A calibrated monofilament tester to detect diabetic foot neuropathy. The monofilament is calibrated to buckle at 10g of force. When a person cannot feel the pressure of the monofilament when applied to any surface of the foot can be an indicator of neuropathy and should be investigated by a physician. The scientific name for this tester semmes weinstein monofilament test. We include 25 refills to provide many years of use for this tester. For this test to work the monofilament must buckle at 10g of force, if it doesn't and it takes more pressure to buckle then this is a false negative test. If the monofilament buckles less than 10g of force and you don't feel it then this would result in a false positive test.
