Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is determined by analyzing the time series of beat-to-beat intervals from an electrocardiogram (ECG).
HRV is a popular tool within psychophysiology as it can be an easy indicator to assess the relative contributions of the parasympathetic and sympathetic nerves to the control of basic cardiac rhythm. ECG, blood pressure, or arterial pulse recordings can be used to investigate this interplay between sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
PowerLab and LabChart form a streamlined system to record and analyze heart rate variability (HRV). Run protocols for different stimuli and synchronize with either wireless or wired psychological response data.
Products and Solutions
In conjunction with our solutions shown below, any device 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.
