Cuff pressure stimulation is applicable for assessing deep-tissue pain sensitivity by exciting a variety of deep-tissue nociceptors. In this study, the relative transfer of biomechanical stresses and strains from the cuff via the skin to the muscle and the somatic tissue layers around bones were investigated. Cuff pressure was applied on the lower leg at(More)
BACKGROUND Cuff algometry is used for quantitative pain assessment although it is not clarified which tissues are actually challenged by the stimulation. This study investigated the mechanical stress and strain distribution in superficial and deep tissues during cuff algometry applied on the lower leg at three different intensities (mild pressure, pain(More)
BACKGROUND The phenomenon of temporal summation to repetitive pressure pain stimuli is an important central neural mechanism for pain intensity encoding. This study evaluated the time-dependent behaviour of mechanical characteristics of soft tissue during repeated cuff stimulation used for eliciting temporal summation of cuff pressure-evoked pain.
