"The NERVEPACE Electroneurometer was utilized to investigate its utility in comprehensive measurement of the upper extremity. This instrument measures motor latency of the median nerve at the wrist. Slowed motor latency is a later indicator of nerve compromise than sensory nerve conduction, but the latter measurement is not a practical on-site, voluntary assessment. Administration followed instructions in the instrument manual and those described by Rosier and Blair (1984). Ten trials were administered and the values recorded. If a variation of >0.4 was observed, the trials were repeated. The criterion value for abnormal findings represented the tenth percentile, based on the reported average latencies and standard deviations."
