Bailey Instruments advises replacement after testing 10,000 times. If you use 5 sites per foot in your assessment, this is 10 sites per patient. Therefore you need to replace your monofilament after` 1000 patients have been tested. Another consideration found by Booth & Young is that the monofilament’s accuracy is maintained if allowed to rest. Their advice is to use one monofilament in the morning, and a different one in the afternoon. Ideally, in clinical practice you should alternate between two monofilaments.
