Use these evaluators to test sensory levels and obtain objective data for accurate reporting on the status of diminishing or returning sensibility. Touch-Test Sensory Evaluators are individually calibrated within a 5% standard deviation of a predetermined level of force. The monofilament bends when peak force threshold is reached.
The unique handle easily opens to a 90 degrees angle for testing. When closed, the Sensory Evaluator can be carried safely in a pocket or carrying case, protecting the monofilament when not in use. Finger indentations on the handle provide a firm, comfortable hold. The Sensory Evaluator handles are marked with the corresponding color-coded pressure level.
Evaluation results can be recorded on the Hand or Foot Screening Forms (NC12750-1 and NC12749), sold separately. Thresholds include normal sensation, diminished light touch, diminished protective sensation, loss of protective sensation and deep pressure sensation only.
Available in a 5 Piece Hand Kit, a 6 Piece Foot Kit and a 20 Piece Full Kit. Each kit comes in a protective case. U.S. Patent 5,823,969.
These portable sensory evaluators are calibrated to within a 5% standard deviation of each target force.
