“For us to improve nerve function and the quality of life of the individual, we had to do extensive measures: skin biopsy to look at nerve regeneration, nerve conduction studies to show enhancements of nerve conductions and quantitative sensory tests which have a wide variance. These tests are time consuming, laborious and full of error. Now, we have SUDOSCAN that can measure electrical conductance along with sweat gland function in only 2 minutes with instant results that are 75% sensitive, 98% specific and with less than 5% error*.”
