The EKG Sensor measures electrical signals produced during muscle contractions, and can be used to make standard 3-lead EKG tracings or surface EMG recordings.

Description

The EKG Sensor measures cardiac electrical potential waveforms (voltages produced during the contraction of the heart). It can be used to make standard 3-lead EKG tracings to record electrical activity in the heart, or to collect surface EMG recordings to study contractions in muscles in your arm, leg or jaw.
