Abstract

We have measured the vibration perception threshold (VPT) in a large number of normal subjects with the aim of producing accurate age related percentile charts to allow simple, quantitative assessment of neuropathy at the bedside. During this study we noticed that the VPT for right thumbs was often greater than for the left suggesting that in the general population right hands may be less sensitive to vibration than left hands.
