REACH-DL Distance Learning System

The REACH-DL is a home-based lab kit designed for distance learning and online students. The kit contains the sensors, recording software, and write-ups to perform over 15 core experiments introducing your students to the fundamentals of cardiovascular, neuromuscular and respiratory physiology.

Each exercise is laid out in a step-by-step, simple-to-use fashion, allowing your students to perform hands-on experiments at home, easily analyze their findings, and generate a report.

REACH-DL includes:

  • REACH Physiological Recorder
  • LabScribeDL Recording and Analysis Software
  • Set of 5 snap leads for ECG/EMG and Respiration (C-ISO-SL5)
  • 50 electrodes ECG/EMG/Respiration Electrodes (A-ELEC-50)
  • Kit Box (A-KB-REACH)

The REACH-DL system is keyed to the HAPS Learning Goals and Outcomes.
Labs that can be performed with this system:

Quick Start
Quick Start: Learn how to use LabScribeDL and the iWorx systems using pulse.
Heart
ECG – Rest & Recovery: Record an Electrocardiogram (ECG) and study the effects of exercise on an ECG and pulse.
ECG – Exercise & O2 Saturation: Record an Electrocardiogram (ECG) and O2 Saturation and examine the relationship between the ECG and the percentage of O2 in the blood.
ECG – Temperature & Arm Position: Record an Electrocardiogram (ECG) and examine the relationship of the ECG to the peripheral circulation.
Diving Reflex: Study the mammalian diving reflex and the effect on pulse.
Muscle
Grip Force: Measure EMG – Grip Force. Study the effect of fatigue.
Muscles in Opposition: Measure EMGs from antagonistic muscle groups.
Electrooculogram (EOG): Measure Electrooculogram (EOG)and study muscle activity while doing a variety of different tasks including pursuit and saccades.
Electrogastrogram (EGG): Compare Electrogastrogram (EGG) on an empty and full stomach.
Targeted Exercise: Measure EMG in “active” muscle groups to make sure that the exercise routine is being done properly.
Reflexes
Eyes vs. Ears: The study of whether sight or sound stimuli cause a faster reaction time.
Color Test: Measure reaction times to visual stimuli of different colors.
Breathing
Rest & Recovery: Measure breathing depth and rate at rest and during recovery from exercise.
Exercise & O2 Saturation: Measure breathing depth and rate, and O2 saturation at rest and during recovery from exercise.
Breathing & Body Position: Examine the effects of gravity on breathing by measuring the differences in breathing depth and rate while resting and while sitting, standing, or lying down.
Activities & O2 Saturation: Measure oxygen saturation levels in the blood during normal breathing, apnea, shallow breathing, and other parameters.
