CLEANWHEEL Neuro Pinwheel
Sterile, Latex Free Disposable Pinwheel Replaces Wartenberg Pinwheel
Today, doctors continue to use non-sterile metal pinwheels, safety pins or paper clips for sensitivity testing. These practices bring up serious cross-infection ramifications regarding both topical and bloodborn pathogens as well as reliability concerns with patient response to testing.
I quote, NEUROLOGY 1991, Vol.41:344, Fenelli, M.D., “Medical Schools should assume the responsibility of discontinuing the sale of reflex hammers with built-in pin/pinwheels in their bookstores. This, likewise applies to similar instruments used to test superficial pain sensation such as the Wartenberg pinwheel.”
In 1993, Doctor Cheyenn and Kao published the following…
The patented CLEANWHEEL is fully assembled, sterile and latex free to protect against cross-infection. Developed in compliance with OSHA’s Bloodborn Pathogen Standard, (Title 8 section 5193, California Code of Regulations) the disposable CLEANWHEEL has its place right next to the tongue blades in every exam room, ambulance and doctor’s bag worldwide.
