ing rest or during and immediately after physical exertion, when our eyes move, e.g. while reading a text, or when we strain and stretch our muscles? We can study these activities using non-invasive electrophysiological methods. TESS Electrophysiogy includes the complete equipment to perform seven exciting experiments.

Wireless data transmission for experiments in sports medicine Easy to use (plug & measure), perfect for first-time computer use in sciences Literature with student worksheets and teacher answer sheets Long-term measurements possible, e.g. for fitness tests
