EKG Sensor - DT189

The EKG (Electrocardiogram) Sensor measures cardiac electrical potential waveforms (voltages produced during contractions of the heart). Utilizing this sensor enables students to investigate the electrical signals generated by their own heart. It consists of Fourier’s plastic sensor case and three electrode leads and also comes with a package of one hundred silver/silver chloride electrode patches that can be attached to the skin. The sensor’s circuitry isolates the user from the possibility of electrical shock.

The EKG Sensor is used to record the heart’s electrical activity. Typical experiments include monitoring personal electrocardiogram, that compare EKG graphs at rest and after activity or investigating EKG with different body positions.
