In 15 Minutes Identify Patients At Risk for Sudden Death, Silent Heart Attack, Hypertension Cardiac Autonomic Neuropathy, Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy, Vascular Abnormalities, Orthostatic Hypotension, Syncope and other Hidden Diseases Testing of the Autonomic Nervous System.
VitalScan ANS System provides comprehensive, fully automated Autonomic Function Testing (ANS) equipment that is useful for physicians to gauge their patientís health and uncover hidden disease.
SudoCheck evaluates sweat gland function through a process called galvanic skin response. SudoCheck measures the ability of the sweat glands to release chloride ions in response to a small electrical stimulus.
Quantitative Sudomotor Axon Reflex Test (QSART) evaluate the integrity of the postganglionic sudomotor system along the axon reflex to define the distribution of sweat loss. The QSART measures the autonomic nerves that control sweating.
SudoCheckís focus on the small nerve fibers within the autonomic nervous system, and their ability to quickly regenerate.
VitalScan ANS System
The VitalScan ANS System is a clinically powerful and easy to use non-invasive system to test for hidden diseases. In 15 minutes identify clinical autonomic disorders and uncover major illness and health risks including:
Testing of the autonomic nervous system is a recommended standard of care by the American Diabetes Association for patients with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
VitalScan ANS Features and Benefits
- Easily adaptable towards general and specific requirements of almost all medical branches.
- Presents a quick and reliable supplementary assessment of basic health risk factors.
- Assesses the balance between the activities of the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system.
- Reliably discovers ventricular and superventricular extra systoles.
- Assesses autonomic physical dysregulation, accumulated physical and mental stress.
- Assesses physical training needs based upon an individual's personal cardiovascular fitness levels.
- Reveals development of possible health risks.
- Provides early indications of health risks for quick detection and prevention of illness, disease, and progressive stress conditions before onset and development.
- Efficiently screen mass population to detect potential risks and reserve costly, full medical checkups for only those exhibiting health threats.

SudoCheck ia a Clinical Powerful Easy To Use Non-Invasive System
In 15 Minutes Identify Patients At Risk:
Small nerve fibers are the very first victims of diabetes, which is known to affect the peripheral nervous system even symptoms remain sub-clinical.
According to a recent study, already at an early stage of the diabetes evolution, the sympathetic innervation of eccrine sweat glands is progressively reduced. Irrespective of temperature and physical exercise, this alteration of the sweat glands' autonomous control causes a longlasting shift in the ionic balance of sweat conducts.
- Useful in assessing autonomic nervous system disorders
- Sudomotor test provides information early that determines the cardiometabolic risk in patients
- Sudomotor test for early detecting diabetic neuropathy, especially painful diabetic neuropathy
- Analyze and test SudoCheck's responsiveness and accuracy in detecting diabetic neuropathy and compare it with existing standardized tests for the diagnosis of diabetic neuropathy.
- Evaluate SudoCheck in patients with Diabetes Mellitusm, as an instrument to assess autonomic neuropathy and neuropathic pain.
- SudoCheck is an innovative, sensitive tool for the detection of diabetic neuropathy, especially painful diabetic neuropathy. As sweat glands are innervated by small c fibers, which are also involved in pain pathways, precise measuring of the sweat gland function can identify that cause.
- SudoCheck, a sensitive device to detect neuropathy in patients with diabetes mellitus, operates with a high sensitivity and specificity.
- When compared to non-painful neuropathy, feet BEC was significantly decreased in patients with painful diabetic neuropathy.
- These results suggest that the peripheral autonomic nervous system plays a role in painful diabetic neuropathy.
- SudoCheck results correlated significantly with clinical neuropathy scores, pain scores and measures of autonomic dysfunction.
Intended Use Is To Diagnose:
- For use by general practitioners, pharmacists, cardiologist, neurologist and pain medicine
- To assist in the effective screening of cardiometabolic risk in patients
- Painful, small fiber neuropathy when nerve conduction test results are normal
- Disturbances of the autonomic nervous system which controls the sweat glands, heard, digestive system, other organs, and blood pressure
- Complex pain disorders
- Diabetic neuropathies
- Enzyme disorders
- RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy)
- Pharmaceutical agents
