Penguin logo

We are in process of redesigning the Penguin enclosure. Please check back for updates and product availability.

The NOVA Penguin is an independent system designed to measure skin hydration non-invasively via electrical impedance readings. The Penguin's features provide a superior level of convenience and portability. Powered by two rechargeable "AA" batteries, the Penguin communicates with a PC using an IrDA technology, making wires and cables unnecessary. The Penguin is provided with its own recharger and, as such, is both green and sustainable. Data is uploaded to a PC and stored in the form of a pre-labeled Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.

General Features

  • Self calibration - instrument calibrates itself immediately at start-up
  • PC interfacing through IrDA link - no wires or cables needed to communicate with PC
  • Independent data storage - all data is stored on the probe
  • Force compensation - ensures user applies correct amount of force
  • Skin surface temperature measurement

Operational Functions

  • Clear numerical depiction of DPM, temperature, and force with each reading
  • Button icons allow for quick and easy transition between screens and data transmission to PC
  • Large bar graph icon ensures user data collection at appropriate force level
  • Date and time stamp clearly shown on Penguin screen
  • Battery icon graphic indicated battery charge level
  • Penguin may be set to emulate DPM 9003 data collection
