Context: NCS assess peripheral nerve functions & their parameters. It used to diagnosis of peripheral nerve disorders. So propose of study to establish normative values of Tibial & Peroneal NCV in healthy individuals.
Aims: determine nerve conduction data among asymptomatic, healthy individuals.
Objective: 1. Comparison of NCV between right, left & Gender of Peroneal & Tibial nerve. 2. To find out age matched NCV & comparisons among each group
Settings and Design: It was observational study conduct in Neuro Rehabilitation unit include 100 healthy individuals of age groups of 20-60 yr of either sex. The Purposive sampling technique was used.
Methods and Material: The protocol includes bilateral motor nerve conduction velocity of Tibial & Peroneal nerve; under standard laboratory condition by using RMS machine.
Statistical analysis used: The documented data was analyzed by using Stander Error Between Two Mean & Z test.
Results: As z values of right & left of Peroneal & Tibial Nerve 0.28 &1.8 respectively (p<0.05).
As z values of male &female of Peroneal & Tibial Nerve 0.28 &1.8 respectively, (p<0.05).
Age matched MNCV of age group 50-59 were shows highly significance as compare with Age Group 20-29, 30-39, 40-49.
Conclusions: Side wise & gender wise no statically significance difference was found in MNCV. However in age matched, MNCV of Group D reduced & statically significant as compare to other groups A, B & C groups.
