Automated EDA Scoring – new video tutorial

AcqKnowledge includes a fully-automated electrodermal response scoring tool that locates skin conductance responses, visually identifies them in the record, and measures them. It also automates event related potentials (ERP) analysis by locating the onset of the stimuli and identifying a valid SCR. Preferences for the software allow the user to select: Phasic derivation method Highpass […]

New VMG report: isometric absolute muscle effort

Vibromyography (VMG) has distinct benefits over EMG in that the recordings much more accurately reflect absolute muscle effort up to 100% maximum voluntary contraction. Correspondingly, VMG can be used to both evaluate muscle changes over time in a given individual or to compare between two populations the muscle effort required to complete a specific task. […]

Vibromyography to Assess Quad Rehab After ACL Tear

A new application note for the Vibromyography transducer (TSD250) addresses how VMG can be used to assess quadriceps rehabilitation progress in a young adult male following ACL reconstruction. Vibromyography (VMG) has distinct benefits over dynamometry in that VMG recordings reproducibly reflect absolute muscle effort up to 100% of maximum voluntary contraction. Correspondingly, VMG can be […]
