Skin-Thermometer ST 500

Assessing Skin Temperature and Microcirculation

The Skin-Thermometer ST 500 is a quick, easy and economical tool to measure the skin temperature which is an indicator of the skin's microcirculation.

  • 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.
    Skin Thermometer WLThe Skin-Thermometer is available as a stand-alone device or connectable to the MPA systems or as a wireless probe (please see details in Basic Probe Systems).
  • The Measurement Principle

    Skin Thermometer principle eThe measurement is based on relative infrared temperature measurement.
  • Fields of Applications

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

    Skin Thermometer correlation CM
    • 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.
    • Typical claims (examples) substantiated with the Skin-Thermometer: micro circulation enhancing (skin and scalp), anti-cellulite, supports healing, warming/cooling, thermal protection, and more.
    • In dermatology and occupational medicine it gives information for basic research.
