VMG TSD250A MEMS Accelerometer
Part #: VMG102WSW, VMG102WS, VMG104WS, VMG104WSW
The system uses sensitive microelectromechanical (MEMS) accelerometers and advanced signal analysis algorithms to monitor muscle vibration. The Vibromyography technique allows researchers to study muscle performance and strength balance.
The VMG accelerometers are placed over the muscle belly and held in place* to record the small vibrations that occur when the muscle is activated. AcqKnowledge software uses wavelet packet analysis to extract the vibrational components that correlate with the effort generated by the muscle being studied. AcqKnowledge includes automated VMG analysis filters to simplify the analysis process.

Compatibility


VMG provides extremely reproducible results. The single sensor solution and the lack of skin preparation improve the reliability and reproducibility of muscle effort recordings between muscles and across subjects. One major benefit of being able to compare readings between muscles and between subjects is the ability to perform muscle balance assessments.
Benefits
  • Ability to perform muscle balance assessments
  • Improved reproducibility between muscles and individuals
  • Convenient setup
  • Reduced setup time
  • Improved subject comfort
  • No electrodes
  • No skin preparation

* Transducer can be secured with a variety of attachment methods (not included), such as double-sided adhesive tape, Ace® bandages and Nylatex® wraps (2.5” or 4” width suggested). Do not use excessive pressure in securing the transducers—snug enough not to move is adequate.

Haptic (Tactile) Stimulation Transducer

The TSD190 is a haptic (tactile) stimulator that is ergonomically designed to strap onto a variety of body locations. It incorporates an internal electromagnetically actuated plunger which can be used to mechanically stimulate a 1.5 mm diameter area of skin surface; both plunger force and travel can be infinitely adjusted between zero and a specified […]
