MP160 Research System

MP160 data acquisition and analysis systems provide a flexible tool for life science research. MP160 workstations include all hardware, software, cables, and guides you need to get started. The modular, powerful data acquisition system interface can be used with BIOPAC’s amplifiers and accessories AND with equipment you already have. Place one or more MP160 Systems in a local area network (LAN); use any computer in the LAN to record from any MP160 system in the network. Add amplifier modules, transducers, and electrodes for your specific needs.

MP160 Data Acquisition Hardware

  • Ethernet-ready data acquisition and analysis
    • ships with compact USB 2.0 to Ethernet Adapter, 10/100 Mbps, no external power adapter required
  • Record multiple channels with differing sample rates
  • Record at speeds up to 400 kHz (aggregate)

AcqKnowledge Acquisition & Analysis SoftwareACQ Graph

AcqKnowledge is an interactive, intuitive program that lets you instantly view, measure, transform, and analyze data. Perform complex data acquisition, stimulation, triggering, and automated analysis routines using simple pull-down menus and dialogs—no need to learn a programming language or new protocol. Online analysis settings, filters, and transformations provide real-time feedback, or you can choose from a wide variety of off-line analysis tools. Multiple display options are available during and after acquisition—just click on an icon to flip between Chart, Scope, X/Y, Overlapped segments, Histogram, or FFT. The software also includes quality presentation capabilities.

These systems include the AcqKnowledge Network Data Transfer (NDT) License to support the biofeedback link.

  • AcqKnowledge software is licensed for a single user for use on one MP System. For multiple concurrent users, see our Site License Program.

BioNomadix Wireless Recording

Wearable, wireless recording devices allow subjects freedom of movement and deliver the signal quality your scientific research demands. BioNomadix® module pairs consist of a wireless Transmitter and matched Receiver. Each pair is specifically designed to measure and optimized for the specified signal types(s).  Dual-channel transmitter-receiver sets record ECG, EEG, EMG, EOG, EGG, EDA, Pulse, Temperature, Respiration, Cardiac Output, Heel/Toe Strike, Clench Force, Accelerometry, or Goniometry.  Module sets incorporate internal, non-distorting, highpass and lowpass filters to provide for high quality amplification of the complete waveform.

BIOFEEDBACK LINK

With the Biofeedback linking protocol—a proprietary utility and AcqKnowledge software with a Network Data Transfer (NDT) license—events from the virtual or augmented world (AR) and physiological data are synchronized. NDT has the capability to send all of its channels over the network to other computers as well as the same computer. The data from AcqKnowledge—such as physiological recordings, digital markers, and calculation channels—can be used in real time by the VR System or other applications. The linking protocol allows you to use a feedback loop for greater control and automation of the VR world—change the VR world in real time, based on the subject’s responses.

COMPLETE VR SYSTEMS

VizMove VR Systems are complete VR hardware and software solutions with everything you need to create and experience virtual reality content. Choose the System that suits your lab space, participant population, mobility requirements, and budget.

All VizMove VR Systems include

  • High-performance rendering computer.
  • Vizard development platform: Vizard is the most powerful, innovative virtual reality development platform.

VizMove Seated VR

VizMove Seated VR is ideal for users in design visualization and consumer research analysis in a typical lab setting where space may be limited—does not require any more space than a typical monitor-based stimulus presentation system but is much more immersive. Participants are typically seated and can look freely in all directions. This compact virtual reality system uses a VR headset and gamepad controller.

  • Visualize complex environments
  • Navigate large areas
  • Set up system quickly and easily in a small area

Core Features

VizMove Standing VR

VizMove Standing VR is ideal for research in which precise 3D manipulation, measurement and motion tracking need to be combined with fully immersive virtual reality applications, and this setup fits in a small lab space. Participants can move forward and sideways with improved realism—approach/avoid avatars or objects just as naturally as in the real world. Using the infrared cameras for tracking dramatically improves the quality of the tracking; participants will feel more comfortable and will be able to move around more freely while being tracked precisely, plus additional objects, such as an object the participant is holding, can also be tracked.

This VR System includes a HMD, navigation wand, and Precision Position Tracking (PPT) with  two sensors and tripods that allow for six degrees of freedom (6DoF) and movement at a 1:1 scale in the virtual world.
