In order to avoid complications or adverse side effects encountered with the use of anesthesia, implantation, or at-risk/fragile models, recording are performed on unanaesthetised rats.
Vigil subjects can be single or group-housed, favoring experiments that comply with the 3R’s and IACUC* protocols.
Short connections between transmitter and electrodes, use of battery, and wireless transmission allows to isolated animals from any source of electrical noise and provide a very clean ECG signal.

This wireless digital telemetry system for rodents 50g or more, acquires up to 2-lead ECG and postural activity data.
rodentPACK features include:
** Has been demonstrated to pose no known hazards in a specified MRI environment with specified conditions of use (static magnetic field strength, switched gradient magnetic field, time-varying magnetic field, radiofrequency fields, and specific absorption rate). Additional conditions, including specific configurations of the rodentPACK, may be required.
Transmitters are reusable indefinitely by simply changing the battery. Batteries permit up to 6+ days of continuous acquisition and can be replaced at minimal cost.
