Electrodiagnostic solution for carpal tunnel syndrome assessment
For upper limb nerve conduction studies Mediracer® NCS medical device provides reliable and prompt confirmation for the clinical diagnosis of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). Mediracer NCS may be used also for Ulnar Nerve entrapment at the Elbow (UNE) studies.
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.
Mediracer® NCS solution
Mediracer® NCS solution comprises of a handheld NCS device, disposal electrodes, sensory and/or motor cables, charger and analysis software for PC. Mediracer turnkey solution provides also optional remote interpretation service by clinical neurophysiologist, or just a platform for interpretation by a local doctor.
Mediracer® NCS is a certified class IIa medical device in Europe (CE), U.S. (FDA), Japan (PMDA), Korea (KFDA) and Australia (TGA).
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.
