Medical Monofilament is an innovative, woman owned and operated company, producing sensory testing monofilaments. We are the first manufacturer of a paper-handled monofilament that guarantees to meet the 10-gram force range established by the Gillis W. Long Hansen's Disease Center. Monofilaments are a reliable, cost effective method of testing for the presence or absence of protective sensation, thereby identifying patients at risk of developing diabetic foot ulcers. Monofilaments are "user friendly", enabling patients to actively participate in their care. Sensory testing used in conjunction with ongoing physician care is a simple way to help decrease the incidence of foot ulcerations and amputations.
