Development and Application of an Improved Thermal Dolorimeter
The thermal dolorimeter of W Hardyl has been used to measure thermal pain threshold (Fig 1). The original model is accurate but has the following drawbacks:
Measurements must be repeated to determine the thermal pain threshold
It is too large and requires elaborate preparation of the subjects being investigated.
