Nerve Conduction Studies
Stimulate and record signals from nerves in-vivo or in-vitro; using the built-in software averaging mode, it’s possible to record signals from in-vivo nerves using skin surface electrodes only. Surface electrodes can also be used for peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) and to evaluate the effects of stimulation to motor nerve endings in terms of electrical or mechanical response. Configure stimulation sources to provide electrical, somatosensory or visual stimulation, and vary the duration and level of stimulus. In addition to the stimulator, up to 16 amplifiers can be simultaneously employed to record nerve and/or muscle responses. The system software permits easy determination of peak times and maximum responses for a variety of nerve conduction studies (NCS) and nerve conduction velocity tests (NCV).
Use the AcqKnowledge® stacked plot mode to overlap both the stimulus waveform and the response. The software allows you to advance through each of the responses and the software highlights the response and specific stimulus waveform to make it easier to determine which response relates to each stimulus waveform.
