H-Reflex Methodology

H-reflex data

The Hoffmann reflex (H-reflex) is an electrically induced reflex that bypasses the muscle spindle. H-reflex is a useful measure to assess modulation of monosynaptic reflex activity in the spinal cord.
H-reflex studies can be set up multiple ways and users should determine the best approach for their required protocol; BIOPAC cannot recommend a “standard” approach for H-reflex.

Thermal Stimulator

The STMTHERM is a thermal stimulator that can deliver both hot and cold temperature stimulation to a subject. The STMTHERM can be used to identify participant thermoreceptor response thresholds for a variety of applications. The STMTHERM consists of two parts, the Stimulator Control Unit (SCU) and the included Thermal Stimulation Transducer (TSD191 Thermode) to deliver temperature […]
