Tromed manufactures and markets total in-vitro diagnostic test strips products for the medical device industry.

Electrical nerve stimulation for back pain relief

The Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) machine is recommended by doctors, physiotherapists and pharmacists in the UK.

Back pain is the largest single reported cause of absence from work in the UK.

The TENS machine delivers small, painless electrical pulses to the body using electrodes placed on the skin, which blocks the way pain signals are sent to the brain.

The company manufactures total in-vitro diagnostic test strips products and digital blood pressure monitors.
The average value of the last three readings is shown by the automatic digital upper arm type blood pressure monitor.
Up to 90 readings are stored in the monitor, which features a large LCD display.
The oscillometric method is used to measure blood pressure.
Portable urine test strips analysers are also available, which provide results in five seconds.
Tromed’s TENS machine produces endorphins to relieve back pain.
Small electrical pulses are delivered to the body by the TENS machine through electrodes on the skin, blocking how the brain receives pain signals.
Blood, bilirubin, protein, nitrite, glucose, pH levels, and ascorbic acid are tested for by portable urine test strip analysers.

In addition, the machine stimulates the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals called endorphins, making the TENS machine highly effective.

Digital blood pressure monitors

Full automatic digital upper arm type blood pressure monitors are also available from Tromed.

The monitor measures blood pressure digitally, features a large LCD display, and shows the average value of the last three readings.

Using an oscillometric method, the monitor stores up to 90 readings, and is battery operated by four 1.5 AA batteries. The monitor measures 150mm x 102mm x 46mm, and comes in a pouch bag.

Portable urine test strip analysers

Other products available from Tromed include portable urine test strip analysers, which provide results in five seconds.

The analysers test for blood, bilirubin, urobilinogen, ketones, protein, nitrite, glucose, pH levels, leucocytes, and ascorbic acid.

The strip is dipped in urine for a few seconds, with only a short waiting time for results. Depending on the concentration of the substance, small square colour fields on the test strip change colour.

The colour of the fields can be compared against a colour table, which is available on the test packaging, and clearly shows what colours indicate normal and deviating values. Up to 1,000 test results can be saved.

Urinalysis reagent test strips

Tromed’s urinalysis reagent test strips are available in packs of 100. These strips analyse urine for blood, ketones, protein, glucose and leucocytes.

Urinalysis can be part of a routine examination, and the test can also follow a preliminary rapid urine test that produced abnormal results.

Complete urinalysis is usually conducted in a laboratory, and consists of three parts, which are:

  • Assessment of the colour, clarity and concentration of urine
  • Examination of the chemical composition with a test strip
  • Examination using a microscope to identify bacteria, cells and cell parts

Urinalysis can be used to discover the cause of urinary tract infections, bleeding in the urinary system, and kidney or liver disease.

In addition, urinalysis can be used to detect diabetes and bladder stones.
