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.

Eye Tracking Glasses ETV

The ETVision (ETV) wearable unit resembles an eyeglasses frame that can be worn by itself or over the participant’s prescription eyeglasses. It contains miniature “eye cameras” that view each eye and a “scene camera” that views the scene in front of the participant, and a microphone. An optional visor can be mounted to the front […]
