Enhance Physiology Teaching with the BioRadio Lab Course

The BioRadio Lab Course teaching system uses the BioRadio wireless data acquisition amplifier to teach students about physiological monitoring, analysis, and applications. A complete, pre-written curriculum saves you time in course material development and canned experiments teach students concepts such as data acquisition, physiological signal monitoring and analysis, and clinical applications. A variety of labs make the BioRadio Lab Course a great solution for undergraduate through graduate level courses.

With the BioRadio Lab Course, students will learn the following about physiology signal monitoring

  • Introduction to physiological monitoring equipment and data acquisition software
  • Proper electrode placement and methods for recording clean signals
  • Basic physiological monitoring techniques for ECG, EMG, EEG, and EOG
  • Recording, viewing, and analyzing physiological data to extract meaningful information
  • Learning to use sensors for recording blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation, respiration, spirometry, and force
  • Familiarity with abnormal ECG and EEG signals using sample signal databases
  • How to monitor gait using EMG from the legs, and comparison to abnormal gait patterns
  • The use of EEG to detect states of alertness
  • The clinical application of using EMG to control a virtual robotic arm
  • How to derive heart rate from a raw ECG signal
