Animal Actiwave Cardio
The Actiwave Cardio is a waterproof single channel ECG waveform recorder. It consists of two electrodes connected by a short lead which simply clip onto two standard ECG pads worn on the chest. It also contains a tri-axial accelerometer, the signal from which can be used to determine the subject’s resting body position. Heart rate would be calculated from the raw ECG using Acqknowledge data analysis software or any other software capable of reading EDF+ file format.
The best ECG signals can usually be picked up by placing the round end of the Actiwave Cardio unit in a position midway between and below V1 and V2.
