SUDOSCAN is an autoanalyser for galvanic skin response that has been approved by the FDA to test for Peripheral Neuropathies and Sudomotor function.
SUDOSCAN evaluates sweat gland function through a process called galvanic skin response. SUDOSCAN measures the ability of the sweat glands to release chloride in response to a small electrical stimulus on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet.
SUDOSCAN’s focus on the small nerve fibers within the autonomic nervous system, and their ability to quickly regenerate, allows for the monitoring of disease progression and can help gauge if your treatment plan is right for patients.
A small electrical current is applied to both hand and foot sensor plates. The chloride ion conductance is quantified and acts as a biomarker to assess the activity of the sweat glands and the small nerve fibers that activate them.
The amount of observed asymmetry between right and left sides helps identify the type of peripheral neuropathy when utilized in conjunction with other testing parameters.
