The Professional Neurological Examination Pin
– a single-use precision instrument
Medipin is a unique and patented single-use cutaneous pinprick tester designed to promote accuracy and safety. An annulus surrounds the faceted point to safely intensify perception of the sharp stimulus through a central nervous system enhancement phenomenon called lateral inhibition and serves to standardize point pressure and improve test consistency by limiting skin penetration and risk of puncture – especially on fragile skin.
Combined with an intuitive design to facilitate ease of handling Medipin’s annulus also offers protection against self-inflicted 'needle-stick' cross-infection and the point is readily eliminated by simple compression against a hard surface where conventional disposal is not possible.
The spherical head and bright red colour makes it a useful visual testing aid and plastic construction ensures unusually long shelf life. A dedicated tool at exceptional value supplied in boxes of 100 sterilized Medipins.
In summary Medipin seeks to offer:
|Neurophysiologically enhanced pinprick stimulus for consistently superior response at reduced application pressures even in existing neuropathy.|
|Enhanced infection control by shielding and inhibiting penetration of the point.|
The standard to be
judged by for safer, consistently precise diagnosis,
offering greater accuracy, security and convenience.
