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
The TESS set takes advantage of the easy to use measurement technology of Cobra4 with its plug & measure concept and wireless data transmission, thereby helping students to perform the experiments without hav-
