Smart - LEDA: Two Tests On One Device!



The Smart - LEDA adds Sudomotor testing to the Smart-ABI with the ability to run either test or both tests at the same time. The Smart-LEDA includes the ABI test (which includes Pulse Volume Recording and 7 additional markers) and a Quantitative Sudomotor Reflex Test for PN. This test uses a constant electrical stimulation of the C-Fibers. The C-Fibers activation induces first, a microcirculation dilation and then, a sweat response. Within a matter of minutes, both tests are completed on the patient. The data is captured and a physician-friendly report is produced and ready for review by the physician.
