Record surface EMG data to investigate the properties of skeletal muscle. Record and display raw and integrated EMG signals; overlap the signals for better correlation of the data. Measure strength and repeat trials for motor unit recruitment, summation and fatigue. Use the reflex hammer transducer to study reflex response (neural control), or add the dynamometer to study handgrip strength profiles. Use the finger twitch transducer for threshold, summation, tetanus and fatigue analysis.
Design muscular biofeedback experiments by selecting different types of muscles and variations of contractions/activities relating to biofeedback that the subject will perform; measure changes in surface EMG with maximal contraction, as compared to baseline, incorporating different combinations of visual and auditory feedback (see BSL PRO Lesson H36).
Students can listen to the muscle activity through headphones and note the increase in sound intensity as grip strength is increased.
|Disposable Long-term Electrodes||These disposable, long-term recording, snap electrodes provide the same signal transmission as reusable electrodes, with added convenience and hygiene. Each peel-and-stick electrode is pre-gelled and designed for one use only. Standard snap connection Ag/AgCl contact (11 mm dia) Electrolyte: hydrogel (4% chloride salt) Size: 41 mm vinyl backing Moderate adhesive Qty: 50 Use disposable snap…|
|General-purpose Electrodes||These pre-gelled disposable electrodes have a circular contact and are most suitable for short-term recordings, including surface EMG, ECG, EOG, etc. The small vinyl backing allows close electrode placement where necessary, and a slightly less firm adhesive allows "ouchless" removal. The electrodes incorporate liquid electrolyte gel and moderately-high chloride salt concentration for quick, accurate readings.…|
|Cloth Base Electrodes||These disposable cloth base electrodes adhere well and are particularly useful for applications on non-conforming surfaces, such as facial EMG measurements. Due to hydrogel electrolyte concentration, these are also suitable for electrical stimulation studies. Electrodes have a circular contact on a square backing. The adhesive solid hydrogel ensures good contact, and the silver-silver chloride (Ag/AgCl)…|
|Headphones||These wide response high-fidelity headphones are used for auditory stimulus (short tones or clicks) or to listen to physiological signals (like EMG) directly. The headphones are comfortable and lightweight and include a 2-meter cable so the Subject can be seated a comfortable distance from the acquisition unit. Simple Sensor connector interfaces with the “Analog Outport” port…|
|Voltage Stimulators||The Voltage Stimulator connects to either the MP36/MP35 or the MP30. BNC output provides compatibility with a variety of stimulator cables. The voltage Range and Level are manually controlled while the pulse timing is user-adjustable and controlled by the Biopac Student Lab software. The Voltage Range (.025-10 Volts or .12-100 Volts) is established by a switch with…|
|Goniometers & Torsiometers - MP3X/45||Dual-axis devices provide simultaneous measurements around two orthogonal rotational axes and single output devices measure axial rotation about a single plane. Use with MP3X or MP45 unit. SS20L and SS21L dual-axis goniometers measure limb angular movement (e.g., wrist flexion/extension and radial/ulnar deviations). SS22L and SS23L single-axis torsiometers measure forearm pronation/supination. SS24L single-axis goniometer measure joint movement…|
|Electrode Gels||Use this non-irritating, hypo-allergenic gel as conductant with electrodes. Click to review MSDS. MRI Use: Conditional Condition: Max MR field strength 7T. (See Specifications for components.) See GEL101 for an isotonic paste option.|
|Lead set, shielded, BSL||This fully-shielded cable assembly permits high resolution recording of biopotentials using our EL500 series disposable electrodes. The 2 meter adapter is terminated with standard pinch connectors to interface with EL500 series snap electrodes. The SS2LB interfaces with Biopac Student Lab data acquisition units (MP3X or MP45) and the MP36R research unit. Compatible releases BSL Lessons…|
|Finger Goniometer 35 mm - MP3X/45||SS24L is used to measure finger joint movement. The gauge mechanism in this single-axis goniometer allows for accurate measurement of polycentric joints. Telescopic endblocks compensate for changes in distance between the two mounting points as the limb moves. One MP3X/45 channel is required for output. Use medical adhesive tape (TAPE2) to attach to the body. See…|
|Hand Dynamometer - MP3X||Use this lightweight, ergonomically designed hand dynamometer to measure grip; clench force range 0-50 kgf. Use in isolation or combine with EMG recordings for in-depth studies of muscular activity. The isometric design improves experiment repeatability and accuracy, and simple calibration makes the device very easy to use. Transducer provides direct readings in kilograms or pounds. When…|
|Reflex Hammer Transducer - MP3X/45||The SS36L is a classic reflex hammer with a transducer attached to perform reflex measurements and record strike magnitude. Being able to measure the strength of impact allows students to take threshold measurements; that is, they can measure how much of an impact is needed to elicit a response. The SS36L uses a Taylor Hammer—the most…|
|Finger Twitch Transducer, BSL||Use this transducer to record finger twitch responses from human subjects receiving electrical stimulation (using the HSTM01 or STMHUM). The transducer conforms to the shape of the finger and attaches via Velcro® straps.|
