Electrocardiography (ECG/EKG)

What is Electrocardiography (ECG/EKG)?

Electrocardiography (ECG or EKG) studies the heart's electrical activity produced during myocardial contraction and relaxation, usually recorded by electrodes on the skin. ECG signals are recorded to examine heart rate, heart rate variability, analysis of the waveform morphology, arrhythmia and other similar functions.

We offer a range of Bio Amps for recording ECG signals that are tested and certified for use in human subjects. 

Our Bio Amps interface seamlessly with PowerLab and LabChart forming a streamlined ECG/EKG acquisition and analysis system.
