Today marks the fifth anniversary of Curian Medical.  All of us here wanted to take this opportunity to thank our customers, suppliers, experts and all contacts for their continued support.

The industry continues to be an ever changing environment and we very much look forward to continuing to work closely and supporting our customers with our ever expanding portfolio of nationwide rehabilitation services.

Congratulations Curian Medical, lets look forward to many more years to come.

Nerve Conduction Studies

As part of our suite of rehabilitation services here at Curian Medical we have an extensive network of venues in which we can co-ordinate Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS).  Utilising appropriate experts and Neurophysiologists we deliver this timely service at an affordable fee on a nationwide basis.

What are nerve conduction studies?

Nerve conduction studies give doctors information about how well and how fast the nerves in your body send waves of electricity (electrical impulses). This test can be used to check for various different types of problems with the peripheral nervous system. The peripheral nervous system includes all the nerves in your body apart from those in your brain and within the spinal cord itself. Nerves in the brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system.

What are nerve conduction studies typically used for?

Here at Curian Medical Nerve conduction studies are used for a wide variety of reasons including:

  • To assess nerve damage following an injury
  • To check for damage to nerves, caused by conditions such as diabetes
  • To test for conditions affecting the nervous system
  • To check for ‘trapped’ nerves – conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome

How does it work?

Small electrical pulses made by a machine are used to mimic the electrical signals made by nerves. By attaching a small device that is able to detect electricity or supply electricity (an electrode) to the skin, the nerve can be stimulated with a very small electrical pulse. If the nerve is attached to a muscle, the muscle will clench (contract) in response to the electrical signal.

To test sensory nerves, the electrodes are usually attached to the fingers or toes with another electrode either at the ankle or wrist. When the electrical pulse is applied to the fingers or toes the sensory nerve carries the electrical signal away from the arm or leg. The electrode at the wrist or ankle detects the wave of electricity (electrical impulse) when it reaches that point.

The electrodes are connected to a machine which generates the impulses and detects them. It can measure the time taken for the impulse to travel in the nerve from the first electrode to the second. This information, plus the distance between the two electrodes, can be used to work out the speed at which the impulse is travelling along the nerve. This is referred to as the conduction velocity.

Nerve conduction studies can also be used to measure whether the size of the waves of electricity (electrical impulses) decreases as it travels along the nerve.

Are there any possible side-effects or complications?

Most people tolerate the test very well and have no side-effects or complications after the test.

To learn more about our network for nerve conduction studies or indeed any other aspect of our portfolio of services please do feel free to contact Amanda O’Neill on 07904 630054.

We look forward to hearing from you.

When Harry met Curian Medical

Over the years Curian Medical have developed numerous apprentices and taken part in multiple work placements, some of whom have left to go on to full time employment or enhanced careers as a result. We are delighted to announce that Harry Goodwin has now finished his apprenticeship and is continuing his employment with Curian Medical, training to become a case handler.

We asked Harry some questions surrounding his time during his apprenticeship and what he hopes the future holds.

So Harry, what have you enjoyed during your time as an apprentice with Curian Medical?

The things I have enjoyed most about my time as an apprentice here at Curian Medical is that I have had the chance to work with and meet some amazing people as well as have the opportunity to acquire new skills as a business administrator.

What have you learnt during your placement?

Working with Curian has provided me with an opportunity to gain further knowledge in a variety of different areas and has exposed me to a busy working environment.  I have developed good communication skills and regularly speak with patients, consultants, healthcare experts and customers over the telephone.  I have worked within the Curative Team and this has helped my confidence grow significantly. I have also learnt how to organise my day and as a result I am now able to manage my own workload more efficiently.

Would you recommend an apprenticeship scheme?

Yes, I would definitely recommend an apprenticeship scheme. It is a great way for young people like myself to take the first step into the world of work.

What hopes and plans do you have for your role within Curian Medical and the future?

I look forward to working here at Curian Medical and improving as a person whilst having the ability to continually learn and develop. The fantastic opportunities here stand me in great stead to become a professional young man.

Congratulations Harry from all of us here at Curian Medical.

Curian Medical – Providing Solutions

Curian Medical – Providing Solutions within the personal injury sector for affordable diagnostic imaging services

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used frequently within the medico-legal sector and is particularly useful at providing highly detailed images together with valuable and accurate information about the structure of joints, soft tissue and bones of the body.

Just some of the advantages of using this imaging technique include;

  • MRI is harmless for the patient – no radiation is involved
  • Excellent detail makes MRI superior to some of the other imaging techniques available
  • MRI contrast agent (where required) is usually gadolinium which is less allergenic than iodine based contrast agents used in other imaging modalities

It is widely known that there are disadvantages to MRI scanning, however here at Curian Medical we have worked hard to put in place solutions for our customers;

  • Availability – We have developed one of the largest networks throughout the country ensuring patients no longer have to travel far for diagnostic imaging
  • Affordability – Curian Medical have implemented fixed fees for our customers in order that our diagnostic imaging services are cost effective and competitive
  • Results –  Excellent working relationships within our network ensures appointments and results are provided at the earliest opportunity ultimately speeding up any further treatments or rehabilitation that may be required
  • Contra-indications – Whilst we understand that not everyone is compatible for an MRI scan, we have protocols in place to ensure that each patient completes a safety questionnaire prior to imaging.  Where necessary Curian Medical can co-ordinate alternative imaging techniques or co-ordinate any further investigations, such as x-rays to ensure no contra-indications exist.
  • Open scanners – We appreciate due to anxiety or claustrophobia that not all patients will be suitable for a conventional MRI scanner.  With this in mind Curian Medical have developed access to a number of Open MRI scanners across the country.

If you encounter any barriers to nationwide diagnostic imaging services then do feel free to give me a call on 07904 630054 or email me at aoneill@curianmedical.co.uk I would welcome an opportunity to provide you with solutions.
