Wartenberg Pinwheel, Sensitivity Testing Tool


The Wartenberg Pinwheel is a small sensitivity testing tool originally designed by Robert Wartenberg. It consists of a fixed handle bar and a small rotating wheel covered in pins.


Wartenberg pinwheel product details

  • Chequered handle for a secure grip
  • Small smooth-running wheel
  • Made from medical-grade stainless steel
  • Non-corrosive
  • Can be disinfected and sterilised


In order to diagnose a condition, the Wartenberg pinwheel is rolled slowly over the affected skin areas and the patient describes the sensation. The pressure and pain stimuli can thus be graded in terms of their severity. The pins on the Wartenberg pinwheel are sharp enough to stimulate specific points but do not penetrate the skin.
For hygienic reasons, we recommend disinfecting the pins, in particular, as well as the wheel after each use on a patient.
