The Tewameter® TM Hex (successor of the world-wide popular Tewameter® TM 300) assesses the Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL), indispensable parameter for the evaluation of the water barrier function of the skin, with a revolutionary accuracy and reproducibility.
30 sensors inside the probe “see” the relative humidity and temperature like a camera. The high amount of data allows the user not only to highly accurately measure inside the probe but can show results also for the areas right outside the probe, namely skin surface and ambience above the probe.
Thus, new, exciting parameters (e.g. local skin energy balance and others) may give interesting insights in several research fields.
