The Wagner FPIX™ Digital Algometer provides pain diagnostic testing with digital clarity and computer interface for data logging.

 

Pressure algometry is a reliable measure of pain in muscle, joints, tendons, and ligaments.The FPIX proves benefits of applied medication, physiotherapy or manipulation.

As treatment progresses, the FPIX quantifies improvements or setbacks. Pain threshold measurements provide unique information not obtainable by any other method. The objective measurements give reassurance to patients by confirming their improvement.

Pain Threshold

The minimum pressure that induces pain in tender and trigger points of tissue. The FPIX quantitatively assesses the tenderness of hypersensitive areas. The FPIX 25 with 10 gram sensitivity is most popular for pain threshold testing, determination of the minimum pressure that triggers pain at the point of interest.

Pain Tolerance

The point where painful pressure stimulus cannot be tolerated. The FPIX assesses pain sensitivity for maximum tolerated pressure.
