Wired Physiological Monitoring

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.

In conjunction with our complete system shown below, any device (i.e. ergometer, exercise bike, treadmill) with an analog output (+/- 10V) can be connected to a PowerLab data acquisition system for synchronization of event in LabChart. So you have even more flexibility and can integrate all your data streams in one place.

All of our hardware recommended for human use is backed by the appropriate safety certification standards. More information on safety standards.

Typical Studies

Respiration

Exercise tests

Muscle activation and fatigue

Heart rate and ECG analysis

Autonomic function

Signals Supported

Angles
+

Record joint angle movement and muscle activities
.

ECG
+

Safely record up to 12 ECG signals on your human participants during research.

EMG
+

Surface EMG recording can provide information about aggregate motor unit activity in superficial muscle.

Fluid Flow
+

Record non-invasive blood flow in human subjects.

NIBP
+

Record continuous blood pressure while maintaining almost full freedom of movement.

Respiratory Flow
+

Record changes in inhalation, expiration and breathing strength to derive breathing rate in subjects.

SpO2
+

Measure blood oxygen saturation non-invasively from the ear or finger and examine the relationships between this and other biopotentials.

Temperature
+

Record dermal skin temperature over time.

Flexible Data Acquisition

ADInstruments systems provide an integrated solution to advance life science research. With the combination of LabChart analysis software and a PowerLab data acquisition unit you have the flexibility to collect and synchronize a wide range of signals for analysis. We also offer a range of LabChart compatible solutions able to stream directly in LabChart.
