The SS51L pneumotach can perform a variety of pulmonary measurements relating to airflow, lung volume, and expired gas analysis. Each pneumotach transducer consists of a heated airflow pneumotach head coupled to a precision, highly sensitive, differential pressure transducer (RX137G1 to SS40L).
The SS51L pneumotach is equipped with an internal heating element and includes the AC137A 6-volt power supply.
The pneumotachs will connect directly to a breathing circuit or plethysmogram chamber. For airflow and lung volume measurements, connect a short airflow cannula to the pneumotach flow head.
For switchable or replacement head options, see the RX137 Series.
Many studies use hand dynamometry to objectively quantify exerted effort during experiments most commonly related to the study of motivation.
We’ll focus on this topic and go over everything you need to know to record dynamometry data in the MRI or in the lab. Topics include
– Calibrating for maximum voluntary contraction (MVC)
– Real-time access to the dynamometer signal by third-party applications
– How researchers have used this equipment
– Creating a visual task that gives feedback on exerted effort as well as rewards to the participant

Discovering and understanding what motivates humans to produce better results has intrigued many researchers. Many researchers have explored the psychophysiological processes that drive our behavior. Here are some recent studies that have used BIOPAC systems to research motivation… Motivation and Pleasure Deficits Undermine the Benefits of Social Affiliation in Psychosis. Blanchard, J. J., Smith, J. […]
