Paper Abstract

This paper describes design and construction of device for TransEpidermal Water Loss (TEWL) factor measurement. Principle of operation is based on humidity measurement of air flowing through the chamber applied to human's skin surface. Measured data is stored in an EEPROM memory and after finishing, the results can be transferred via RS-232 bus to computer. Special software was designed for data processing, visualization and saving on the PC computer. The goal of constructed device is to develop presented idea of TEWL measurement and compare with other well known methods.
