JULY 31, 2017 | Excessive cell phone use may cause anxiety, experts warn


BIOPAC user Nancy A. Cheever, Ph.D. from California State University, Dominguez Hills was featured on Good Morning America. Her study investigated whether spending too much time on your phone may be causing people to feel stress and anxiety. Dr. Cheever hooked up TJ Holmes and two teenage participants to an MP System with GSR and heart rate amplifiers to measure ECG and Electrodermal Activity. The subjects were then interviewed about the physiological aspects of Smartphone addiction.

This is not the only study that Nancy Cheever’s lab has gotten attention for. She was previously featured on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper for her study on how smart phone apps keep us hooked to our phones.

Cardiac Output amplifier

NICO Smart Amplifier

The NICO Smart Amplifier is specifically designed to measure thoracic impedance for performing noninvasive cardiac output measurements. The amplifier terminates in two connectors for impedance (Z) and its derivative (dZ), and has a 3 m cable that connects directly to an AMI100D Amplifier Input Module. Use with EL500 series disposable electrodes and LEAD131 for a four-spot […]

NIRS and CNAP—Pairing great tools for great data Cerebral hemoglobin concentration (blood mass in the brain) is frequently measured in the prefrontal cortex, and systemic arterial blood pressure is known to be a variable factor based on the hemoglobin concentration. A leg pressure cuff was used to constrict and release blood flow to create a […]
