The H40 lesson set provides a basic introduction of how to create an artificial body part that is controlled by the human nervous system. Students are guided through breadboard circuit design to ultimately use their own EMG signals to control a simplified two-axis, robotic, prosthetic gripper.
The lesson set contains 10 individual labs, designed with the next generation of students in mind. A “pre-lab” provides background information on breadboard basics to ensure an easy start for students from a variety of disciplines—life science, engineering, physics, etc.
Labs are structured with active learning principles that guide students through designing the robotic/prosthetic gripper from the ground up. Each lab has specific learning objectives and an accompanying Data Report with analysis questions and activities that check understanding; tolerances for reported measurements are included for easy verification. Students and instructors may also refer back to the Appendix, which includes additional information on the equations used, user software interface, graph template settings, and a glossary that defines the scientific terminology used throughout the lesson set.
This EMG-Controlled Robotic/Prosthetic Gripper Lesson Set is a comprehensive introduction to robotics and signal processing that bridges biology and engineering. Students read and translate the schematic onto the breadboard and become familiar with circuit design and practical issues with construction and testing.

The BSLBME-ROBOT-HW kit includes all required hardware for building the EMG Robotic/Prosthetic Gripper using the BSL PRO H40 Lesson Set with an existing MP36/35 running BSL 4.1 or higher.
BSLBME-ROBOT-TA includes all of the components in BSLBME-ROBOT-HW except SS39LB Signal & Power Cable and SS60LB Input Cable. It can be used to add additional workstations...students build their own breadboard and then use shared SS39LB and SS60LB cables to power and test their build.
Digital Voltmeter (DVM) Power busses are measured using a lab-standard digital voltmeter (DVM) at the start of each lab. If your lab does not have DVMs available, you may skip this step.

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 EL526 strip electrodes and CBL246 adapter or with EL500 […]View All
Exercise physiology is the study of the body’s response to physical activity. Research in exercise physiology allows for insights in health and for a better understanding of the functions of the body at work. Here are some recent studies in exercise physiology that utilized BIOPAC tools for their research… Effect of exercise on electrocardiographic parameters […]
