Vibration perception threshold (VPT) has been shown to be strongly associated with foot ulceration. VPT determination by using a Digital Biothesiometer has been used to identify peripheral sensory neuropathy and subjects at risk of foot. Digital Biothesiometer helps us quantitate the threshold and monitor progressive changes or trends on following up testing.
Sensory neuropathy increases the risk of foot ulcerations by seven folds and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) by three folds in people with diabetes. Peripheral neuropathy is the major causal factors in the development of foot ulcerations among diabetic subjects.
Early detection of vibration perception threshold (VPT) helps better prevention. Prevention is better than no cure. 50% of all non-traumatic amputations occur in diabetes who is a high-risk group.
We are the first company to introduce the Digital Biothesiometer in the Indian market as early as January 2003.
