The engineering of human tissue represents a major technique in clinical medicine. Material evaluation of skin is important as preventive medicine. Decubitus originates in pressure and the rub. However, shearing in the skin has exerted the influences on the sore pressures most. This paper examines one demand of crucial importance, namely the real time in vivo monitoring of the shearing characteristics skin tissue. Rheometer is a technology developed to measure viscoelasticity of solid and liquid. To measure viscoelasticity of the skin in the noninvasive with this device, we remodeled it. It is ideal for the continuous monitoring of tissues in vivo.
