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 size device designed to provide a safe and reliable test.
Neuropen is a dual function-screening device, the 10g monofilament test enables the clinical to map areas of reduced pressure perception by exerting a specific repeatable force on the test site.
Using a Neurotip within a Neuropen ensures that a quantifiable force of 40g can be exerted safely onto the skin, this standard measurement will identify patients with a decrease in sensation to sharpness.
