IX-BIO4-LA Large Animal ECG/EMG System

The IX-BIO4-LA system is optimized for Humans and other Large Animals.

The IX-BIO4-LA system includes:

The IX-BIO4 is a Four Channel Biopotential Amplifier that allows multiple channels of EMG, ECG, EOG to be recorded simultaneously from a single subject. The recorder is furnished with LabScribe Recording and Analysis Software and connects directly to a USB port on either a Macintosh or Windows PC.

IX-BIO8-LA is a 8 channel system.


ECG signals can be measured with the IX-BIOx.  Measuring 2 channels of ECG, Lead I and Lead II allows LabScribe software to calculate Lead III, aVR, aVF and aVL .  EMG signals can be measured at the same time as the ECG signals.

Kinesiology is the study of human and nonhuman animal-body movements, performance, and function by applying the sciences of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology, and neuroscience. When studying kinesiology,  surface electromyography  (sEMG or Surface EMG) is the measurement of choice.  The IX-BIOx enables 4 channels of EMG recordings, or a combination of EMG and ECG recordings.
