Increase subject comfort and minimize cumbersome wiring
Comfortable acquisition hardware, industry-leading analysis software
Now researchers can record body movement data for extended periods or trigger recordings when movement occurs (e.g., karate kick), in both laboratory and field environments, with advanced biomechanical data acquisition and analysis systems from BIOPAC. Input and analyze data from force plates and synchronize measurements with video capture equipment. Scroll through either the physiological data or video and watch the corresponding linked data move to the same location. Perform real-time calculations and post-collection analysis, including X/Y plotting. Use markers to log events as they occur, then add comments immediately of later.
Use a variety of wireless options to provide subjects with a greater degree of freedom, including options for 32 channels of wireless EMG. Track subjects and synchronize the data with GPS to really understand their location and environment. The wireless wearable solutions increase the complexity of experimental design and permit the study of subjects in their natural environment.
Monitor multiple subjects and display their data simultaneously.
Works efficiently with subjects performing anaerobic exercises because it eliminates the masses of cabling usually attached to the subject.
Record of a variety of biomechanical data. Maximum acceleration, angle of limb movement, and the time of heel and toe strikes can be calculated in real time.

Simultaneously acquire up to 16 channels of wireless gait-specific data, including heel-toe, goniometry, accelerometry and more. One setup might incorporate two channels for heel/toe strike timing, ten channels for EMG signals and four channels of goniometry data. Event markers let users log important events in the data and include comments during or post acquisition.
Range Of Motion
Use AcqKnowledge® to determine the velocity of motion occurring during physical activity. All parts of the body can be evaluated for range of motion for purposes of injury assessment or flexibility quantification. Goniometers are available for evaluating one or two degrees of freedom from the same joint (e.g. wrist flexion/extension and radial/ulnar deviations). Use the X/Y plotting feature to inspect motion resulting from two degrees of freedom. Place torsiometers along the spine to measure twisting along the spinal axis. To determine maximum extension and flexion of the digits, place miniature goniometers on the back of fingers. Determine velocity of motion by using AcqKnowledge® to perform a derivative on the recorded movement data, and then run a second derivative on the data to calculate acceleration.
Isometric and Isotonic Contraction
Isolate a wide range of muscle groups and evaluate contraction characteristics. For additional insight, acquire EMG data during isotonic force measurement.
BIOPAC now offers multi-subject video monitoring systems. The new camera systems record multiple subjects and camera angles, and AcqKnowledge® Media functionality synchronizes the video to the data. High frame rate (100 fps), multi-subject, and standard USB cameras triggered by the AcqKnowledge® Stimulator are also supported.
Use AcqKnowledge® to import and synchronize a subject’s physical location with experiment data to provide a log of travel which can then be correlated to the recorded physical responses.
