Vibration sensitivity testing with tuning fork—256 Hz or 512 Hz?


Outcome measures of vibratory sensitivity using a 256-Hz tuning fork depend on the perception of vibration by the patient and qualitative comparison with sensory threshold on the examiner. The authors present their experience of comparison of vibratory sensation using a 512-Hz tuning fork with the conventional 256-Hz counterpart in normal volunteers. The… (More)
