Abstract The authors describe a new test for clinical sensibility, initiated in response to the need of the senior author for a rapid, reliable method to evaluate sensibility. Using this test, the patient develops a ratio between normal light moving touch and diminished moving touch. Subsequent determinations can detect serial changes. The ratios obtained can be compared with a standard scale of sensibility with a high degree of validity and reliability. The interexaminer and intraexaminer results obtained are reliable and repeatable. Statistical evaluations substantiating the validity of the test are presented. Simplicity and depend-ability recommend this test for use in a busy clinical setting.
