Wired Physiological Monitoring

Using wired (tethered) physiological monitoring you can collect precise movement data, record joint movement, and measure muscle activity with absolute confidence.

ADInstruments offer a wide range of wired solutions for studying the mechanics, properties, and performance of muscles and joints. Gain in-depth physiological insights into how the human body reacts to stress and stimulation by recording and analyzing signals including EMG, ECG, NIBP, temperature, SpO2, respiratory flow, fluid flow, angles, and ergometer output.

Get your subjects moving with PowerLab and our range of goniometers and specialized transducers which enable simultaneous stimulation and recording of movement from muscles and joints.
