First, with our initial consult and exam using our NeuroMetrix DPN device we can assess the velocity/amplitude of the nerve function which gives us a printed read out to help set protocols for each patient and their plan of care. This helps us detect the earliest signs and stages of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy which is the start to provide relief of the symptoms.
