Quantitative sensory testing

Quantitative sensory testing (QST)

This project's aim is to develop a standardized protocol for sensory tests allowing to measure pain. This standardization in tests and data acquisation among healthy and chronic pain patients is a concerted initiative between all the pain research facilities across the province of Quebec. Overall, this project will allow the monitoring of normative data leading to the development of standardized multicentered research projects using repeatable and validated protocols.
