You benefit from this 3-minute painless test that evaluates sweat gland function. Test results are used to indicate when a patient is at risk of autonomic dysfunction, diabetic neuropathy, Parkinson’s disease, Fabry disease, and polyneuropathy from chemotherapy or the familial amyloid. Diabetic patients particularly benefit from this technology, as the data can be used to prevent diabetic foot ulcers. This diagnostic tool is a step up from the alternative – a painful 1-hour nerve conduction study. Podiatrists get the same results in less time and with no discomfort to you.
Also known as Vascular Testing and Arterial Doppler studies, this process measures circulation and can be used to diagnose PAD, or Peripheral Arterial Disease. PAD is a progressive disease caused by a buildup of cholesterol and can result in arterial blockage. Deep infections can occur, and surgery to widen or replace the artery may be necessary when there is inadequate blood flow, in addition to other more drastic measures. The FloChec sensor is an additional arterial modality that is placed on extremities for 15 seconds each to measure blood volume. It is used to provide podiatrists and patients with early warning that there is abnormal blood flow. Results are available instantly.
