For years, cardiologists examined paper charts of ECG signals to create an averaged ECG complex. They took each individual cardiac cycle, measured each part of the complex with a ruler, wrote down each value, and calculated the means to derive an averaged ECG complex. As you can imagine (or have experienced), this task took a great deal of time and patience. When the need arose to analyze two or more different scenarios (e.g., baseline response), the task had to be performed even more carefully, to accurately comparison of the ECG.
The AcqKnowledge software has a powerful averaging feature that automatically derives an averaged signal from a specific number of cycles (averaging is found in the Peak Detection menu). And, you can easily compare two, three, or more averaged ECG signals with just a few mouse clicks.
Psychophysiology - Record and analyze BP, ECG, HRV, EDA, EMG, EEG, EOG, RSP, etc. Interface to stimulus presentation programs...use automated analysis routines to easily score and analyze data.
ICG: Impedance Cardiography/Cardiac Output - Record cardiac output, thoracic impedance changes, or any kind of bioimpedance signal. Use AcqKnowledge for a fully automated ICG analysis and dZ/dt waveform classifier.
ECG: Cardiology - Connect up to 16 ECG input leads with MP160 system. Use automated analysis features for HRV, RSA, to classify heartbeats, identify arrhythmias, and perform ECG averaging.
Cardiovascular Hemodynamics - Hardware for human and animals. Measure continuous BP, ECG, stroke volume, cardiac output, PPG, etc. For animal and tissue look at acute and chronic dose-response.
In vitro Pharmacology - Record from tissue bath, isolated organ, Ussing chamber, or use field stimulation. Advanced algorithms analyze Langendorff, working heart, and isolated perfused lung data.
Exercise Physiology - Examine ventilation, oxygen uptake, carbon dioxide production, biopotentials, temp., and biomechanical signals simultaneously. Record wirelessly with BioNomadix.
Remote Monitoring - BioNomadix modules provide high quality, full-bandwidth data for a variety of signals—ECG, EEG, EGG, EMG, EOG, PPG, RSP, SKT, Accelerometry, Cardiac Output, Dynamometry, and Heel-Toe Strike.
