Detecting, Analyzing and Reporting Dermal Activity Beyond Visible Skin Surface Properties
Evaluating dermal activity beyond observable surface properties can improve decisions on products and services that may provide optimal support. Use our system to gain insight on product and service decisions.
Allergy Testing (SPT)
Visually observing allergen-induced skin reactions can be difficult based on many factors (e.g. darker skin tones). Use our system as an aid to quantify skin changes to allergens beyond visible surface observations.
Irritation and other negative responses to products may start to occur well in advance of observable surface properties. Use our system as an aid to quantify dermal responses with applied products.
Use our system to image and obtain data regarding wound activity beyond simple observation to aid in the timely recognition of potential complications (e.g. infections). Thermetry is a complementary means to monitor non-visible wound changes over time.
Thermetry is an intelligent adjunct tool for professionals to measure thermal data related to dermal activity and to maximize their service and treatment options through objective, quantifiable feedback. Our technology has been developed to analyze skin temperature variability related to reactive dermal states such as irritation, sensitivity, inflammation, and infection, as well as blood flow activity and oxygenation within the skin. Automated reports are generated to provide prompt, objective feedback about non-visible properties of the skin.
Research shows that skin temperature fluctuations occur in instances of dermal inflammation , irritation  and infection  with detectable thermal gradient changes up to 3° C to 4° C . With decades of ongoing clinical research, infrared imaging is a promising adjunct tool to quantify and monitor dermal activity of specific skin conditions , wound healing  and responses to allergens and skin applications  in a non-invasive, non-contact manner. Our technology analyzes non-visible infrared emissions with corresponding visible dermal properties at specific dermal sites to generate automated reports that offer intelligent feedback on ways to maximize support.
