For the Multiprobe Adapter System Courage+Khazaka electronic developed a new tool to look at the skin softness/stiffness. The indentation depth of the pin (displacement of the skin) is determined. According to the skin site probes with different pin sizes (2, 3 and 5 mm Ø) can be chosen. A special shaped probe for the firmness measurement of the scalp is available (pin 1 mm Ø).

Combined with the Cutometer® MPA 580 and other probes it is an ideal instrument for efficacy testing and claim support for firmness enhancing and anti-ageing products. It offers a wide scope of applications in clinical research in the field of wound healing, skin diseases like scleroderma or medical studies e.g. in gynecology or about diabetis.

Measurements on different surfaces are also possible (e.g. textiles, plastic, food and many more).
