To all fellow Biomch subscribers,

I am looking for any information that concerns quantitative sensory testing, in
particular vibration testing equipment. While I have found numerous articles
concerning vibration testing itself, I am looking for information on the
instruments used. Commercial names such as biothesiometer, vibrotron, etc. are
in the literature, but I am having little success in finding these instruments.
Other commercial giants such as CASE IV, Medoc, etc. want in excess of $12000
USD.
If am preferably looking for machine that has variable amplitude, variable
frequency, and is less expensive. If anyone has ideas, equipment or advice, it
would be appreciated.
