TSA-II – NeuroSensory Analyzer
An essential Quantitative Sensory Testing () tool for evaluating nerve impairment and sensory testing in clinical, research and settings
What is TSA-II?
What would the results show?
A deviation from the normal range can indicate the existence of peripheral nerve disease or damage due to injury, illness or toxic exposure. Testing comparing contra-lateral body sites and longitudinal (or serial) evaluation before and after therapy can also be routinely employed.
Can I get the test report?
Test result reports are generated in a variety of graphical formats.
Dr. Martin Angst from the department of anesthesia at Stanford University is using the TSA II for determining heat and mechanical pain threshold as described here.
- Outcome-based color graphic reports with automated narrative discussion of test results for insurance and referral networks
- Automatic comparison of test results to normative reference data
- Portable, fast set-up and ease of use
- Versatile WINDOWST based software with selection of test paradigms for maximum flexibility in clinical, research and drug trial applications.
- Various test methods (Limits, Levels and Manual)
- Factory installed default protocols for immediate clinical use
- Proven Repeatability
Useful in monitoring, treating and testing in:
- Painful neuropathies
