"In these trials, the electroneurometer has demonstrated its potential usefulness as an accurate diagnostic tool. The results of this study strongly suggest that it provides an accurate measurement of the distal motor latency and that this value can be used to make an accurate diagnosis. Moreover, the ease with which the electroneurometer study can be performed makes it an ideal tool with which to study the progress of a patient over time or to screen a large group of patients (situations where more formal nerve studies may not be indicated). This study has demonstrated its accuracy in monitoring the progress of patients following surgical carpal tunnel release. In this respect, the accuracy and versatility of the electroneurometer make it useful for a wide range of clinical situations in which it provides a cheap, safe and convenient alternative to formal nerve conduction studies and EMGs."
