The measurement of cutaneous pain threshold using the Neuromod Selectra Model 7750 Transcutaneous Neuronal Electrical Stimulator is described. Pain threshold, measured in 520 healthy volunteers aged 5-105 years, increased with age. Consistent values were obtained in 22 healthy volunteers on three successive days. Pain threshold may be rapidly measured by this method which is potentially of value in the assessment of patients with neurological deficits.
