Electronic Tuning Fork

ETF Electrical Chassis ETF In Hand

ETF Powered On ETF Actuator

O’Brien Medical partnered with The Maine Technology Institute (MTI) and the AMC to develop a modern testing device for diabetic peripheral neuropathy, or damaged or deteriorating nerves in the feet of diabetics.  The condition all too often can lead to foot ulcers and eventual foot amputation.  The current practice of using tuning forks is subjective leaves too much room for human error.  This device will eliminate the guesswork, and produce consistent results from user to user.
