Pressure Pad / Respiration Trans.
Part #: TSD110

The TSD110 consists of a differential pressure transducer (TSD160B), sensor (RX110), and tubing (AFT30). The TSD110 interfaces to an MP150/MP100 via a DA100C amplifier.

The Pressure Pad/Respiration Transducer (TSD110) requires no electrical connections and works on a number of body locations (affix with TAPE1). The multipurpose assembly can be used to:

  1. Measure pulse when placed on a major pulse point.
  2. Noninvasively measure respiration—from a small mouse to a human.
  3. Measure small pressing forces (like pinching fingers together) for Parkinson’s evaluations.
  4. Measure human facial expressions (smiling, frowning, etc.)
  5. Measure spacing and pressure between teeth coming together.
  6. Measure startle blink response.

Respiration

  • Animals: For high-quality respiration signals, place an anesthetized animal on the sensor pad and run the tubing to the pressure transducer on the DA100C amp.
  • Humans: Place the TSD110 under a strap that is wrapped around the subject’s chest, or tape the transducer directly to the chest to record respiration.

Finger Tap Response

  • Mount the pressure pad/respiration transducer so that the subject can tap it to respond (monotonically variable or ON/OFF) to a stimulus. Use multiple transducers for complex applications.

Pulse and pulse rate

  • To record the pulse waveform, position the transducer around the tip of the finger or over one of the major pulse points (such as the carotid or radial arteries).record the pulsewaveform

fNIR Imaging Systems

fNIR Imaging Systems are stand-alone functional brain imaging solutions for continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS). They provide an in-lab cognitive function assessment and eliminate a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI. fNIR optical imaging technology measures neural activity and hemodynamic response in the prefrontal cortex. Subjects wear an fNIR sensor (IR light sources […]
