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.

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.

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.

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.

The LymphScanner is the only non-invasive device capable of measuring localized percentage water content (PWC) in the earliest stages of lymphedema and to track treatment-related effects in human skin. The method has utility in many conditions including after surgeries for breast cancer, gynecological cancers and melanoma. The hand-held device can assist a physician in forming a clinical judgement of lymphedema at any skin site of the body. The measurement results are displayed in seconds after applying the measurement probe on the skin surface.

Assessment of localized increase of tissue water content is necessary for early lymphedema detection since lymphedema occurs locally in skin due to dermal backflow. Although the PWC values vary by measurement site, age, BMI and gender, the inter-arm measurement site method eliminates variations between individuals. Rapid skin scanning helps lymphologists and therapists to get spatial information on the localized and regional extent of lymphedema for planning of treatment interventions.
