37450 - Dynamic Plantar Aesthesiometer

The Dynamic Plantar Aesthesiometer has been designed to automate the assessment of “touch sensitivity” on the plantar surface of rats or mice and comes ready to work with both Mice and Rats.  It is known by some as the Electronic Von Frey or Plantar Von Frey instrument, but differently from Von Frey devices, Latency time, and Actual Force at the time of paw withdrawal reflex are recorded. 

Main Features:

  • Automatic detection of animal response.
  • Consistent application of force at an adjustable rate (force ramp)
  • Software included as standard
  • Data Portability: via the Memory-Key provided with the standard package
  • Print-out: by optional panel mount or independent thermal mini-printer

The new model Includes:

  • A movable touch-stimulator unit, well proven in the previous model, complete with filament actuator and adjustable angled-mirror
  • A microprocessor controlled electronic unit, new design with graphic display, internal memory for data storage, memory stick and optional printer.
  • A large testing surface
  • A new modular animal enclosure, offering from 3 to 12 spaces.
