Monofilaments are a reliable, cost effective method of testing for the presence or absence of protective sensation, thereby identifying patients at risk of developing Diabetic foot ulcers.
Sensory testing used in conjunction with ongoing physician care is a simple way to help decrease the incidence of foot ulcerations and amputations.
Monofilaments are ‘user friendly’, enabling patients to actively participate in their care.
Diaped Monofilaments are manufactured and tested to meet the specified tolerances allowed by the Bureau of Primary Health Care/Lower Extremity Amputation Prevention Program (LEAP).
All Diaped Monofilaments tested using in-line precision to ensure the 10-gram force range.
Each Monofilament is fixed to a sensory testing instruction card, that can be marked accordingly by the clinician or patient.
