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.
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.
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
Hand Held Vascular Doppler - LifeDop L150R Hand Held Vascular Doppler model LIFEDOP L150R, 8MHz works with rechargeable battery widely used for the screening of arterial and venous insufficiency. This vascular ultrasound is an easy tool to find the Ankle Brachial Index (ABI). Features :  Doppler Unidirectional 8 MHz transducer  ABI Doppler  Superior Sound Quality SSQ Audio output  Handy and portable pocket model  All arterial and venous examination of extremities  Interchangeable 4 & 5 MHz Doppler transducer option
Portable Vibration Sense Device - VibraTip VibraTip a wipe-clean, pocket-sized and disposable device for testing vibration sense. Vibration sense is typically one of the first sensory modalities to be impaired as peripheral neuropathy develops. Graduated tuning forks (e.g. Reidel-Seiffer) and calibrated electronic devices (e.g. Neurothesiometer, Bio-Thesiometer Vibrometer) are recommended to quantify the integrity of vibration sensation. VibraTip is a wipe-clean, disposable, key fob-sized device that provides a constant and reproducible source of vibration. The spherical head facilitates application from any angle and its pocket size means that it is easy to carry and therefore likely to be available at the point of use.
