Advantages of the Skin-Thermometer

Skin thermometer neck

  • It allows very quick measurements (1 s).
  • Continuous measurements over a longer time period can optionally be performed.
  • The probe is small and lightweight for easy handling and measurement on all body sites.
  • The touchless measurement ensures no influences on the skin's micro circulation.
  • Ideal for comparison measurements on different body sites.
  • The probe head can easily be cleaned after each measurement.

Fields of Application:

The probe finds its field of application everywhere where differences in the skin temperature and the skin microcirculation are of interest.Correlation temperature

  • Ideal accompanying measurement  for other parameters. E.g. skin hydration is very different with different skin temperature.
  • It is a valuable tool for efficacy testing and claim support for cosmetics and pharmaceuticals (e.g. microcirculation enhancing products, anti-cellulite products).
  • In dermatology and occupational medicine it gives information for basic research.
