Incapacitance Tester: Incap

     
The new Columbus Instruments Incap incapacitance meter assesses the downward force applied by each hind-limb as it relates to injury or inflammation discomfort. InCap provides two precise force transducers. The subject's hind paw pads are placed onto each of these transducers and a special animal restrainer is provided to promote the proper location of animal pads on the respective force transducers. Once the animal is in place, activation of InCap initiates a measurement cycle during which a number of force measurements are performed and averaged. The period over which these measurements are recorded is under user control; adjustable between 2 to 8 seconds. At the conclusion of the measurement, the resulting data is displayed to a resolution of 0.01 gram-force. If connected to a PC by RS-232, InCap will transmit the numerical results and a data header containing user-defined information about the experiment and animal(s) under test.
