CTS diagnosis made easy

The Product

Assessment solution for peripheral neuropathies

The Mediracer® NCS is used for measuring sensory and motor nerve conduction from peripheral nerves. The measured data can be utilized in diagnosing and evaluating systemic and entrapment neuropathies. Current application allows examination of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome related median nerve entrapment and ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow. The tests are performed using disposable adhesive surface electrodes. Test results can be used to determine if the finding is abnormal and to grade the severity of the nerve entrapment.

Mediracer® NCS solution includes Mediracer® NCS-device, electrodes, cables, charger and analysis software for PC, as well as built-in introduction and training modules.

The consultancy service

Organizations

Organizations are able to buy interpretation from local doctors who are part of the Consultancy Service. Alternatively organizations can buy interpretation directly from us if local doctors are not available.

Doctors

Neurophysiology consultants who are willing/interested in joining our Consultancy Service can create their own network in local area to give interpretation to patients.
