Description

NEW Rat/Mice Convertible options

 


One of the most sophisticated solutions on the market!

Ideal for exercise training and fatigue studies in rodents, Panlab’s treadmills are recognized as some of the most sophisticated solutions on the market.

 

  • Efficient bench footprint
  • Durable, high quality finish
  • Smart control unit with powerful graphic touchscreen
  • Extensive range of speed choices for low to high speed requests
  • Choice of many stop conditions for defining fatigue
  • Constant electrical shock intensity to minimize inter-individual variability
  • Positive and negative belt slope selections
  • Shock or air puff stimulation option
  • Indirect calorimetry option for respiratory metabolism studies
  • Can be combined with telemetry (heart rate, temperature…) for more extensive cardiovascular studies

 


Applications

Treadmills are a popular tool for studying the physiological adaptations and possible benefits resulting from exercise. Applications span a wide range of research interests including sports performance, metabolic diseases, cardiovascular disorders, spinal cord injury recovery and chronic pain models.

 


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).



NEW 1-LANE AND 2-LANE RAT/MICE CONVERTIBLE TREADMILLS!

Panlab now offers a complete line of rat/mice convertible treadmills. Similarly as the 5-lane treadmills, the 1-lane and 2-lanes rat treadmills can now be easily converted into a mouse treadmill. New grid, lid and air puff accessories are now available for this purpose (see the How to Order Tab).
 


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.

OUR SOLUTIONS FOR CARDIOVASCULAR RESEARCH

Treadmills are popular tools for studying the physiological adaptations and possible benefits resulting from exercise.

Our treadmill solutions can be enhanced by integrating telemetry to measure cardiovascular endpoints, leading to a better understanding of the full response on the cardiovascular system.

The treadmills can also be combined with the evaluation of respiratory metabolism (V02max), making it possible to observe in real time the physiological changes related with respiratory metabolism and performance during exercise.
