Continuous biosignals acquisition are at the core of PLUX with synchronized multi-sensor acquisition support out-of-the box to make your setup easier.
But sometimes, capturing momentary values are the missing key element you need to complete the bigger picture of your research.
Today, we’ll introduce 6 new devices to our sensor portfolio to fill this gab and complete your setup. We’ve partnered with Beurer, a medical device manufacturer, to bring Temperature, Blood Pressure, Glucose, Body Weight and Pulse Oximetry data to your acquisitions.
In biomedical research, blood pressure data serves as a vital barometer of cardiovascular health, providing insights crucial for disease prevention and treatment strategies. Consider, for instance, a hypertension study where blood pressure monitoring highlights fluctuations that inform tailored interventions and medication management.
The momentary diastolic and systolic blood pressure and heart rate data measured at the upper arm and can be input into the OpenSignals acquisition software in addition to your biosignalsplux and BITalino sensor recordings. Alternatively, you can also use this device as a standalone device as it displays the acquired results directly on the built-in display.
Glucose level data, a cornerstone in biomedical research, plays a pivotal role in unraveling the intricacies of energy metabolism, enabling performance optimization, and facilitating the management of metabolic health. For example, in a diabetes research study, tracking glucose levels over time can reveal patterns and trends crucial for treatment decisions.
The Beurer® Glucometer Kit (GL 50) is an easy-to-use glucose measurement device that can reliable extract glucose leve data from small blood samples (0.6 microlitres). The recorded data can be input into the OpenSignals acquisition software in addition to your biosignalsplux and BITalino sensor recordings. Alternatively, you can also use this device as a standalone device as it displays the acquired results directly on the built-in display.
Pulse oximeter data is a vital tool in both biomedical research and sports sciences, offering essential insights into oxygen saturation levels and overall health and performance optimization. Since COVID19, these devices have long found their way out of clinical contexts and are even commonly found in non-clinical households.
The Beurer® Pulse Oximeter (FT 90) is an easy-to-use SpO2 and heart rate sensor hat optically extracts the SpO2 and heart rate values. The recorded data can be input into the OpenSignals acquisition software in addition to your biosignalsplux and BITalino sensor recordings. Alternatively, you can also use this device as a standalone device as it displays the acquired results directly on the built-in display.
Temperature data, whether contactless or contact-based, is an indispensable asset in biomedical research, unveiling critical physiological insights and environmental impacts. For instance, it can help researchers track fever patterns in infectious disease studies, providing valuable information for diagnosis and treatment strategies.
With the Beurer® Contact Thermometer (OT 30) and Non-Contact Thermometer (FT 95) we added two options for easy momentary temperature measurements to add to your research. Both options can be used as standalone device using the device’s integrated displays or with our OpenSignals acquisition software to complement your biosignalsplux and BITalino sensor recordings.
Bodyweight data acts as a fundamental indicator of health and wellness, offering insights pivotal for disease prevention and treatment strategies. For instance, in a clinical obesity study, tracking changes in bodyweight can provide essential data for assessing the effectiveness of weight management interventions and their impact on overall health.
While our biosignalsplux Force Platform can certainly provide you body weight data, its functionalities and weight often extend the needs of researchers outside sports sciences to a significant. With the Beurer® Bodyweight Scale (BF 600), you can quickly without any complex setups record your subjects' bodyweight and add it to your BITalino or biosignalsplux sensor data.
