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.
BIOPAC is introducing Biopac Student Lab Home (BSL HOME)—a new product specifically geared towards teaching physiology labs remotely so students can still get hands-on, practical lab experience if social distancing and stay-at-home orders keep them out of the lab..
BSL HOME will allow your students to conduct physiology labs in the safety of their own home, dorm room, or any remote location.

Comparing Muscle Movement and Involvement between Boxing Punches In the fast-paced, high-intensity combat sport of boxing, the right punch can win a fight. However, boxing is also a sport where opponents can become exhausted in mere minutes of action, and prioritizing their strength is key to winning a fight. This team recorded EMG on test […]
