The term “electrodiagnostic testing” covers a whole spectrum of specialized tests, two of which are the electromyogram EMG and the nerve conduction study NCS. Many problems involving nerves or muscles require electrodiagnostic testing to provide information.
The Mediracer® NCS is intended to measure sensory and motor nerve conduction from peripheral nerves, but it is used mainly to perform CTS* and UNE** tests. The diagnostic method is sensitive (94%) and specific (98%) compared to the conventional nerve conduction studies performed by a specialist when detecting Median nerve entrapment.
Proper washing is necessary for accurate test results
The registration electrode is attached to the wrist
The stimulation electrode is first attached to the ring finger
Relax the arm. Find the stimulation level and begin the test
Diagnosis will be ready during your visit
The service allows organizations to order specialist interpretation and gives doctors opportunity to diagnose patients locally
Test results will be encrypted and sent via the internet to Mediracer Service Center for interpretation.
Organizations are able to buy interpretation from local doctors who are part of the Consultancy Service. Alternatively organizations can buy interpretation directly from us if local doctors are not available.
Neurophysiology consultants who are willing/interested in joining our Consultancy Service can create their own network in local area to give interpretation to patients.
Mediracer Ltd was founded in 2002 to develop Point of Care products in the field of clinical neurophysiology for patient examinations adapted to the needs of primary health care.
