Features & Description
  • TESTS PAIN THRESHOLD
  • TESTS PAIN TOLERANCE
  • TESTS TRIGGER & TENDER POINTS
  • MONITORS TREATMENT PROGRESS
 

The Wagner Pain Test™ Model FPK Algometeris the worldwide preferred threshold and pain tolerance gage of physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists and other health practitioners. Pressure algometry has been proven a valid measure of localized pain in muscle, joints, tendons, ligaments and bones.

The FPK proves to the patient, health practitioner or insurance companies, the benefits of the medication, physiotherapy or applied manipulation.

As treatment progresses, the FPK quantifies improvements or setbacks. Pain threshold measurements provide unique information not obtainable by any other method. This documentation can be used for clinical and research purposes. For patients, the objective measurements give reassurance, confirming their improvement.

Pain Threshold

The minimum pressure which induces pain in tender and trigger points of tissue. The FPKquantitatively assesses the tenderness over hypersensitive areas. The FPK lower capacities are used for pain threshold testing. The lower range is appropriate for determining the minimum pressure that triggers pain at the point of interest.

Pain Tolerance

The point where a painful pressure stimulus can no longer be tolerated. The FPK, assesses pain-pressure sensitivity of muscle for maximum tolerated pressure. The higher capacities are used for pain tolerance testing. The wider range is necessary for comparative tests between a normal sensitivity control point and the area of interest.

Pressure Pad - An optional accessory used alternately or in addition to the 1 cm² rubber tip. The patient is active, pressing the foot, leg or arm against the pressure pad toevaluate pain threshold or pain tolerance.
