The Wartenberg Pinwheel by Fabrication Enterprises is a medical device that is used by neurologists to test a patient's reaction to stimuli. The stimulus is presented on the skin and is usually directed to specific dermatomes. The Wartenberg Pinwheel is made of metal. It can be sterilized in boiling water before each use for hygienic purposes. This pinwheel is made of durable metal, has radial spikes that test the patient's reaction to arousal, tests the nerve endings on each of the dermatomes found on the body and is an indispensable part of a neurologist's testing kit. The Wartenberg Pinwheel is 7" long and produces a unique, tingling sensation that serves to stimulate the patient.
