We all learn by doing. The concepts of science become real when your lab is configured to allow students to collect signals from their own bodies. A successful lab is one where students are fully engaged and learning the concepts—where they can achieve their goals without wasting time on equipment setup and confusing processes. That is why Cindy Marolf, EdD, Nebraska Wesleyan University, originally implemented BIOPAC, using it to increase student engagement, and taking student learning to the next level.
Join Professor Marolf, and Tim Cook of BIOPAC, to learn how to configure your lab using the Biopac Student Lab. You will learn how you can easily run core lessons, create custom lessons, and scale lessons to fit with your course curriculum. Professor Marolf will also take you into her lab, show you how she’s utilized the BIOPAC Student Lab to customize her students’ lab experience and discuss the positive impact it has had on both her and her students.
What You Will Learn
Benefits of adding a teaching solution
Increasing student engagement with technology
Reducing the amount of work for Professors
Customizing lessons and curriculum
Plus, see a live demo of a successful lab that increased student engagement.

About Tim Cook, M.S., BIOPAC Systems, Inc.
Tim received an M.S. in Health & Human Development with a focus on Biomechanics; his master’s work focused on maintaining muscle mass and bone density in Zero G environments (i.e., space flight) using a unilateral limb suspension model. Prior to joining BIOPAC in 2004, he worked as an Orthopaedic Research Assistant in studies focused on joint kinetics/kinematics of professional baseball pitchers, subscapularis muscle activity during selected rehabilitation exercises, and Comparison of Supination and Elbow Flexion Strength in Patients with Either Proximal Biceps Release or Biceps Tenodesis, then provided detailed consulting toward the implementation of motion measurement capture and analysis systems for biomechanics research.
The NIBP-A-MRI CareTaker4 system measures relative central arterial pressure to provide continuous, noninvasive “Beat-by-Beat” Blood Pressure from at rest humans (≥ 15 kg) in the MRI; measures include Diastolic, Systolic, Mean Arterial Pressure.; heart rate (HR) data is available. The system uses the scientific method of Pulse Decomposition Analysis (“PDA”). Key features Continuous, noninvasive monitoring […]
Alex Dimov, BIOPAC Sales Executive, was interviewed at the Neuromarketing World Forum by Inside Marketing to discuss how virtual reality can improve marketing research. Alex explains how VR can be used to present virtual iterations of a product to save time and money, and notes that measuring physiological responses adds lots of information for product and messaging […]
