The NIBP100A is a noninvasive blood pressure monitor that uses a pressure sensor placed on the wrist over the radial artery. This device uses a “sweep technique,” which applies a varying force on the radial artery. The counter-pressure in the artery produces a signal which is digitized and used to calculate blood pressure parameters. With just a few easy calibration steps, the NIBP100A and AcqKnowledge work together to provide automated, continuous, noninvasive blood pressure measurements.
fNIR Imaging Systems are stand-alone functional brain imaging solutions for continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS). They provide an in-lab cognitive function assessment and eliminate a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI. fNIR optical imaging technology measures neural activity and hemodynamic response in the prefrontal cortex. Subjects wear an fNIR sensor (IR light sources […]

Questionnaire: Alan Macy,” provided a background excerpt of the Santa Barbara entrepreneurs’ past as well as his answers to the Proust Questionnaire. The biomedical technology developed at BIOPAC reflects an ambitious […]
Physiological researchers have been studying the lower body through examining impacts of training, movement instruction, and innovative research measurements on an individual’s well being. The following articles represent recent developments in physiological research, moving our understanding of lower limbs and the body as a whole forward, one step at a time. The Importance of Form Improper […]
