Waveform display in multiple windows and formats with full zoom, scroll, and area marking facilities, option to split, tile and cascade windows.
Waveforms within the same window may be viewed overlaid or as separate traces. Easily toggle between the two views with a simple keystroke.
Engineering units with custom scaling ability on all traces independently.
Each recorded file is data and time stamped
Full trace management (change line width, color, background color, etc.)
Ability to set an unlimited number of vertical cursors (time markers) to a single trace, all traces in a window, and across multiple windows giving total flexibility. All values are shown simultaneously in the expanded results table.
All vertical cursors may be altered via expanded results table by typing in time values to 0.001S giving maximum control.
All horizontal cursors may be altered via expanded results table by typing in Y value to 0.01 giving maximum control.
Up to six filters may be applied to each trace
Copy filters set to a channel to all other channels in 1 simple operation
A memory store and recall (2 memory settings) for the filters set to a channel to easily be applied to any other channel. These memory settings are kept stored indefinitely until changed by the user
Filters include: Rectify, Average, RMS, Velocity, Offset, Scale, Integrate, EMG Work Done, LPF 1st Order, Acceleration, Median Frequency, Mean Frequency
Versatile Data Export for import into other applications for further analysis
ASCII export of raw data
ASCII export data in engineering units
ASCII export traces after filters have been applied in engineering units
Wave file format
Expanded ability to include text notes with data files
Power Spectrum Graph
FFT high pass filters: remove DC, remove very low frequencies
FFT window functions:
Inputs and Alarms - The analogue and digital inputs are displayed in engineering units during data acquisition. Audible and visible high and/or low alarms may be set to any or all of the channels
Comprehensive Help menu that may be used as a tutorial for both the hardware and software operations.
As soon as a file is opened it is displayed as a raw EMG file and may then be subject to any or all of the features listed above. The data may be left as a whole or truncated into smaller files of specific data for further analysis. Of course not only EMG data may be displayed at any one time. The Y axis may be labelled with any units governed by what sensors where connected at the time of recording, e.g. Kg or lbs for force or degrees for limb movement. These units are then saved with the file and automatically compute every time the file is reopened.
The digital inputs are displayed on a separate graph to the analog inputs. Using this facility during gait analysis, toe and heel contact on and off may be obtained using the contact switch assembly type no. FS4.
The Display to the left shows a Workspace containing unfiltered EMG data (abdominal muscles) with Goniometer data (hip flexion/extension) and EMG Power Spectrum.
Display video files and fully time synchronize them with data collected from DataLITE, DataLOG or DataLINK. Any video file compatible with Windows Media Player may be used. The video does not have to start or stop at the same time as the recording as they can easily be synchronised after capture. If the video file contains sound then this is played along with the video.
Once the video has been loaded, controls on the video window allow it to be played, paused and stopped. Linking the video to the data file automatically creates a cursor at the start of the data file. Clicking within a data file trace window will move the video frame being displayed to that moment in time; in the same way, moving a paused video display to a different frame will scroll the data trace display to show the data at that moment in time.
Video synchronization options include:
Simple synchronization – the video is synchronized to the start of the data file
Synchronization with one user defined alignment point – used when the desired alignment point is not the beginning of the data file
Synchronization to both start and end of data file – increases precision of synchronization
Synchronization with two user defined alignment points – used when the desired alignment points are not the beginning and end of the data file
A RF Channel Optimisation Test designed specifically for DataLITE, is an easy way to detect errors on all 32 frequencies available to DataLITE and determines the optimum combination of RF Channels to use.
DataLITE communications between the Dongle (version 4 firmware or higher) and associated sensors use 4 frequencies out of a possible 32 within the range of 2.403GHz to 2.480GHz; the choice of 'RF Channel' number selects which 4 to use.
The RF Channel test performs multiple transmissions of data on all available frequencies in sequence without using any error correction. A result of 100% means that all data transmissions on that frequency have been successfully transmitted and received. The ideal 'RF Channel' to use would be one where all 4 frequencies used by that RF Channel are 100%.
The Expanded Results Table showing all results of all channels simultaneously. Multiple traces/graphs/windows from a single file or from multiple files may be compared. The spreadsheet style table displays the following data for each trace:
Top marker (if applied) in engineering units
Bottom Marker (if applied) in engineering units
Over Excursions – number of excursions over the Top marker - The minimum time above the marker to count as an excursion is set by the user with a default value of 0.1 seconds
Under Excursions – number of excursions below the Bottom marker - The minimum time below the marker to count as an excursion is set by the user with a default value of 0.1 seconds
Start time in hrs:minutes:seconds.mS
End time in hrs:minutes:seconds.mS
Start Value for time markers
End Value for time marker
Difference/sec for the marked time
Trend – calculated using Linear Regression Analysis
Time to Maximum
Time to Minimum
Create and save Workspaces. A Workspace is the complete appearance of the application along with the settings used within the program. This includes:
The names of all open data files
The position and size of all windows
The position, size and appearance of all application toolbars and tool windows
Application preferences and options
All markers and filters
All zoom and scroll settings
Multiple workspaces may be saved. In addition, when the application is closed, the current complete workspace is automatically saved in a file called 'Workspace when last closed'.
The workspace with the associated data files may be saved as a ZIP file which can be extracted using many third party applications. This facilitates electronic mailing of the data analysis results.
