Download booklet, 1 Registration certificate, 135 Declaration of compliance, 112

Two-channels electromiograph (miograph, electroneuromiograph) Synapsis is an economy variant full functioned 4-channels electromiograph. The main advantages of the electromyograph are:

  • power supply from USB of computer or notebook enables to use the electromyograph in all conditions, even if there is no power source of 220 V;
  • 24-bit ADC enables to recognize signal components in amplitude range from 0.1 uV to 200 mV;
  • bandwidth from 0 to 10 000 Hz when sampling rate equals to 40 000 samples per second for each channel indicates high quality of electromyogram registration;
  • 32-bit data for each sample corresponds to the latest technical achievements of microprocessor technology;
  • electrodes application quality control in real time;
  • total digital control of all device parameters;
  • small dimension;
  • built-in control units of all types of stimulation;
  • wide spectrum of medical techniques which enables to implement both routine and advanced electromyographic studies, record evoked potentials of all modalities. It is also possible to implement stomatological research, necessary for studies of face muscles and nerves bioelectrical activity.

Function capabilities

Electromyograph (electroneuromyographic analyzer, myograph, neuromyograph) Synapsis is designed to make routine and advanced studies of muscle bioelectrical activity and nerve tissues. Electromyograph is connected to personal computer by means of USB. Power supply is provided from the computer (myograph doesnt need 220V). It enables to use the system not only in hospital but also in field conditions together with notebook accumulators of which supply the whole system. Interaction with the computer is implemented by means of special software.

The electromyograph work is based on complex medical methodology of electromyography with full set of stimulation techniques (other names: electroneuromyography, myography, neuromyography).Signals are recorded in 1, 2 or 4 commonly used channels in real time in monitoring mode. It is possible to change time scale and amplitude scope, parameters of low-pass and high-pass filters, parameters of stimulation, volume of electromyogram audio reproduction. The electromyograph has special joined input and special cable with electrodes for fixation on the head for evoked potentials registration. All specialists actions in process of work are automated (algorithms of required signals automatic detection, markers automatic placing, automatic computation of parameters etc. is applied). So, work with the system is considerably simplified. The signals are detected by either surface or needle electrodes. There are standard parameters in the data base which are compared with factual data. According to the data recordings calculation table of basic parameters is formed. Raw signals can be printed in selected separate portions. Recorded signals and all calculated parameters, graphs and charts can be stored in a database. It is possible to edit presented results when viewing them from the database. Electromiographs software realizes the following methods (by one or two channels):

  • interference, spontaneous, integral myogram analysis;
  • turn-amplitude and spectral analysis;
  • motor unit potential analysis;
  • computation of motor (in its proximal and distant regions) and sensory nerve conduction velocity;
  • analysis of masticatory muscles during jaws compression;
  • analysis of masticatory muscles during chewing;
  • facial muscle analysis;
  • wink reflex analysis;
  • detection of F-wave characteristics;
  • H-reflex analysis;
  • analysis of decremental Mresponse to rhythmical stimulation and tetanization;
  • MUP analysis;

Software

Electromyograph Synapsis software is designed for work under operating system Windows 7 and higher. The main distinctive feature of the software is ease of its use. No special skills are required for work with it except skill of computer using. Main window of electromyography program is designed similarly to desktop of operating system Windows. In the main window you can do the next actions:

  • open patients database;
  • open window of examination technique selection;
  • open software description;
  • view the contact information.

Database is necessary for storing the information about patients and examination results. Patients sorting in groups, internal system of the report generation according to examination results, results printing are available.

In the window of examination technique selection the required technique is selected from available list. Each technique corresponds to its own program which is represented as a window of signal registration with set of special information (electromyograph parameters, computations, graphs, charts). Technique implementation is determined by medical requirements. Interaction with the programs is implemented by means of easy-to-use friendly interface. Actually researcher can be totally concentrated on patient examination, not on searching one or another option. Each technique can be adjusted to a user, i.e. all colours, window positions, parameter lists can be changed according to the user wishes.
