Technology principle

A dynamic non invasive test​ Impeto Medical patented technology measures the capacity of the autonomic sweat glands to release chloride ions in response to an electrochemical stimulus.  It is a dynamic test. A low voltage potential of variable amplitude is applied to sensors on regions of the skin with a high density of sweat glands (hands

Evaluation of sudomotor function

Sweat function evaluation Why evaluate sudomotor function? Sweat glands are innervated by small diameter sympathetic C-fibers. Sudomotor (sweat) dysfunction can be one of the earliest detectable neurophysiologic abnormalities in distal small fiber neuropathies. Quantitative assessment of sweat response has been proposed as an index of the severity and distribution of autonomic failure as well as

Peripheral neuropathy detection

The peripheral autonomic neuropathy is a major complication of diabetes The sweat glands are innervated by sympathetic unmyelinated nerve fibers of small diameter. Exploring the sweat function was proposed to evaluate the severity of autonomic neuropathy. [1] Neuropathic involvement of small fibers develops very early in patients with diabetes [2]. https://youtu.be/E-OqtTjQaLg We find these impairments
