概要 Current perception threshold (CPT) measurement is a noninvasive, easy, and semi-objective method for determining sensory function using transcutaneous electrical stimulation. Previous studies have shown that CPT is determined by physical characteristics, such as sex, age, physical sites, and presence of neuropathy. Although the CPT reported in males is clearly higher than that in females, the reason for this difference remains unclear. This study investigates the cause of sex-based differences in CPT and suggests an adjustment method, which may suppress the sex difference in CPT.We conclude that sensitivity for perceiving electrical stimulation can be influenced by the subjects’ characteristics, such as body fat or body water percentages.
