Transducer for wireless, wearable physiology
Use this Respiration Transducer to record respiratory effort with a wireless BioNomadix or wired Smart Amplifier to measure changes in thoracic or abdominal circumference that occur as a subject breathes. The design presents minimal resistance to movement and is extremely unobtrusive. Due to its novel construction, the RSP transducer can measure arbitrarily slow to very fast respiration patterns with no loss in signal amplitude, while maintaining excellent linearity and minimal hysteresis. The conductance of the gauge is linear with applied stretch to belt. As belt length increases, voltage output (reflected at amplifier output) increases, as gauge conductance increases and gauge resistance decreases.
The transducer is attached by a fully adjustable nylon strap that allows the transducer to fit almost any circumference. Additional straps available (RX-STRAP-RSP) to allow for disinfection between subjects without any down time—use extra straps with transducer while washing previously worn straps.
