GASSYS3 System

Obtaining accurate and reproducible metabolic data, such as oxygen consumption (VO2), carbon dioxide production (VCO2) and respiratory exchange ratio (RER), from research participants at rest and during exercise provides detailed insights regarding human response and physiology. These measurements are extremely important to many research disciplines including exercise physiology, sports science, biomedical engineering, psychophysiology, and various consumer neuroscience applications.

However, traditional methods of recording metabolic data in humans offer a myriad of challenges: most prominently, extensive and complex calibration processes, cumbersome operation and prohibitive costs. In contrast, BIOPAC’s new Metabolic System is an accurate, compact, and affordable turn-key solution for both research and physiology education applications. In developing this system, BIOPAC has uncovered a new way to easily obtain great metabolic data.

During this webinar, Frazer Findlay and William McMullen will

Key topics covered during this webinar will include…

  • Theory of operation
  • Challenges with traditional gas analysis/metabolic data measurement solutions
  • Setup & measurement using the new BIOPAC GASSYS3
  • Participant preparation strategies for ensuring quality recordings
  • Leveraging specific analysis features found in AcqKnowledge Software for metabolic research

Dyadic Interactions Involving Parents, Children, Couples, and More | Recording from Multiple Participants Part I

Synchronizing Data from Multiple Participants
Performing a dyadic experiment takes more planning than single-participant studies. Data must be tightly synchronized, equipment must remain inobtrusive, and the experimental paradigm drives the optimal setup. Join us to learn how to record high-quality synchronized data for a wide range of applications.

What You Will Learn:
– How to synchronize data from two participants
– Recording options: ECG, EDA, EEG, fNIRS, Video
– Collaborative virtual environments
– Data analysis techniques
– Practical tips—and advice on working with children
– New ideas about your research

Live Webinar: May 20th at 8AM PT/11AM ET
