Vibratory and Cooling Detection Thresholds Compared With Other Tests in Diagnosing and Staging Diabetic Neuropathy
Increasingly more tests are being used to detect and characterize diabetic polyneuropathy, but their value in setting minimal criteria for the diagnosis of neuropathy and for staging severity remainsExpand

Introduction of automated systems to evaluate touch‐pressure, vibration, and thermal cutaneous sensation in man
Systems for automatic assessment of cutaneous touch‐pressure, vibratory, and thermal sensation have been developed. These systems use stimuli which are quantified and reproductible, a two‐alternativeExpand

Description of “Minnesota Thermal Disks” and normal values of cutaneous thermal discrimination in man
Simple, inexpensive thermal stimulators—Minnesota Thermal Disks—have been designed based on the differences in heat transfer of copper (C), stainless steel (S), glass (G), and polyvinyl chloride (P).Expand

Motor neuron disease (ALS)
Cutaneous touch-pressure, vibration, and thermal cooling detection thresholds were estimated on the skin of one foot for 80 patients with motor neuron disease (MND) and compared with that of moreExpand

Clinical vs quantitative evaluation of cutaneous sensation.
A comparison of the evaluation of cutaneous sensation by neurologic examination and by quantitative assessment in 107 patients with various neuromuscular disease has shown that there is a reasonablyExpand

Computer assisted sensory examination to detect and quantitate sensory deficit in diabetic neuropathy.
In this report we describe computer assisted systems to evaluate cutaneous sensation to detect raised thresholds of cutaneous sensation. Normative data has been obtained so that thresholds are knownExpand
