Directional water transport tester for fabrics

This Directional Water Transport Tester(DWTT) is a sensitive, accurate and reliable instrument for fabrics' water absorption and transport measurements developed by researchers at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. DWTT's measurements are based on gravimetric and image analysis of water absorbed by a fabric. Then it can trace the direction of water spread and measure the amount of water transported on the skin.
