DERMAL IMAGING

Detecting, Analyzing and Reporting Dermal Activity Beyond Visible Skin Surface Properties

THE PROCESS

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.  

INFRARED RESEARCH

Research shows that skin temperature fluctuations occur in instances of dermal inflammation [1], irritation [2] and infection [3] with detectable thermal gradient changes up to 3° C to 4° C ​ [4].   With decades of ongoing clinical research, infrared imaging is a promising adjunct tool to quantify and monitor dermal activity of specific skin conditions [5], wound healing [6] and responses to allergens and skin applications [7] 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.
