This study assessed a newly developed cuff pressure algometry during discrete leg skin/muscle sensitization and anesthesia. Experimental setup consisted of a pneumatic tourniquet cuff, a computer-controlled air compressor, and an electronic visual analog scale (VAS). The first experiment assessed cuff algometry before and after selective anesthesia of the skin and the muscle under the cuff. The second experiment assessed cuff algometry before and during skin and muscle sensitization with… CONTINUE READING
