This paper presents a patented smart point-of-care testing (POCT) system for the diagnosis and grading of peripheral neuropathy at the patient’s home or care center. The device aims to detect changes or worsening of a patient’s neuropathy. Our system utilizes the vibration motor within a smart-phone, applied through a 3D printed probe attachment to detect sensation loss in vibration sensitivity threshold (VST). A smartphone app displays several neuropathy questionnaires to the user to identify and monitor changes in their condition. This paper presents results from comparison between the new smart device and the gold standard Neurothesiometer. Results suggest that the new device performs closely to the gold standard in terms of the frequency and amplitude of vibration.
