Actical Activity for Animals
Actical activity monitor provide an easy way to obtain, analyze and graph long-term data on the activity patterns of your multiply-housed or free-ranging research animals.
Changes in activity can be a useful indicator of an animal's response to food, drugs, pain, health or well-being or other conditions. It's also useful to study activity patterns relative to observed behavior and correlate the two. Future activity analysis can indicate with confidence what activities were taking place for a particular time and duration.
Changes in sleep patterns can also provide great insight into an animal's response to various inputs or mental health. Changes in nutrition, exercise, pain and state of mind all can affect sleep quality.
