BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allows engineers to study the body. Here are a few notable studies using BIOPAC equipment for Biomedical Engineering research.

Rehabilitating the Rehab Industry

Could physical therapy be done from the comforts of your own home? If possible, this would open the door for more people with all sorts of ailments to receive treatment worldwide. Using an MP36 Data Acquisition System, the researchers aimed to create a device that would allow physiotherapists to collect real time physiology data from patients during a rehabilitation exercise in order to adjust treatment as needed.

Supporting Stand Up Surgeons

Could wearing a supportive device reduce physical stress on surgeons? Could benefits not only be given to the surgeon but passed onto the patient as well? By incorporating the two channel, wireless EMG BioNomadix amplifier, this study was able to measure EMG signals for muscle fatigue while surgeons were both wearing and not wearing the supportive device during surgery.

Lefor) 

Getting a Grip on the Effects of Mental Effort

In theory, if you are expecting something to happen you should be able to react quicker and achieve better results than if you were not. Can this be scientifically proven though? EMG signals were recorded on a BIOPAC Data Acquisition Unit to measure if participants who could anticipate the task performed better.

fNIRS Data Analysis

In this fNIRS training, you will see a typical analysis workflow for fNIRS data in experiments featuring both event-based and continuous stimulation. Learn about a powerful yet easy-to-use software package with both a graphical user interface and scripting capability (for automation).

What You Will Learn:
• Preparing data for analysis
• Signal conditioning, noise removal, and managing artifacts
• Best practices for visualizing recorded data
• Block analysis using event markers and/or time
• Further temporal and spatial processing of data, including cell-by-cell processing
• Automation of analysis procedures
• Performing common statistical comparisons (t-test, ANOVA)
• Spatial visualization
