The REACH-DL is a home-based lab kit designed for distance learning and online students. The kit contains the sensors, recording software, and write-ups to perform over 15 core experiments introducing your students to the fundamentals of cardiovascular, neuromuscular and respiratory physiology.
Each exercise is laid out in a step-by-step, simple-to-use fashion, allowing your students to perform hands-on experiments at home, easily analyze their findings, and generate a report.
Charles Zwemer from Dickinson Colleges solves the online challenges using the iWorx REACH-DL
|Quick Start: Learn how to use LabScribeDL and the iWorx systems using pulse.|
|ECG – Rest & Recovery: Record an Electrocardiogram (ECG) and study the effects of exercise on an ECG and pulse.|
|ECG – Exercise & O2 Saturation: Record an Electrocardiogram (ECG) and O2 Saturation and examine the relationship between the ECG and the percentage of O2 in the blood.|
|ECG – Temperature & Arm Position: Record an Electrocardiogram (ECG) and examine the relationship of the ECG to the peripheral circulation.|
|Diving Reflex: Study the mammalian diving reflex and the effect on pulse.|
|Grip Force: Measure EMG ? Grip Force. Study the effect of fatigue.|
|Muscles in Opposition: Measure EMGs from antagonistic muscle groups.|
|Electrooculogram (EOG): Measure Electrooculogram (EOG)and study muscle activity while doing a variety of different tasks including pursuit and saccades.|
|Electrogastrogram (EGG): Compare Electrogastrogram (EGG) on an empty and full stomach.|
|Targeted Exercise: Measure EMG in ‘active’ muscle groups to make sure that the exercise routine is being done properly.|
|Eyes vs. Ears: The study of whether sight or sound stimuli cause a faster reaction time.|
|Color Test: Measure reaction times to visual stimuli of different colors.|
|Rest & Recovery: Measure breathing depth and rate at rest and during recovery from exercise.|
|Exercise & O2 Saturation: Measure breathing depth and rate, and O2 saturation at rest and during recovery from exercise.|
|Breathing & Body Position: Examine the effects of gravity on breathing by measuring the differences in breathing depth and rate while resting and while sitting, standing, or lying down.|
|Activities & O2 Saturation: Measure oxygen saturation levels in the blood during normal breathing, apnea, shallow breathing, and other parameters.|
|EEG-CorticalArousal: Measure electroencephalogram (EEG) signals from the left and right cerebral hemispheres.|
|StroopEffect: Demonstrate the Stroop Effect. Study the effect of color stimuli on reading words|
The following guide is designed to highlight how to combine virtual and in-person hands-on laboratory learning using iWorx equipment.
A Hybrid Model can be used using both the iWorx TA Teaching kit as well as the iWorx REACH-DL Distance Learning System. Students that are learning in person on campus/in the laboratory will use the TA teaching kit – working in groups of 3 to 4 students. Students that are learning remotely will complete laboratory exercises using the REACH-DL distance learning system.
