Dia-Stron Ballistometer BLS780 with Probe

 

BLS780 Ballistometer: to measure increases and decreases of firmness and elasticity
within the skin.

The BLS780 is based upon the traditional
ballistometric principle by impacting an
object at a constant force. This measures
its firmness by indentation and dynamic
resilience by the degree of rebound. The
innovation in the Ballistometer arises from
the inclusion of a torsional wire
mechanism, which makes the instrument
non-gravity dependent.
The unique design of the Ballistometer
allows the user to define the amount of
energy put into the skin so that different
layers may be studied. These
measurements are complementary to
existing products such as the DTM310
Dermal Torque Meter, extending our range
of biomechanical instruments.

Principal benefits
 Works at any angle, non-gravity
dependent
 Measures small, inaccessible test
sites
 Tests for different materials
 Consistency with probe arm
 Bespoke software with automated
analysis
 Lightweight and easy to transport
Applications & Claims
 Anti-ageing product claims
 Cellulite related claims
 Evaluation of medical conditions;
Schleraderma and Oedema
 Quality of wound formation

Description

Dia-Stron Ballistometer BLS780 with Probe

 

BLS780 Ballistometer: to measure increases and decreases of firmness and elasticity
within the skin.

The Ballistometer consists of a slim line probe only 25cm long and a small control unit
connected to a PC serial port.
The probe contains a rigid low mass arm suspended at its balance point on a torsion
wire. A ruby tipped stylus is fixed to one end. The arm is activated by a solenoid that
elevates the probe tip from the test surface. On release, the arm oscillates around its
balance position and the stylus bounces repeatedly on the test site before coming to
rest. The position of the arm is monitored by an optical sensor and the positional data
transmitted to the PC via the control unit.
