The PASPORT Hand-Grip Heart Rate Sensor provides a quick and easy method for students to measure their resting and exercise heart rates. The design allows students to measure heart rate without the restriction of inconvenient belts and clips. The extra long cords enable students to move freely as they increase their physical activity to determine their exercise heart rates.
To measure heart rate at rest or during exercise, simply grip the handles and the sensor will measure 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 rates to determine physical fitness levels.
Educational Use Only
This is not a medical device. PASCO products are designed for educational use only and should not be used in any apparatus involved with life support, medical testing, patient diagnosis, or industrial control/testing systems.

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 will use an internal noise reducing and averaging technique to generate an accurate heart rate reading.
Three LED’s are used to communicate the sensor's activity:
- 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.
|Sensor Range||0 to 240 beats per minute|
|Accuracy||± 1 beat per minute|
|Resolution||1 beat per minute|
