111 – Nerve Conduction Velocity

This application note will measure nerve conduction velocity along the ulnar nerve of a human subject. This is a standard site for nerve conduction velocity measurement due to the relatively large size of the nerve and easy access of the forearm. Other nerves may be used, however.

Note: Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) measures should use a wired setup.

  • Wireless BioNomadix have a variable timing jitter of ±0.5 ms rms, due to digital data buffering and wireless transmission, and are not recommended for NCV applications or any other physiological measurement where equivalently small timing differences are being measured; instead, BIOPAC recommends our wide range of wired amplifiers, such as EMG100C.
