For Quantitative Sensory Testing Measurement of Peripheral Sensory Thresholds: Vibration and Thermal (Cooling, Heat-Pain). In diabetes mellitus, polyneuropathy is an important complication and should be diagnosed as early as possible in order to prevent damage to the patient. Determination of warm, cold, and heat pain thresholds enables one to judge small nerve fibre sensitivity. Failure to perceive variances in temperature in the extremities is the most decisive early symptom of distal symmetric polyneuropathy, a typical ailment accompanying diabetes mellitus (Ziegler 1988). The Vibrotherm Dx may be used on patients with neurological diseases (especially Peripheral Neuropathy). The system is designed to measure and store patient responses to a series of thermal or vibratory stimuli, but does not make any diagnosis. The test results should be used with the results of other medically accepted tests in order to assist the physician in making a final diagnosis. The product is highly accurate and truly calibrated to produce repeatable results. When the patients are properly explained and instructed before the testing, the results of the tests are highly sensitive, specific, and quantified. The Vibrotherm Dx can determine Vibratory Threshold, Cooling Threshold and Heat Pain Threshold. In order to understand better the model Vibrometer and Thermometry HCP are combined in this model.
