A well defined step compression was applied over an area of the skin and maintained for a fixed time. The resistive force of the tissue, which was continuously recorded, decreased with time as a function of the translocation of fluid volume to the surrounding areas. The rate of decrease was proportional to the fluid mobility. Measurements on ten normal subjects and 14 oedematous patients showed marked differences in the pattern of fluid translocation. Flow rate and total volume flow under… CONTINUE READING
