Jamar Monofilaments are often recommended for diabetic patients who need to frequently test themselves for potential development of peripheral neuropathy. The reusable monofilaments are used to measure diminishing and returning sensation. Neuropathy can develop at any time and, if not tested for, can go unnoticed until other injuries or ulcers appear.
Use to Evaluate the Hand and Foot
The monofilaments come in a wide variety of individual sizes to choose from. In addition, the monofilaments are available in sets that include: Set of 20 Monofilaments, Set of 5 Hand Monofilaments (one each - 2.83, 3.61, 4.31, 4.56 and 6.65), and Set of 6 Foot Monofilaments (one each - 2.83, 3.61, 4.31, 4.56, 5.07 and 6.65). The 20 nylon monofilaments measure equal lengths and have been found through repeated testing to be an extremely accurate method of measuring cutaneous sensibility.
Highly Reusable for Maximum Functionality
For hand and foot evaluations, these monofilaments provide accurate testing for presence and level of peripheral nerve involvement and skin sensitivity. Color pencils included, the monofilaments can be color-coded for easy identification during testing procedures and improved ease of access. It is recommended to clean the reusable monofilaments with an antimicrobial wipe after each patient use.
