Exercise studies are performed in animals which have been trained to walk or run on a treadmill. This allows for the exploration of exercise regiments on pathology and treatment for a large variety of conditions. Transonic® products allow for chronic measurements to be made over the course of the experiment and during treadmill use.
Experts rely on Transonic’s Implantable flow probes for such important measurements as cardiac output, hind limb blood flow, carotid and renal arterial flows to understand the underlying mechanisms of pressor response, peripheral vasoconstriction, and muscle metaboreflex under the stress of mild to moderate exercise. The leads are exteriorized with a skin button or small connector for tether attachment during recordings. Alternatively, EndoGear® fully implantable telemetry allows for measurement of ECG, pressure and/or flow velocity during untethered motion in rats and larger animals.
