Kilde Medic Digital Biothesiometer with PC Connection

Discover the advanced capabilities of the Kilde Medic Digital Biothesiometer, an essential instrument used in clinical settings for assessing sensory neuropathy. This state-of-the-art device, also known as a Vibrometer or Sensiometer, measures the threshold of vibration perception in humans. It is particularly valuable in neurology and diabetic care.

Peripheral sensory neuropathy in diabetic patients often results in a diminished ability to perceive vibrations. The Kilde Medic Digital Biothesiometer accurately measures the vibration perception threshold (VPT), providing critical data for evaluating neuropathy severity. Elevated VPT values signify decreased vibration sensitivity, directly correlating with neuropathy. This condition increases the risk of foot ulcerations and other serious complications.

Explore the versatile applications of the Kilde Medic Digital Biothesiometer and how it enhances patient care in neurology and diabetes management.

Biothesiometer / Sensiometer / Vibrometer Uses

Assessment of Diabetic Neuropathy:

The Kilde Medic Digital Biothesiometer, also known as the Siowin, Vibrometer, Vibrosense, or Sensiometer VPT, is an advanced tool designed to measure the loss of vibration sensitivity in diabetic feet. This device is crucial for verifying ulcer risk and quantifying diabetic polyneuropathy. The biothesiometer features an electrically arranged fork that gradually increases vibrations until the patient loses sensation, providing accurate measurements of sensory thresholds.

Monitoring Peripheral Neuropathy:

The digital biothesiometer, referred to as Vibrosense, Sensiometer VPT, or Siowin, is essential for detecting sensory loss, analyzing diabetic feet, and monitoring peripheral neuropathy. This user-friendly device is effective for diagnosing neurological conditions by identifying lowered vibratory sensory limits, making it ideal for routine screening and ongoing patient monitoring.

Assessment of Neurological Disorders:

The Kilde Medic Biothesiometer is a valuable tool for diagnosing a wide range of neurological disorders beyond peripheral neuropathy. It provides critical insights into sensory nerve function for conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, and spinal cord injuries. By tracking variations in VPT levels over time, healthcare providers can gain valuable information about the progression of these conditions and the effectiveness of treatments.

Evaluation of Erectile Dysfunction:

The Kilde Medic Biothesiometer is also instrumental in assessing sensory nerve function in cases of erectile dysfunction (ED), particularly when neurological causes are suspected. Elevated VPT values may indicate a higher risk of ED and reduced sensitivity. By incorporating VPT measurements into the diagnostic process, medical professionals can better understand the underlying neurological mechanisms and tailor treatment plans accordingly.

Research Purposes:

In research settings, the digital biothesiometer, sometimes referred to as a vibrometer or sensiometer, plays a significant role in determining an individual’s vibration sensitivity level. It aids in diagnosing conditions such as erectile dysfunction and diabetic neuropathy and is useful for tracking the progression of these issues and the effectiveness of treatments over time.

Clinical application

  • Diabetic peripheral neuropathy examination, diabetic foot risk screening.
  • Neurology, surgical sensory nerve examination, occupational disease identification.
  • Evaluation of sensory nerve recovery function, evaluation of drug treatment effect.
  • Evaluation of acute and chronic poisoning events.
  • Male dysfunction (premature ejculation) – senstive nerve examination of penis.

The Kilde Medic Digital Biothesiometer is a versatile instrument crucial for the diagnosis and follow-up of conditions such as erectile dysfunction, neurological disorders, and diabetic neuropathy. By measuring vibration perception thresholds, it provides significant insights into sensory nerve function, aiding in disease management and treatment planning.

Kilde Medic Digital Biothesiometer / Sensiometer / Vibrometer stands out as the preferred test instrument in numerous hospitals and clinics worldwide. Our device delivers precise measurements and versatile performance unmatched by any other on the market.

Monofilaments and tuning forks are tools for peripheral neuropathy assessment, affecting nerves outside the brain/spinal cord. A biothesiometer measures vibration perception threshold (VPT) in neuropathy. Monofilaments test tactile sensitivity via pressure on skin points, while tuning forks gauge vibratory sensation on bony areas. Digital Biothesiometer combines both, using a vibrating probe for precise VPT measurement, surpassing tuning forks’ capabilities.
