Vibromyography for Length-Tension Curves

To date it has been difficult to characterize the length-tension curve for a specific muscle. However, recent developments in the application of vibromyographic (VMG) technology to assess muscle effort permit an accurate determination of length-tension curve, thereby permitting accurate diagnosis and rehabilitation of muscle. Click for the full applicaton note Using Vibromyography to obtain length-tension curves […]

MRI Data – ECG, EEG, EMG, EDA, PPG

A new application note for MRI Smart Amplifiers addresses the recording of real-time physiological data, from a human subject, during fMRI. These MRI Smart Amplifiers are designed differently than BIOPAC’s standard amplifier modules. MRI-specific amplifier modules feature internal circuitry which is designed to minimize MRI artifact (to the maximum extent possible) while still best preserving […]

NEW MRI Smart Amplifers improve results

BIOPAC's line of MRI-compatible data acquisition equipment now includes MRI Smart Amplifiers for ECG, EDA, EEG, EMG, and PPG signals. MRI Smart Amplifiers incorporate advanced signal processing circuitry which removes spurious MRI artifact from the source physiological data. Signal processors are able to distinguish between physiological signal and MRI artifact as manifested by gradient switching during […]

ESPN Sport Science video: BJ Penn with fNIR

Sport Science brings in former UFC Lightweight champion B.J. Penn to demonstrate the impact of the rear-naked choke on host John Brenkus and uses the fNIR System from BIOPAC to measure oxygen supply to the frontal cortex during the exercise; EEG and heart rate were also recorded. John’s heart rate drops from 124 to 80, respiration […]

UCSB MAT Presentation at BIOPAC June 7

A team of UCSB Media Arts and Technology (MAT) graduate students will present their end of year project at BIOPAC on Monday, June 7, 2010 at 12:15 PM. The project, which examines principles associated with traditional Chinese medicine, involved the extensive use of BIOPAC equipment and software. The students employed the Network Data Transfer facility offered with the […]
