Description

Wartenberg Pinwheel, Sensitivity Testing Tool

    ⇒  Smooth running pinwheel

    ⇒  Made from medical-grade stainless steel

►  The Wartenberg Pinwheel is a small sensitivity testing tool originally designed by Robert Wartenberg.

►  It consists of a fixed handle bar and a small rotating wheel covered in pins.


 
Product Details:

  • Chequered handle for a secure grip
  • Small, smooth-running wheel
  • Made from medical-grade stainless steel
  • Non-corrosive
  • Can be disinfected and sterilised

 
Application:

  • In order to diagnose a condition, the Wartenberg pinwheel is slowly rolled over the affected skin areas and the patient is to describe the sensation. Therefore, the pressure and pain stimuli can be graded in terms of severity. The pins on the Wartenberg pinwheel are sharp enough to stimulate specific points without penetrating the skin. 

 
For hygienic reasons, we recommend disinfecting the pins and the wheel after each use with a patient.
