The MoistureMeterD Compact is a single depth portable model of the multiprobe MoistureMeterD unit. Both instruments utilize the same innovative measurement technology. The measurement principle of the MoistureMeterD Compact is based on the dielectric constant value of the measured tissue and this is converted into water percentage on a scale from 0 to 100%.
The MoistureMeterD Compact is fully portable and wireless. The effective measurement depth (i.e. the depth where the electric field has attenuated to 37% of the surface value) is 2mm in our current model. Models with other measurement depths can be developed to meet specific application requirements. The unit has a built-in contact pressure sensor for enhanced repeatability 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 changes and effects of treatment.
