Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulator NEUROSTIM: Neurostim is a drug free, painless answer to eliminating pain and burning sense. The Neurostim works by stimulating all your nerves from your lower back down to your toes with a specific gentle waveform that your peripheral nerves naturally use to communicate with the rest of your body. The Neurostim opens your nerve paths to restore full function. All other devices temporarily treat only pain; the Neurostim permanently eliminates pain. • Relieves Your Pain and Numbness • Helps You Sleep All Night • Restores Your Balance and Mobility • Restores Feeling in Feet and Hands • Reduces or Eliminates Pain Medications The NeuroStim has proven to be highly effective in treating a number of conditions, such as: • Diabetic Nerve Pain • Peripheral Neuropathy • Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating polyneuropathy • Muscle Spasms • Peripheral Arterial Disease • Venous Stasis • Stroke Rehabilitation • Symptoms Related to Lymph Disease • Symptoms Related to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Neuropathy Analyser - Thermometry HCP In diabetes mellitus, polyneuropathy is an important complication and should be diagnosed as early as possible in order to prevent damage to the patient. Determination of warm, cold, and heat pain thresholds enables one to judge small nerve fibre sensitivity. Failure to perceive variances in temperature in the extremities is the most decisive early symptom of distal symmetric polyneuropathy, a typical ailment accompanying diabetes mellitus (Ziegler 1988). The Thermometry HCP may be used on patients with neurological diseases (especially peripheral neuropathy). The system is designed to measure and store patient responses to a series of thermal stimuli, but does not make any diagnosis. The test results should be used with the results of other medically accepted tests in order to assist the physician in making a final diagnosis. Features: • Full solid state Design PC enabled • Non invasive testing of pain thresholds • Range : 10 C to 500 C (Restricted for the purpose of safety) • Rate of change : 0.50 C per second for Hot/Cold • Helps to find Cool, Warm, Hot, and Cold Perception Thresholds • Data storage on Personal Computer. • Easy operation with hand remote • Helps detecting Diabetic Polyneuropathy at an early stage
Neuropathy Assessment Kit – NA03 This basic Neuropathy Assessment kit consists of one Tiptherm, one VibraTip and Ten 10gm Monofilaments to check the temperature, vibration and touch sensitivity. Early diagnosis of distal symmetric polyneuropathy by testing temperature sensitivity, can prevent complications of diabetic foot. Precious time is gained if examinations are geared towards detecting this symptom. Regular testing of temperature sensitivity should therefore be a compulsory part of basic diabetes treatment. Failure to perceive variances in temperature in the extremities is the most decisive early symptom of distal symmetric polyneuropathy, a typical ailment accompanying diabetes mellitus (Ziegler 1988). TIP THERM® is ideal for testing temperature sensitivity. It is not dependent on external power sources, is practically indestructible, easy to handle and small and light enough to fit in any jacket or overall pocket. VibraTipTM: a wipe-clean, pocket-sized and disposable device for testing vibration sense. The advantages include ease and speed of the test with little required training, less user variability compared with the calibrated tuning-fork test, small size, and easy cleaning.
Neuropathy Analyser - Vibrotherm Dx For Quantitative Sensory Testing Measurement of Peripheral Sensory Thresholds: Vibration and Thermal (Cooling, Heat-Pain). In diabetes mellitus, polyneuropathy is an important complication and should be diagnosed as early as possible in order to prevent damage to the patient. Determination of warm, cold, and heat pain thresholds enables one to judge small nerve fibre sensitivity. Failure to perceive variances in temperature in the extremities is the most decisive early symptom of distal symmetric polyneuropathy, a typical ailment accompanying diabetes mellitus (Ziegler 1988). The VIBROTHERM Dx can determine Vibratory Threshold, Cold pain Threshold and Heat Pain Threshold. This model Vibotherm Dx is a combination of VIBROMETER and THERMOMETRY HCP. Supplied with computer connectivity and software for data storage and patient report generation.
Monofilaments 5.07/10gm – MF10GM One of the frequent causes of non-traumatic lower-limb amputation is Diabetes and is usually preceded by foot ulcer and infection. The reason of this ulceration is commonly a loss of protective sensation due to peripheral neuropathy, for which there is no prevention strategy. Current research promotes early detection of neuropathy so that secondary prevention measures, such as intensive foot-care education and treatment, can be used for individuals. In an effort to standardize and simplify the detection of insensate foot, the 5.07/10-gm Monofilament is recommended by the International Diabetes Federation and the World Health Organization as a device that can be used by health professionals at every level of care. A standardised filament is pressed against part of the foot. When the filament bends, its tip is exerting a pressure of 10 grams (therefore this monofilament is often referred to as the 10 gram monofilament). If the patient cannot feel the monofilament at certain specified sites on the foot, he/she has lost enough sensation to be at risk of developing a neuropathic ulcer
