BMI 1190 Sensory Evaluators – Use these evaluators to test sensory levels and obtain objective data for accurate reporting on the status of diminishing or returning sensibility. Touch-Test® Sensory Evaluators are individually calibrated within a 5% standard deviation of a predetermined level of force. The monofilament bends when peak force threshold is reached.
The unique handle easily opens to a 90° angle for testing. When closed, the Sensory Evaluator can be carried safely in a pocket or carrying case, protecting the monofilament when not in use. Finger indentations on the handle provide a firm, comfortable hold. The Sensory Evaluator handles are marked with the corresponding color-coded pressure level.
Evaluation results can be recorded on the Hand or Foot Screening Forms (NC12750-1 and NC12749), sold separately. Thresholds include normal sensation, diminished light touch, diminished protective sensation, loss of protective sensation and deep pressure sensation only.
