Goleta, CA (Jan. 26, 2010) – BIOPAC Systems, Inc. has released a new haptic (tactile) stimulator that incorporates an electromagnetically actuated plunger which can be used to mechanically stimulate a 1.5 mm diameter area of skin surface. The TSD190 is ergonomically designed to strap onto a variety of body locations and both plunger force and travel can be infinitely adjusted between zero and a specified maximum value. Applications include somatosensory and other types of tactile sensory tests, such as an averaging-type sensory nerve test to determine the speed of propagation and activation threshold of somatosensory nerves.
The TSD190 connects directly to the BIOPAC STM100C stimulation module. Plunger activation force, width of stimulus pulse, and pulse repetition rate are established via the AcqKnowledge Set up Stimulator window. The TSD190 will respond to any kind of applied waveform, such as square, triangle, sinusoidal or arbitrary.
BIOPAC is introducing Biopac Student Lab Home (BSL-HOME)—a new product specifically geared towards teaching physiology labs remotely so students can still get hands-on, practical lab experience if social distancing and stay-at-home orders keep them out of the lab..
BSL-HOME will allow your students to conduct physiology labs in the safety of their own home, dorm room, or any remote location.

The premier life science education system, Biopac Student Lab, has been expanded with […]
Musical Intervention as Stress Regulation There is no question that music can be beneficial in regulating mood and psychological states, but what type of musical intervention assists the greatest in stress reduction? Researchers turn to physiological signals to compare the stress reduction effects of two types of musical interventions: music listening and musical improvisation. Stressor […]
