Get Excited About Human Physiology

Help your students get to know the skin they’re in with our human physiology sensors! Whether they are aspiring health professionals or budding biomedical engineers, your students will gain a deeper understanding of human physiology through hands-on biology learning.

Join our director of biology, John Melville, as he demonstrates a variety of easy-to-use sensors, including our Go Direct® Hand Dynamometer and Go Direct EKG Sensor, all using our Vernier Graphical Analysis® Pro app. 

Attendees will

  • Learn how to compare and contrast students' electrocardiograms while studying the heart.
  • Correlate measurements of grip strength and electrical activity of muscles with fatigue. 
  • Gain hands-on knowledge of data collection and interpretation using Graphical Analysis Pro. 

This introductory webinar is geared toward biology educators who are just getting started with Vernier or who are not very familiar with our biology solutions. Join us to explore three Vernier tools and get your top questions answered. 

Featured Products


Go Direct Hand Dynamometer: Wirelessly measure grip strength, pinch strength, and muscle fatigue with the Go Direct Hand Dynamometer.


Go Direct EKG Sensor: Wirelessly measure electrical activity in the heart and electrical signals produced during muscle contractions with the Go Direct EKG Sensor.


Vernier Graphical Analysis Pro: With the Pro version of our Graphical Analysis app, students can visualize and interact with experiment data collected via nearly any Vernier sensor—and you can enrich live instruction while providing more opportunities for students to interact with and analyze data outside of class time.
