Tilt Table

The WR Tilt Table is a useful tool for Cardiac (HRV) and Full Autonomic Function labs, giving the ability to perform head-up tilt testing.

The WR Tilt Table provides near effortless evaluation of patients presenting with syncope and dizziness. Designed specifically for autonomic testing, this table has a rapid tilt (0 to 70 degrees in 9 seconds). There is a wide choice of positions for a clinician to choose for patient testing, including a -12 degree Trendelenberg position. Up to three pre-set tilt angles can be programmed into the programmable tilt control hand switch, which are then available at the push of a button.

Transitioning from supine to vertical positions is smooth, thanks to a powerful electromechanical drive. The WR Tilt

Table also includes a removable footboard for stress free patient access and 2 restraining belts for comfort and safety. The WR Tilt Table is ergonomically designed with both clinician ease and patient comfort in mind.

Hilger H3

Making a reliable prognosis in early stages of acute facial paralysis is difficult. Because the rate of regeneration is related to the degree and rate of denervation, serial electrical tests are often performed. The Hilger Model H3 is an effective and economical method of clinical evaluation for patients with facial paralysis.

Electrodiagnostic testing for patients with facial paralysis.

MAXIMAL STIMULATION TEST (MST)
Recording sites of the frontal, orbital, and marginal branches of the facial nerve are selected. The stimulator is applied to the nerve branch at that intensity which produces a just-visible twitch. The current is then increased to one-to two mA above the threshold to obtain a supramaximal response. Each branch is stimulated on both the affected and non-affected side of the face, and response is compared.

NERVE EXCITABILITY TEST (NET)
Upper and lower divisions of the facial nerve are selected for stimulation. Current is applied in increasing amounts until the onset of twitching of one or more of the facial muscles. The difference between the normal and paralyzed sides indicates the degree of denervation.

CASE IV QST lab

The CASE IV QST lab focuses on the testing of sensory abnormalities in the areas of temperature change sensation, vibration, and pain threshold testing.
Safe and proven testing patterns developed at the Mayo Clinic® assist in the assessment of sensory abnormalities due to neurologic disease, help in the determination of type of dysfunctional fibers, and quantitatively verify the effectiveness of small and large unmyelinated nerve fibers.

The CASE IV QST lab utilizes two stimulators to determine sensory threshold. Patient responses to safe, effective stimuli are used to generate a sensory threshold level which are then compared to reference data available with the WR TestWorks software.

The CASE IV QST lab includes stimulators, patient instruction cards for clear, concise, and standardized instruction, a patient supply kit, an equipment cart, and a computer running the WR TestWorks software with printer. Get more functionality from your lab by adding a Q-Sweat or Cardiac system. On-site installation and training is included for all labs in the United States and Canada.

About us

Company details

Autonomic and peripheral neuropathies affect nerves that manage every day body functions such as blood pressure, heart rate, bowel and bladder emptying, digestion, and the ability to feel sensation.

Autonomic and peripheral neuropathies can be acquired or hereditary. The degree and type of involvement varies extensively, and can range from subclinical or clinically irrelevant symptoms to those that are disabling. Symptoms may include constipation, nausea, diarrhea, shortness of breath with exercise or activity, dizziness when standing, abnormal sweating, heat or cold intolerance, and urinary incontinence.

Testing in a standardized, recognized, and quantified way is the necessary step between recognizing symptoms and providing proper treatment. And that’s why physicians and researchers world-wide rely on WR Medical Electronics Co. for scientifically validated equipment and exceptional support.

WR Medical Electronics Co. is a privately-held company located near St. Paul Minnesota. Our customers have enjoyed our quality products and superior service since 1962.

It has been our privilege to collaborate with world-renowned physicians in the neurology field, such as Peter J. Dyck and Phillip A. Low, both of Rochester, MN, on innovative products for the assessment of peripheral sensory thresholds and autonomic function testing.

We intend to continue to work closely with other physicians and practitioners on original and marketable ideas to advance the study and practice of neurophysiology. Our commitment to quality control and customer satisfaction is evident in all we do. Please contact us for more information on any of our products. We look forward to hearing from you.
