Detect peripheral nerve damage in time!
The VibroSense Meter® II can detect early signs of peripheral sensory neuropathy, i.e. damage to receptors, nerves and nerve trunks in the hands and feet.
Sensory neuropathy is a common complication in the treatment of cancer with chemotherapy and in diabetes types I and II. Another common complication is nerve damage in the hands and fingers caused by vibrating tools (HAVS, Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome).
The VibroSense Meter II uses a unique measurement method, Multi Frequency Vibrometry, which examines and quantifies the ability to perceive fine-tuned vibrations applied to the skin over a wide frequency range.
The method facilitates the diagnosis process for physician and health care professionals to quickly find deviations and thus provide support for treatment decisions at an early stage.
According to the International Diabetes Federation's (IDF) estimate in 2018, about 425 million people worldwide suffered from diabetes. Diabetes is defined as chronically elevated blood sugar due to decreased insulin production in relation to the need or impaired insulin effect in the cells. Read more ›››
The tactile sensibility in the hand (with the exception of the little finger) is dependent on the major sensory nerve of the hand – the medianus nerve. At the wrist level, the medianus nerve passes through a narrow canal – the carpal tunnel – where it run along several flexing tendons of the hand. Read more ›››
The human neural system is complex and it is divided into the central (CNS) and peripheral (PNS) nervous system. The central neural system consists of the brain and spinal cord and the peripheral neuralsystem consists of the nerves and nerve trunks of the upper and lower extremities. Read more ›››
