EZSCAN

What is EZSCAN ?

EZSCAN is a medical device for the early detection of peripheral autonomic neuropathies it can be used to identify people at increased risk of diabetes
(pre-diabetes included).

This is an alternative method of screening to optimize prevention
and management of diabetes risk. 

Small fiber neuropathy and diabetes

Several studies have proven that small fiber neuropathies are common in people with insulin resistance and prediabetes (IGT) [1] [2]. Sudomotor function is known to reflect sympathetic activity and to provide insight into postganglionic autonomic innervation. Its assessment represents a useful method to evaluate autonomic disorders [3]. Investigation of sudomotor function can help in early detection of cardiometabolic risk.

A test of sudoral function

The degeneration of small nerve fibers reduces sweat gland innervation and impairs sudomotor function.

The sweat gland function tests by applying a small direct current to both hand and foot sensor plates.
At a low voltage, the stratum corneum acts as a capacitor, leaving the sweat ducts as the only channel for the transmission of Cl- ions.

EZSCAN provide a score of metabolic risk.

SUDOSCAN tests sweat gland function by applying a small direct current to both hand and foot sensor plates. At a low voltage, the stratum corneum acts as a capacitor, leaving the sweat ducts as the only channel for the transmission of Cl- ions.

SUDOSCAN provides a quantitative measure of chloride conductance (measured in microsiemens) and its results serve as a biomarker to assess sweat gland function in relation to sweat gland innervation.

A risk score according to measured conductances and patient data (hight, weight, age) is calculated:

  • Green : no risk
  • Yellow: moderate risk
  • Orange: high risk
  • Red: very high risk

EZSCAN is used around the world as a screening tool.
