Neuropen Screening Device for Peripheral Neuropathy in the Diabetic Foot

Neuropen Screening Device for Peripheral Neuropathy in the Diabetic Foot

Neuropen Screening Device for Peripheral Neuropathy in the Diabetic Foot

Neuropen is an effective screening aid , which combines two calibrated tests enabling the clinician to identify those patients most at risk of foot ulceration, when used in conjunction with symptomatic and clinical assessments.

"Diabetes mellitus is a costly condition consuming approximately 5% of National Health Care expenditure, mostly due to management of the long tem complications such as diabetic foot disease".

"Systematic and regular foot care has been shown to reduce the risk of chronic ulceration and amputation in the lower limb by 50% or more".

Neurotips Neurotips are sterile, single use neurological examination pins, which eliminate the risk of infection. They are semi-sharp, to reduce the risk of skin puncture particularly on fragile skin.

Calibrated Neurotip test - assesses reduced sensation to sharpness/ pain in small nerve fibres.

Using a Neurotip within a Neuropen ensures that a quantifiable force of 40g can be exerted safely onto the skin, providing a standardised test to identify patients with a decreased sensation to sharpness.

This provides the clinician with a safer tool for testing pain sensation, as the chance of piercing the skin with this standardised force in minimal.
 
Monofilaments -10g Monofilament test- assesses touch/ pressure sensation in large nerve fibres.

The 10g monofilament test enables the clinician  to map areas of reduced pressure perception by  exerting a specific repeatable force on test site. The 10g monofilaments are replaceable providing the user with a reliable and reproducible test.

"Patients with an inability to detect pressure from such a filament have been shown to have a five fold increased risk of foot ulceration."
