Starts a collaboration in research on diabetes-related nerve damage with a prominent university clinic in Great Britain

VibroSense has signed a collaboration agreement regarding research on diabetes-related nerve damage with Professor Mitra Tavalkoli at the University of Exeter, Center of Excellence for Diabetes Research in the UK.

Professor Tavakoli intends to introduce and evaluate the VibroSense Meter® II in ongoing clinical studies on people with diabetes. The aim is to investigate whether the VibroSense instrument can be a tool for early and reliable detection of nerve damage caused by diabetes (Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy).

For VibroSense, the collaboration is expected to provide the company with additional knowledge and clinical data that can be used to increase interest in the application Diabetic Foot Screening.

Within research, there is an overwhelming consensus that today's clinical methods for diagnosing diabetic neuropathy are far too inferior. For people living with diabetes and the health care, this has serious consequences both in terms of personal suffering and astronomical costs. The need for better diagnostic methods is therefore deemed urgent.

"The collaboration with Professor Tavakoli is a great success that can mean a lot in gaining acceptance for the company's instruments and technology among world-leading researchers in diabetic neuropathy. Professor Tavakoli is a respected member of Neurodiab, which is an important research group with special responsibility for promoting research and education in diabetic neuropathy",  says Hans Wallin, CEO of VibroSense Dynamics AB.

"The clinical care of the diabetic foot today is inadequate, which is largely due to the lack of reliable methods to detect peripheral neuropathy. It is therefore of great interest to evaluate the instrument VibroSense Meter® II clinically to investigate whether it is a tool for Screening of the diabetic foot, which also can facilitate development of new treatment regimens”, says Professor Mitra Tavakoli, Center of Excellence for Diabetes Research.
