Kilde Medic Digital Biothesiometer / Sensiometer / Vibrometer

The Kilde Medic Biothesiometer, also known as a Vibrometer or Sensiometer, is indeed an instrument used to measure the threshold of perception of vibration in humans. It’s commonly used in clinical settings, particularly in neurology and diabetic care, to assess sensory neuropathy.

Digital Biothesiometer / Sensiometer / Vibrometer

Welcome to our website! Discover the versatile applications of the Kilde Medic Biothesiometer, a cutting-edge instrument utilized in clinical settings, particularly in neurology and diabetic care.

In diabetic patients, peripheral sensory neuropathy can lead to a decreased ability to perceive vibration, which can be accessed through the vibration perception threshold (VPT) measured by the Kilde Medic Digital Biothesiometer. Higher VPT values indicate reduced sensitivity to vibration, which correlates with neuropathy. This neuropathy can increase the risk of foot ulcerations and other complications.


Here’s a closer look at its key uses:
  • Assessment of Diabetic Neuropathy: The Kilde Medic Digital Biothesiometer is instrumental in evaluating diabetic neuropathy, a condition marked by nerve damage often seen in diabetic patients. By measuring the vibration perception threshold (VPT) in the feet, it helps identify reduced sensitivity to vibration, indicating the presence and severity of neuropathy. This assessment is vital for detecting individuals at risk of developing complications like foot ulcers.
  • Monitoring Peripheral Neuropathy: Beyond diabetes, the Kilde medic Biothesiometer aids in monitoring peripheral neuropathy associated with various conditions such as autoimmune diseases, infections, and nerve compression syndromes. Through regular VPT measurements, healthcare providers can track neuropathy progression and tailor treatment strategies accordingly.
  • Assessment of Neurological Disorders: The Kilde Medic Biothesiometer serves as a valuable tool in diagnosing and managing a range of neurological disorders beyond peripheral neuropathy. Digital Biothesiometer assists in evaluating sensory nerve function in conditions like multiple sclerosis, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, and spinal cord injuries. Monitoring changes in VPT values over time offers insights into disease progression and treatment effectiveness.
  • Evaluation of Erectile Dysfunction: In cases of erectile dysfunction (ED), particularly when neurological factors are suspected, the Kilde Medic Biothesiometer plays a role in assessing sensory nerve function in the genital region. Elevated VPT values may indicate reduced sensitivity, contributing to ED. Incorporating VPT measurements into the evaluation process helps healthcare providers understand underlying neurological mechanisms and tailor treatment approaches accordingly.
  • Research Purposes: The Kilde Medic Digital Biothesiometer is also invaluable for research studies focused on sensory perception, neuropathic pain, and the effects of interventions on nerve function. Researchers leverage the device to explore novel treatments for neuropathy or assess how lifestyle factors impact sensory nerve function.

Kilde Medic Digital Biothesiometer / Sensiometer / Vibrometer stands out as the preferred test instrument in numerous hospitals and clinics worldwide. Our device delivers precise measurements and versatile performance unmatched by any other on the market.

Monofilaments and tuning forks are tools for peripheral neuropathy assessment, affecting nerves outside the brain/spinal cord. A biothesiometer measures vibration perception threshold (VPT) in neuropathy. Monofilaments test tactile sensitivity via pressure on skin points, while tuning forks gauge vibratory sensation on bony areas. Digital Biothesiometer combines both, using a vibrating probe for precise VPT measurement, surpassing tuning forks’ capabilities.
