MoistureMap MM 100

Unique Imaging of Skin Hydration Distribution and Topographic Properties

mm100 belgiumThe MoistureMap MM 100 is a device, featuring a capacitance based sensor which has been known to record fingerprints in the security branch for quite a while. Used on tissue in general (skin, animal skin, plants) the images of the sensor give graphical information on the near surface hydration distribution and the micro-topography of the tissue. On the 1.8 x 1.28 mm silicon chip of the sensor, over 90,000 capacitors are located every 50 µm. The sensor is covered with a silicon oxide layer for protection.

The device measures the penetration of the electromagnetic field and shows the hydration content in different grey levels (dark = very high moisture, bright = very dry). With a special image analysis software the image can be evaluated in different ways. In addition to looking at hydration, topographic measurements (profile, corner density, anisotropy index) give interesting aging parameters.
