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

Seven simple steps
1. Hands are washed
Proper washing is necessary for accurate test results.
2. Attach the registration electrode
The registration electrode is attached to the wrist.
3. Attach the stimulation electrode
The stimulation electrode is first attached to the ring finger.
4. Begin the test
Relax the arm. The electrodes are then plugged into the device. Find the stimulation level and begin the test.
5. Test the index finger
Repeat the testing procedure for the index finger.
6. Test the little finger
Repeat the testing procedure for the little finger.
7. Instant test results
The test results are analyzed locally or over a secure internet connection. Diagnosis will be ready during your visit.
