The Wireless EKG Sensor measures electrical signals produced by contractions of the heart or muscles, and reports them in real-time on virtually any student device. The perfect sensor for fast-paced physiology courses, the EKG Sensor provides students with real-time feedback as they explore the effects of various stimuli on cardiac or muscular activity.
Heart Rate data is reported in beats per minute (BPM), while the voltage (mV) detected from cardiac contractions is intuitively displayed in an EKG trace. The sensor can also be used to study nerve impulses that affect muscles other than the heart, enabling students to study a wider range of physiological phenomena, including reflexes, muscle fatigue and more.
