Portable Vibration Sense Device - VibraTip
VibraTip a wipe-clean, pocket-sized and disposable device for testing vibration sense.
Vibration sense is typically one of the first sensory modalities to be impaired as peripheral neuropathy develops.
Graduated tuning forks (e.g. Reidel-Seiffer) and calibrated electronic devices (e.g. Neurothesiometer, Bio-Thesiometer Vibrometer) are recommended to quantify the integrity of vibration sensation.
VibraTip is a wipe-clean, disposable, key fob-sized device that provides a constant and reproducible source of vibration. The spherical head facilitates application from any angle and its pocket size means that it is easy to carry and therefore likely to be available at the point of use.
