PASPORT Hand Grip Heart Rate Sensor - PS-2186

PS2186_inuse_MAIN.jpg

Overview

The PASPORT Hand Grip Heart Rate Sensor is the newest and easiest way to measure resting and exercise heart rate. The design allows students to measure heart rate without the restriction and inconvenience of belts or clips. Extra long cords allow students to freely increase their physical activity in order to determine exercise heart rate.

To measure heart rate at rest or during exercise, simply grip the handles and the sensor measures the number of times the cardiac muscle contracts per minute. Middle school life science students can use the PASPORT Hand Grip Heart Rate Sensor to compare resting and exercise heart rate. High school and university biology and physiology students can measure and compare resting, exercise and recovery heart rate to determine physical fitness levels. Use the PASPORT Hand Grip Heart Rate Sensor to add technology to AP Biology Lab 10: Physiology of the Circulatory System.

Typical Applications

  • Measure and compare resting, exercise and recovery heart rate to determine physical fitness levels
  • AP Biology Lab 10: Physiology of the Circulatory System

How It Works

Like all PASPORT sensors, the PASPORT Hand Grip Heart Rate Sensor is "plug and play" once connected to a PASPORT interface. Just grip the handles, and the sensor uses an internal noise reducing and averaging technique to give the user the best heart beat reading.

Three sensor LED's give the user an idea of what's happening:

  • Amber (STANDBY) tells the user that the unit is ready to collect data but the handgrips are not being held.
  • Green (ACQUIRE) tells the user that the handgrips are being held and the sensor is acquiring the heart beat.
  • Red (BEATS) flashes once the sensors "sees" a good heart beat. Flashes with each beat.
