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 remains… Expand
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‐alternative… Expand
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 more… Expand
