Script 060 – Dynamometry Feedback (MVC line trace)




In this BIOPAC Basic Scripting example, the code allows the following experiment to be performed:

  1. Maximum Voluntary Contraction (MVC) of a participant is recorded.
  2. The participant exerts forces so that the force signal approximates a target path as closely as possible.
    • The target path is specified ahead of time by the researcher via a text file and is displayed in full.
  3. A text file is produced with the force data and the target path data so it can be loaded and analyzed in AcqKnowledge.

Hand Clench Dynamometer for MRI

Use to measure clench force in the MRI; clench force range 0-50 kgf. The lightweight, ergonomically designed transducer provides direct readings in kilograms or pounds. Use in isolation or combine with EMG recordings for in-depth studies of muscular activity. The isometric design improves experiment repeatability and accuracy. The TSD121B-MRI has an 8 meter cable terminated for connection […]
