A better, faster and more professional way for recording hand sensation assessments.

ABOUT SensationAx

We created this app for our health professional colleagues

Being full-time clinicians we want to make our practice better, faster and more professional. With this in mind we developed an electronic method for recording sensation assessments using Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments or Weinstein Enhanced Sensory Test (WEST) monofilaments. As SensationAx took shape we realised that it could contribute to our community of health professionals and were keen to make it easily available to our colleagues.

We feel it is important that SensationAx is free to use. As a result there are advertisements on SensationAx to help support its development and ongoing improvements. Don’t worry the advertisements won’t pop up or get in the road when recording your results.



SensationAx is the only product that allows clinicians to electronically document a sensation assessment. It is a better, faster and more professional way to record your patients sensation.
