Neuropathy Assessment Kit – NA03 This basic Neuropathy Assessment kit consists of one Tiptherm, one VibraTip and Ten 10gm Monofilaments to check the temperature, vibration and touch sensitivity. Early diagnosis of distal symmetric polyneuropathy by testing temperature sensitivity, can prevent complications of diabetic foot. Precious time is gained if examinations are geared towards detecting this symptom. Regular testing of temperature sensitivity should therefore be a compulsory part of basic diabetes treatment. 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). TIP THERM® is ideal for testing temperature sensitivity. It is not dependent on external power sources, is practically indestructible, easy to handle and small and light enough to fit in any jacket or overall pocket. VibraTipTM: a wipe-clean, pocket-sized and disposable device for testing vibration sense. The advantages include ease and speed of the test with little required training, less user variability compared with the calibrated tuning-fork test, small size, and easy cleaning.
