Pressure Pad / Respiration Trans.
Part #: TSD110

The TSD110 consists of a differential pressure transducer (TSD160B), sensor (RX110), and tubing (AFT30). The TSD110 interfaces to a DA100C amplifier for use with an MP1x0 research system.

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 swallowing (deglutition)
  6. Measure spacing and pressure between teeth coming together.
  7. Measure startle blink response.

Compatibility


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.

record the pulsewaveform

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).

Swallowing (Deglutition

  • The TSD110 is a minimally invasive and easy to deploy solution, making it a good choice for collecting data from infants and toddlers (use TSD110-MRI for MRI settings). Place over throat muscles to see changes in the pressure pad data when deglutition, talking, drinking, etc. occur. Click the Videos tab to watch a demo.
