DataLITE Wireless Sensors & Systems

Use the latest generation of biofeedback wireless sensors and systems to record joint movement analysis, EMG and force data real-time. Quick and easy to set-up, the DataLITE wireless sensors provide superb quality of signal and gives the test subject total freedom of movement.

DataLITE wireless sensors require the DataLITE Dongle (receiver) as the interface to the computer and allows for up to 16 wireless sensors to be connected on a single channel with a range of 40m.

DataLITE is available as a medical or non-medical device and carries a two-year warranty!

Electrogoniometer

Using the exact same technology as our world standard wired electrogoniometers for dynamic joint movement measurements of the wrist, neck, elbow, ankle, hip, knee or back.

Torsiometer

Single-axis Torsiometers are designed for measurement of rotations in one plane e.g. forearm pronation/supination or neck axial rotation. If the Torsiometer is bent in planes X-X or Y-Y the output remains constant. All Torsiometers function in the same way, the difference being physical size.

Surface EMG Sensor

With a bandwidth of 10-490 Hz, a built in x1000 gain amplifier and wireless transmitter, surface EMG signals are collected and sent to the Biometrics software for analysis. EMG data can be synchronized real-time with other sensors as part of a complete DataLITE system.

Accelerometer

The DataLITE wireless Accelerometer will measure both dynamic acceleration (i.e. vibration) and static acceleration (i.e. gravity).

Handheld Trigger Switch

The DataLITE Handheld Trigger Switch provides the user with a very accurate solution of synchronizing DataLITE with DataLOG or other 3rd party systems, such as a Vicon or Qualisys motion-analysis camera based system.

Contact Switches

Digital inputs for gait analysis or other projects requiring collection of contact on/off data. The Contact Switches simply plug into a DataLITE wireless Electrogoniometer. And for example, mounting a goniometer on the ankle, and attaching the contact switches on the foot, it allows the researcher co-ordinate the gait parameters (heel strike, full foot, heel off, toe off) with the dynamic movement of the ankle joint.

Adaptor

The DataLITE Adaptor is used with the DataLITE Dongle to readily interface the following devices: Dynamometer, MyoMeter, Pinchmeter, ForcePlates and Load Cells.

The various load/strength data collected may be synchronized real-time with other DataLITE sensors as part of a complete DataLITE system. Interfacing is effortless as all the precision calibration data is pre-programmed within the microprocessor controlled units.

The Biometrics Hand Dynamometer utilises precision load cell technology to increase the sensitivity and accuracy of measurement of even very low grip strength forces. By using the industry standard Jamar design, exterior researchers can compare with standardized normative data. The Biometrics Ltd Dynamometer can also be connected to various 3rd party interfaces.

The unique electronic Pinchmeter has a low profile design that enables the researcher to accurately quantify pinch strength at closer to end range than any other device. The Biometrics Ltd Pinchmeter can also be connected to various 3rd party interfaces.

Pinchmeter (P200)
Dimensions Diameter 45 x 6mm
Mass 65g
Accuracy Better than 0.6% Rated Load
Rated Load 0 to 22.5Kg, or 0 to 50lb

The MyoMeter allows the user to quantify the force applied during Manual Muscle Testing, which is a procedure for the evaluation of the function and strength of individual muscles and muscle groups based on effective performance of a movement in relation to the forces of gravity and manual resistance.

The MyoMeter is held by the examiner with the curved anvil placed against the body part to be tested. The limb is stabilized and held in the desired starting position. The patient is instructed to hold the limb in position and resist the force applied by the examiner. The examiner applies force gradually until the limb is depressed. The force required to move the limb is referred to as the 'breaking force'.

By connecting the MyoMeter to the DataLITE and using the management and analysis software, force may be displayed and analysed in units of Newtons, Kg or lb. The MyoMeter is supplied with two general purpose anvils (1 x small, 1 x large).
