SENSITIVITY

Mediracer® NCS is reliable, cost-efficient, fast, and easy to use at point of care. CTS or UNE examination usually takes less than 10 minutes and is often performed by a physiotherapist or a nurse with the interpretation provided by a local doctor or remotely via Mediracer interpretation service. Median and ulnar nerve comparison study makes the method one of the most sensitive in carpal tunnel syndrome diagnostics², providing immediate indication and severity of the condition.

About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)

In CTS, the median nerve is compressed at the carpal tunnel. Prevalence of CTS is from 3 to 5% in a general population, with appr. 15% of population being symptomatic³. CTS, together with the Ulnar Nerve entrapment at the Elbow (UNE) comprise about 80% of all upper limb nerve entrapments.
