Advanced Electromyography Research Solutions

Wired, wireless, and MR options for human and animal research

Multiple options for recording surface, needle, and fine wire EMG

EMG data BIOPAC AcqKnowledge

EMG Solutions for Large and Small Muscle Data

AcqKnowledge® displays, records and analyzes EMG data from human and animal subjects from large and small muscle groups, including facial EMG for analyzing facial expressions and startle paradigms. The EMG signal can be recorded using surface EMG (sEMG), needle EMG, fine wire EMG, active electrodes, telemetry, and data logging techniques. Filtering options include both real-time and post acquisition filtering for optimal conditioning of the data. Automated analysis tools identify the root mean square, average rectified and integrated EMG signal to provide an estimation of force levels.

Teaching Physiology: How to Engage Students in Lab Environments

A successful lab is one where students are fully engaged and learning the concepts—where they can achieve their goals without wasting time on equipment setup and confusing processes. Join Cindy Marolf, EdD, Nebraska Wesleyan University, as she discusses how she’s utilized the Biopac Student Lab to customize her students’ lab experience and the positive impact it has had on both her and her students. Learn about the benefits of adding a teaching solution, increasing student engagement with technology, reducing the amount of work for Professors, and options for core lessons, creating custom lessons, and scaling lessons to fit with your course curriculum.
