SUDOSCAN IN DIABETES:
IDENTIFICATION AND FOLLOW-UP OF
THE AT RISK DIABETIC FOOT

Banner evenement WoundHSI June 2019

The role of quantitative sudomotor testing

Impeto Medical will present SUDOSCAN and the role of quantitative sudomotor testing during the 17th annual conference of WoundHSI, Wound Healing: Science & Industry, on 20-21 June 2019 at New York.

The diabetic foot is a very costly complication of diabetes both personally and financially. Pathophysiology often involves a combination of neuropathy and peripheral artery disease, progressing to ulceration and limb loss.  Current recommendations for foot screening detect the risk of diabetic complication too late in its course, and studies show poor compliance by the physicians in following guidelines.

Sudomotor nerves are unmyelinated autonomic fibers innervating sweat glands and affected early in diabetic neuropathy.  New sudomotor testing methods are rapid, quantitative, and reproducible; they may detect a diabetic foot at risk early, and can be implemented for routine clinical screening and accurate follow-up with minimal impact to the clinic’s work flow. Clinical research data on sudomotor function testing for the diabetic foot will be presented.

About SUDOSCAN

SUDOSCAN is a quick and non-invasive test that provides an accurate evaluation of sweat gland function therefore the small nerve fibers state within the peripheral autonomic nervous system.

With a quantitative and reproducible results, SUDOSCAN allows physicians to early detect and follow-up peripheral neuropathy to monitor disease progression and asses treatment efficacy for a better patient management.

SUDOSCAN efficacy has been tested for small nerve fiber neuropathies in several diseases and compared to guidelines reference tests.
