PAM Pressure Application Measurement (for joint pain)

Product Code:38500
The P.A.M. (Pressure Application Measurement) device is a novel tool for measuring mechanical pain threshold. It was specifically designed and validated for Arthritis research and is therefore especially suited to assess joint hypersensitivity in rodent knees or ankles. 
This product warranty can be extended up to 24 Additional Months.

The PAM device can also be used to measure mechanical sensitivity in the mouse or rat paw, by using a specific Paw Pressure Transducer (optional).

The PAM applies a quantifiable force for direct stimulation of the joint and for automatic readout of the response.

The operator simply wears a special force sensor on his or her thumb and the peak amplifier measures the force which elicits the animal response (normally, limb withdrawal).

Each PAM device comes standard with two force sensors, which have been specially designed to apply force to rat and mouse joints.

The device includes as standard both a control unit with internal memory and the NEW DCA software for signal monitoring, data transfer and analysis. Once saved, data can be browsed on the control unit and/or trasferred to a PC in proprietary, Excel (.xls) or text (.txt) format, to be managed by most statistical analysis packages available on the market.

The force is applied directly to the joint Direct measurent of evoked pain
Specifically designed for arthritis research The applicators are shaped for rodents knee and ankle
Paw pressure transducer is an optional PAM can also be used as a hand-held Randall-Selitto device
