Neuropen® : An effective aid to peripheral neuropathy foot screening
Peripheral neuropathy cannot be excluded without regular foot screening in conjunction with symptomatic and clinical assessments.
Neuropen® is an effective aid to this screening programme, meeting and exceeding current practices by being the first dual-purpose, pocket-sized device designed to provide a safe and reliable test. The Neuropen® is a reusable device that can deliver:
- A 10g pressure test using Neuropen Monofilaments® to assess any reduction in sensation in the tested area.
- A 40g sharpness test using Neurotips® single use neurological examination pins, to assess reduced sensation to sharpness/pain in small nerve fibers.
