Description

Panlab/Harvard Apparatus small animal treadmills are used for forced exercise training and accurate testing of fatigue in rodents. A control unit with touchscreen user interface plus the ability to perform individual lane stimulation (shock or air-puff) add convenience and experimental flexibility in setting up and managing study parameters.

The treadmill includes a shock grid which delivers electrical shock of constant intensity. An air-puff accessory option (air source not included) is interchangeable with shock, enabling the use of one or the other depending on experimental needs. The treadmill lanes have sufficient width for the animal to correct any errors in coordination, allowing an exact measurement of fatigue. Robust design and high-quality materials guarantee high performance under conditions of intensive use.

The control unit’s touchscreen allows control of the speed of the belt and the intensity of the stimulus. Parameters measured are recorded and shown on the control unit display, including belt speed and slope, distance covered, accumulated shock time, and shock intensity. The control unit provides current to the shocking grid and allows communication with the PC for data storage through the optional SEDACOM software (USB communication). The SEDACOM software is needed for editing and executing user-defined protocols of speed (acceleration, deceleration, customized, etc.). The sessions can be manually stopped independently in each lane or automatically using specific user-defined parameters.

 We also propose single lane treadmill configurations for metabolism studies (indirect calorimetry).

 

FEATURING NEW LOW SPEED OPTIONS!

A new speed range of 0.4 to 150 cm/s allows further flexibility in exercise and fatigue studies and opens its use to new fields of applications (non-rodent animal species, fine motor coordination…).

The new speed range would be available in all standard touchscreen treadmills except for the rabbit treadmill model.

For the OxyletPro airtight treadmill (Metabolism studies), the new low speed range is not available through the METABOLISM software (5 to 150 cm/s)

Please contact us for getting more information about how to upgrade the firmware of your touchscreen treadmill and get this new low speed options along together with some minor improvements/bug corrections.
