Assessment solution for peripheral neuropathies

carpal tunnel syndrome

For upper limb nerve conduction studies Mediracer® NCS medical device provides reliable and prompt confirmation for the clinical diagnosis of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and Ulnar Nerve Entrapment (UNE). 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 symptomatic². CTS, together with the ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow comprise about 80% of all upper limb nerve entrapments.

Mediracer® NCS is reliable, cost-efficient, fast, and easy to use at point of care. CTS examination takes about 10 minutes and is usually 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 for in carpal tunnel syndrome diagnostics³, providing immediate indication and severity of the condition.
