    Diabetic patients and their doctors have to be proactive when it comes to preventing a small injury from becoming a major medical foot problem. Loss of protective sensation (LOPS) is a significant medical neuropathy concern among diabetic patients and their physicians. Testing diabetic patients for LOPS is crucial for preventing foot ulcers that can lead to amputation.

    Approved for single patient use, our Semmes Weinstein 5.07 monofilament test for diabetic neuropathy presents an easy, inexpensive test to predict a patient’s risk for developing LOPS. They are calibrated to deliver the standard 10-gram force range. Screening a patient for LOPS using the Semmes Weinstein neuropathy skin test is simple and non-invasive for adults, children and seniors. Save money for your practice by ordering your diabetic foot neuropathy tests in bulk from Atlas Biomechanics.
