Tuning forks are simple metal forks with two prongs that can be set vibrating. In the medical field, tuning forks are mainly used in neurology and ENT medicine. Medical tuning forks mainly help diagnose diseases like diabetes, toxic nerve damage, bacterial inflammations or hearing disorders.
In neurology, tuning forks are used to check a patient’s paraesthesia. A good tuning fork can help you diagnose declining vibratory sensation early on. This way, you can treat damages on the nervous system. The Rydel-Seiffer tuning fork test consists of placing the instrument on bony areas like ankles. If the patient feels no vibration, there may be a neuropathy. Neurological tuning forks are considered one of the most reliable and safest methods for testing a person’s sensitivity.
In audiology, you can carry out hearing test with tuning forks. It can help you diagnose hearing disorders. Some of these tests are the Weber and the Rinne one. An airborne sound travels from the external auditory canal to the eardrum. People can hear this thought in a tone/pitch. However, the patient can also hear it if the end of the tuning fork is placed on the skull bone.
