CARVALHO, Rogério Mendonça de; PEREZ, Maria del Carmen Janeiro  e  MIRANDA JUNIOR, Fausto. Volumeter with communicating chambers: presentation of a prototype with reduced dimensions developed for objective assessment of hand volume. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.2, pp.76-80. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492010000200011.

Traditional water displacement volumetry, based on Archimedes' principle of buoyancy, is considered the gold-standard for limb volume measurement. However, the routine use of this technique is associated with a series of disadvantages: the method is cumbersome to the patient, messy and unhygienic, and it takes a great amount of the examiner's time. This article presents the prototype of a new piece of equipment designed according to Pascal's principle of communicating vases for the direct evaluation of hand volume.

Palavras-chave : Plethysmography; measurement equipment; extremities; biomedical technology assessment.
