Electronic Tuning Fork
Diabetes & Large Nerve Fibers
The Electronic Tuning Fork™ (ETF-128) is an FDA Registered Wireless Tool with U.S. Patents on the 64, 128, 256-Hz Frequencies that Objectively Identify and Measure Large Nerve Fibers in Peripheral Extremities Painlessly.
The128Hz tuning fork is a commonly used neurological screening test in clinical practices but it has NEVER been able to produce a vibration that is Constant, Ascending, or Descending until now, introducing the Electronic Tuning Fork (ETF-Mx) with a report.
Diabetic Large Nerve Fiber Dysfunction as Measured by Vibration Predicts Foot Ulceration, Amputation and Mortality.
Clinicians can now test patient’s sensation with the three most used frequencies in medicine, 64, 128 and 256-Hz. This multi-frequency instrument saves time and money by essentially integrating three tuning forks into one. The Electronic Tuning Fork™ (ETF-Mx) is a patented and FDA Registered medical device that was invented by a practicing American Foot and Ankle Surgeon, who developed the technology with ADA, CDC, and CMS guidelines in mind. The original ETF-128 (now DME for patients), has elevated the ETF-Mx (exclusively for clinicians), takes vibration testing to the next level and allows clinicians to measure the level of neuropathy by grading a patient’s level of sensation using the three (3) most used frequencies in medicine, 64, 128, and 256-Hz. This multi-frequency instrument saves time and money by essentially integrating three (3) tuning forks into one device.
Always Test Objectively
Diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) is a mortality risk and is an essential precursor to diabetic limb loss. Undiagnosed and untreated foot problems in people with diabetes can quickly progress with complications to foot ulcers and recurring foot ulcers, and eventually to diabetes-related lower-extremity amputations (DRLEAs). It is these amputations that bring a high level of patient mortality. Neurological screening tests, including the 128-Hz traditional tuning fork (TTF), have long been used to identify and track DPN progression, thereby guiding the implementation of preventive strategies. Although a traditional tuning fork is a sensitive indicator of neuropathy, its shortcomings include the lack of objectivity, standardization, and quantification. The Electronic Tuning Fork™ (ETF-Mx) overcomes the limitations of a traditional tuning fork (TTF) by providing the objectivity, uniformity, and quantification of clinical findings.

According to ADA, foot problems including ulceration and amputation, account for more hospital admissions for patients with diabetes than any other long-term complication. Ulceration is usually precipitated by trauma in the presence of neuropathy and/or ischemia. Foot ulceration and amputation can be prevented by up to 78% with early identification and effective management. Despite calls by the World Health Organization and the U.S. government to reduce lower-limb amputation, it remains a major burden on health care resources with high postoperative mortality, a high rate of secondary amputation, and prolonged inpatient stay.
