Instructors are exploring all options for the fall and we hear a lot of frustration every day. There are many ways to approach teaching practical labs in this era—including going back to using clay models and pipe cleaners—but why not use a technology that will help you manage the unknown and unpredictable in a modern way? BIOPAC will demonstrate how students can continue learning through hands-on practical physiology labs regardless of social distancing, limited class sizes, or campus closures.
BIOPAC offers a human physiology lab kit, BSL Home, that is very easy for instructors to adopt and, more importantly, for students to use. Lessons on EMG, ECG, EEG, EOG, respiration, biofeedback, and aerobic exercise are pre-configured and included with a handheld device that includes integrated hardware and software. Students simply plug in the device and follow the prompts. Instructors benefit from a curriculum run by thousands of labs. Whether students are spaced out 6′ apart in the lab, social distanced in a separate classroom, at home, or in dorms—instructors can still achieve learning objectives using modern technology.
BIOPAC will host an online presentation to demonstrate BSL Home on July 23rd at 11:00 am Pacific. Learn how you can provide labs without starting over and without redesigning your curriculum.

Strategies for holding practical labs with students in different locations
Jasmine is the new Biopac Student Lab Product Manager who previously served as the Midwest Regional Sales Representative for the last four years. Prior to joining BIOPAC Systems, Jasmine taught undergraduate laboratory courses and received training in active learning strategies for STEM. Today, she works on educational solutions that engage and excite students while streamlining the teaching process.
With Biopac Student Lab, students learn by doing and use near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) sensors to record and analyze data displaying changes in deoxygenated (Hb) and oxygenated (HbO2) hemoglobin during cognitive and neuromuscular.Learn what fNIRS can add to your physiology lab: – Principles of optical brain imaging – Lessons on prefrontal cortex imaging and muscle oxygenation – Demonstration examining Hb and HbO2 during BP occlusion – Combining fNIRS curriculum with EMG, EDA, EEG, ECG, SpO2, and Respiration to examine the relationship between brain oxygenation and other physiological signals – Use cases for both teaching and research Watch On-Demand
BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allows research teams to study dyadic interactions. Here are a few notable studies using BIOPAC equipment for dyadic research focusing on ECG and EDA data.
