Several devices have been developed for rapid motor or sensory median nerve conduction testing. We evaluated the validity and reliability of the Neurosentinel (NS) and NervePace (NP) electroneurometer for sensory and motor testing, respectively, compared with formal electrodiagnostic studies (EDS), and examined their potential role in workplace screening for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Thirty-two working subjects without CTS were examined and tested with the NS, NP, and EDS, and retested one… CONTINUE READING
