An essential Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) tool for evaluating nerve impairment and sensory
testing in clinical, research and pharmacological trial settings
What is TSA-II?
TSA-II – NeuroSensory Analyzer is a precise, computer-controlled device capable of generating and documenting response to highly repeatable thermal and vibratory stimuli, such as warmth, cold, heat-induced pain, cold-induced pain or vibration.
What would the results show?
A deviation from the normal range can indicate the existence of peripheral nerve disease or damage due to injury, illness or toxic exposure. Testing comparing contra-lateral body sites and longitudinal (or serial) evaluation before and after therapy can also be routinely employed.
Can I get the test report?
Test result reports are generated in a variety of graphical formats.
Dr. Martin Angst from the department of anesthesia at Stanford University is using the TSA II for determining heat and mechanical pain threshold as described here.
