MEM - Membrane Phantom

The MEM Phantom is desgined and optimized for compliance testing of wireless devices and other electromagnetic emitting devices that may be partially surrounded by tissue or in direct contact with the tissue (wireless hands-free kits, hearing aids, skin-mounted devices, inductive activators, etc.).  

A cable feedthrough allows the testing of specific absorption rate of body-worn devices that are connected to a radiofrequency source by a conductor (e.g., wired hands-free kitsor body-worn read-out devices and tags). MEM allows the device-under-test (DUT) to be placed on a platform, and a latex membrane covering the DUT conforms to it once a vacuum is applied. The reservoir on top of the membrane is then filled with tissue simulating liquid and 3D scans around the DUT are performed based on its CAD data. The MEM phantom is compatible with most of SPEAG's tissue simulating liquids and all of SPEAG's dosimetric probes. The MEM phantom is delivered ready for use with a vacuum pump, pressure meter, and membrane.

Liquid Compatibility

The phantom shell is compatible with SPEAG's tissue simulating liquids (sugar and oil based). Use of other liquids may render the phantom warranty void (see note or consult SPEAG support).
