement depths up to 5 mm

The desktop multiprobe MoistureMeterD model consists of a measuring unit and four probes with effective measurement depths from 0.5 mm to 5.0 mm. The multiprobe MoistureMeterD can be used in all clinical and non-clinical research applications where changes of tissue water may exist.

Measurement principle

The MoistureMeterD generates a high frequency, 300 MHz, low power electromagnetic (EM) wave which the tissue is exposed to. The reflected EM wave is registered and the obtained value is a dielectric constant, which is proportional to the water content of the measured tissue. The value increases with increasing water content and edema.
