  1. Gender: F means female and M means man. Brush: Brushstroke directional sensation; horizontal, vertical, and rotational stimulating movement were applied (0 means recognized not at all, 1 means recognized only 1 direction, 2 means recognized 2 directions and 3 means recognized all movements)
  2. 2PD: Static 2-point discrimination; the values in parentheses are the opposite and control values
  3. SWM: The Semmens-Weinstein monofilament is composed of 20 different diameter monofilaments. 1 was assigned to the smallest-diameter and 20 was the largest-diameter monofilament. The values in parentheses are the opposite and control values
  4. Thermal: Thermal discrimination is hot and cold sensations; hot water 42 °C: cold sensation; fragment of ice 0 °C
  5. Pin prick: Sharp touch with needle. MRCS Medical research Council Scale. FSR functional sensory recovery
