Chockalingam said, the research team plans to launch "a structured clinical trial using a gold-standard tool such as nerve conduction testing
to confirm which simple screening method best detects neuropathy."
Furthermore, night splinting alone markedly reduces symptom severity detected by nerve conduction testing
and also increases functional ability of the hand compared with that of no treatment (level of evidence, 2b).
 Early work yielded a higher sensitivity of sensory nerve conduction testing
than studies of motor axons.
Subject 8 continued to have a positive Tinel's sign at the left ulnar nerve at the wrist and elbow suggestive of a left ulnar abnormality, however, nerve conduction testing
of the left ulnar nerve was normal.
