Volume Measurement Kits, Arm/Forearm
Definition : Prepackaged collection of reusable devices designed for in-vivo accurate measurement of the volume of a forearm and/or the forearm and arm (i.e., the complete upper limb) volume and/or its variations. These kits typically consist of a graduated disposable container with appropriate volume and shape for total immersion of the forearm/arm. The container is filled with water or other solution that is displaced by the immersion of the limb. The container includes an output beak, an overflow liquid container to receive the displaced water caused by the immersion, and a burette to measure the displaced water. Arm/forearm volume measuring kits are intended mainly to assess changes in the volume of an arm to evaluate abnormal physiologic conditions such as edema.
