Answer

The most important advantages demonstrated of the Vesmeter were its ability to measure the physical properties of keloids and hypertrophic scars at any point during the clinical course and digitalize the data and its capability to evaluate clinical improvement or deterioration after a given treatment. Vesmeter was demonstrated to be sensitive and can detect very slight changes in skin hardness and elasticity.
