SkinFibroMeter

Local measurement of tissue induration

SkinFibroMeter – Measure induration in skin and upper subcutis

Superficial induration manifesting in skin and upper subcutis can be quantified with an indentation principle noninvasively without alterations in measured tissue structure. The hand-help portable SkinFibroMeter is the only instrument assessing induration in absolute units of stiffness.

BENEFITS

Fully portable indentation instrument

Measures induration of skin and upper subcutis noninvasively

Fast and sensitive measurement

Does not alter skin structure

The SkinFibroMeter is an instrument to assess tissue stiffness in quantitative units. Only one stiffness parameter is enough to determine the tissue firmness. The SkinFibroMeter has been validated against measurements with industrial standards and in clinical studies against palpation and histological findings.

Measurement principle

The SkinFibroMeter consists of a 1.25 mm length indenter and two force sensors. The device is briefly pressed against the skin and the contact force is registered. The indenter imposes a constant deformation when the instrument is in full contact with the skin. The skin and the underlying upper subcutis resist the deformation and the induration value in Newtons (N) is determined.
