145 – Respiratory Effort Transducer – TSD101B

The TSD101B can be used to record respiratory effort, by measuring the change in thoracic or abdominal circumference. The TSD101B is a silicone rubber strain assembly that connects to a fully adjustable nylon strap to allow the transducer to fit any circumference.

The transducer presents minimal resistance to movement and is extremely unobtrusive, making it well-suited for a variety of different applications. Due to its novel construction, the TSD101B can measure extremely slow respiration patterns with no loss in signal amplitude while maintaining excellent linearity and minimal hysteresis.

For the most current respiratory effort transducer, see TSD201.
