It has sensors tomeasure ECG, Photoplethysmograph (PPG) that measures changes occur in blood optically, skin temperature, fall detection and Non-Invasive Systolic Blood Pressure (NISBP).
Although devices like the vaginal photoplethysmograph (a tampon-like device to measure vaginal arousal) have been around since the late 1970s, the lack of established guidelines for their use has led to methodological variability across studies, difficulties making cross-study comparisons, and gaps in knowledge.
The HeartTracker 3.0 Stress Reduction Software (215 Euro) monitors the parameters of heart rate variability (HRV) derived from a PPG (photoplethysmograph) signal.
The electrodermal activity (sweating) measure was attached to the left two middle fingers, and a photoplethysmograph was attached to the left thumb to measure heart-rate.
All women watched neutral and erotic films while their vaginal pulse amplitude--a reliable measure of genital arousal--was measured by a vaginal photoplethysmograph.
All women watched neutral and erotic films while their vaginal pulse amplitude--a reliable measure of genital arousal-was measured by a vaginal photoplethysmograph. The women provided a continuous measure of their subjective responses by changing the position of a lever.
In effect, a single wavelength/single site NIR system is essentially a brain photoplethysmograph, while a multiple wavelength system at a single site can be thought of as a cerebral pulse oximeter (Moyle, 1994).
All of the women watched neutral and erotic films while their vaginal pulse amplitude--a reliable measure of genital arousal--was measured by a vaginal photoplethysmograph. The women in the study also provided a continuous measure of their subjective responses by changing the position of a lever.
Finger temperature (1 sample/sec) was assessed using a thermister and Flexcomp software, and finger pulse volume (3 samples/sec) via an LED photoplethysmograph and peak detection software developed in our laboratory.
A vaginal photoplethysmograph (VPP; Technische Handelsonderneming Coos, The Netherlands) was used to assess women's genital responses by recording changes in vaginal pulse amplitude (VPA).
