Life science educators aspire to deliver engaging lessons that enable students to obtain a high degree of knowledge while building a confident commitment to learning. This workshop will target both new educators that are curious about what Biopac Student Lab (BSL) can offer and current users that are interested in maximizing the usage of existing BIOPAC Teaching Systems. Our latest Biopac Student Lab System features new functionality that helps educators deliver more inspired teaching including updated lessons with active learning content, factory calibrated transducers with improved accuracy out of the box and an add-on licensed feature for customizing lesson content. The extended BSL suite also includes a new add-on gas analysis system, the GASSYS3, which is capable of recording human metabolic data such as oxygen consumption (VO2) and carbon dioxide production (VCO2) from subjects at rest or at any level of exercise including VO2 max. The GASSYS3 is easy to set up and is accompanied by fully-scripted lessons which automatically calculate several useful metabolic parameters.
The ETVision (ETV) wearable unit resembles an eyeglasses frame that can be worn by itself or over the participant’s prescription eyeglasses. It contains miniature “eye cameras” that view each eye and a “scene camera” that views the scene in front of the participant, and a microphone. An optional visor can be mounted to the front […]
Correlating Driver Fatigue and Altitude Change In ongoing efforts to make our roads ever safer, frequent studies are published researching driver fatigue. In this study, researchers used wearable Eye Tracking technology and recorded eye movement, blink rate, and other physiological signals with the BIOPAC MP160 Data Acquisition Unit. The purpose of the study was to […]
BIOPAC’s just released Introductory ECG Guide addresses fundamental to advanced concerns to optimize electrocardiography data recording and analysis. Topics include: ECG Complex; Electrical and Mechanical Sequence of a Heartbeat; Systole and Diastole; Configurations for Lead I, Lead II, Lead III, 6-lead ECG, 12-lead ECG, precordial leads; Ventricular Late Potentials (VLPs); ECG Measurement Tools; Automated Analysis Routines […]
