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 features a calibrated spring mechanism to deliver:
- A 40g sharpness test using Neurotips® single use neurological examination pins, to assess reduced sensation to sharpness/ pain in small nerve fibers
- A 10g pressure test using Neuropen Monofilaments® to assess protective touch/pressure sensation in large nerve fibres.
