A cost effective way for your students to quickly and easily record biosignals directly into Lt via USB.
"Easy to use - no-nonsense. Lt Sensors allow students to focus on learning, rather than hardware set-up."
Dr Mike Gill
Professional Practice Fellow, Physiology, University of Otago
Engage students in active learning
Our new range of eight plug-and-play sensors connect directly to Lt through the USB connection on your Windows-based laptop or desktop computer.
Students use the Lt Sensors to record and analyze their own physiological signals in real time – these products function as ECG/EKG, EEG, EMG, EOG, respiratory rate, and finger pulse sensors. This active engagement helps students to quickly grasp and understand core physiological concepts in Lt’s Human Physiology Labs.
Affordable and easy to use
Lt USB Sensors are perfect for educators that require new or additional hardware for human physiology courses. Together with Lt, these sensors are an affordable, easy to use data acquisition solution that give students an authentic lab experience, while also allowing flexibility between face-to-face and remote learning.

Lt Sensor Range and Kits
Lt Sensors can be purchased individually or in our Beginner and Intermediate Human Physiology Lt Sensor Kits.
Within Lt, use the Biopotential Sensor to process a wide variety of biological signals. This product functions as an ECG/EKG, EMG, EOG, and EEG sensor.
Demonstrate blood pressure measurements in a lecture, tutorial, or practical class with these sphygmomanometers, each of which is coupled to a pressure transducer.
Accurately converts heart sounds (mechanical vibrations) into electrical signals via an electret (condenser) microphone device.
The Finger Pulse Sensor uses a piezo-electric element to convert force applied to the active surface of the transducer into an electrical analog signal.
A pre-calibrated ready-to-use strain gauge based isometric dynamometer with a linear response in the 0-800N range.
The Respiratory Belt Sensor is designed to measure changes in chest diameter resulting from breathing.
Skin Temperature Sensors are specifically designed for continuous temperature monitoring using the skin as an indicator of body temperature.
Tendon hammers can be used to stimulate muscle spindles which elicit muscle contractions. They also provide triggering, timer or marker signals.

"Lt Sensors allowed me to record and visualize my own recordings with ease"
First Year Physiology Student, University of Otago
What is Lt?
Lt is our flexible online learning platform that bridges the gap between theory and practice. Lt can be used across a variety of learning environments depending on your needs: online or in-lab, face to face or distance.
Innovative: Use Lt in the lab for a fully customizable, hands-on experience using Lt Sensors for real-life data collection - or quickly switch to distance learning with engaging online labs that utilize built-in example data.
Lt Sensors + Lt Sensor Human Physiology Collection
The Lt Sensors are designed to be used with our Lt Sensor Human Physiology Collection, which contains 23 customizable lessons with a combination of tutorial(s), pre-lab prep, and a lab.
Each media-rich lesson is designed to maximize engagement and suit diverse learning styles, with a strong focus on student outcomes.
As they work through the lessons, students are prompted to record their own biological signals directly into Lt using the Lt Sensors, making scientific theory engaging, relevant, and real.
Ready-to-go, or customize
Each lesson has been expertly created by our team of instructional designers. You can use our ready-made lessons out of the box, or you can edit lessons to suit your own curriculum and teaching preferences. Lessons can be moved, grouped, and ordered as per your course needs.
If you have any questions about our Lt Sensors, or would like to talk to an ADInstruments representative please contact us here.
