Exercise Heart rate sensor - DT298
This sensor is ideal for measuring one’s heart rate before, during and after exercise and is comprised of a wireless transmitter belt and a Pulse Receiver Module that plugs into the data logger. The Heart Rate Sensor, specifically the transmitter belt, senses the electrical signals generated by the heart and each heart beat sends an electrical signal to the Receiver Module, enabling the heart rate to be measured.
Typical experiments performed using this sensor include comparing heart rates, evaluating heart rates of different individuals, comparing that of athletes vs. inactive individuals, monitoring the heart rate before, during and after brief vigorous activity (e.g. pushups) and monitoring the speed at which the heart rate returns to normal following exercise (recovery rate).
