The Biopac Student Lab System’s Biomedical Engineering Core Discipline package provides extensive recording and analysis options for signal processing curriculum, including bioelectric and biomechanical studies. The data acquisition unit includes four universal, software-programmable amplifiers that can record biopotential and transducer signals. This BME Core Discipline package provides educators with a complete, flexible teaching system in the form of an integrated system of hardware, software, and curriculum which increases student engagement and provides extensive instructor support–before, during, and after the lab.
“During each [BIOPAC] laboratory exercise, students follow detailed procedures that are designed to demonstrate principles of biophysics and biological measurement. Student feedback on the laboratories has been phenomenal, with the hands-on experiences motivating the students in a way that no lecture-only course can.”  — IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology, July/August 2003 (Vol. 22, No. 4, pg. 106)
The Biopac Student Lab Biomedical Engineering Core Discipline hardware/software combination can be tailored for a wide range of measurements with analysis tools for digital filtering, integration, differentiation, FFT, convolution, correlation, and a host of signal processing options. The Breadboard allows students to build and test real circuits and then use the software to compare real results to simulation. Collect, display and investigate data with the BSL System, or use it to direct data to industry-standard applications like MatLab or LabVIEW.

Add the BSLBME-ROBOT-HW hardware kit to use the H40 EMG-Controlled Robotic/Prosthetic Gripper lesson set for basic introduction of how to create an artificial body part that is controlled by the human nervous system.

Suitable for inquiry-based, active learning in 2-yr. and 4-yr. programs, medical schools, and nursing programs. Powerful setup and analysis tools also make the BSL ideal for graduate studies and personal research.

BioNomadix 2CH Wireless Goniometry Amplifier

The BioNomadix two channel wireless goniometry amplifier is a dual output device that provide simultaneous measurements around two orthogonal rotational axes (e.g., wrist flexion/extension and radial/ulnar deviations). These units interface with the MP160 (or older MP150) data acquisition and analysis platform and AcqKnowledge software, allowing advanced analysis for multiple applications and supporting acquisition of a broad range of signals and measurements. BN-GONIO can support any […]
