PortaMon

Measures oxy-, deoxy- and total hemoglobin in muscle tissue; enabling you to get insight in local oxygen consumption, blood volume and blood flow.

 

Features

The PortaMon is currently the only wearable, wireless NIRS unit on the market especially designed for muscle research. It uses a Bluetooth connection, which even enables you to record online while the subject is on a running track. For larger distances the PortaMon can also store its data inside, ready for downloading afterwards.

Highlights

  • Wireless NIRS device
  • Bluetooth connection (up to 150 meters)
  • On board data collection (+50 hours)
  • Superior analysis software, Oxysoft

Applications & user research

The PortaMon offers the same possibilities that the larger NIRS devices give you. Next to the standard concentration changes of oxy-, deoxy- and total hemoglobin, this device also provides a value of tissue saturation: the percentage of oxygenated hemoglobin. The PortaMon uses a Bluetooth connection, which even enables you to record online while the subject is, eg. running on a track. For larger distances the PortaMon can also store its data internally, ready to be downloading afterwards. A third possibility is to store data in our purpose-build Android app. 

The PortaMon is mainly used for sports science (Buchheit 2011, Hesford 2012, Jones 2013) but could also be used for other areas such as rehabilitation (Wang 2012*, Gayda 2014*), mitochondrial function (Ryan 2012*) and even for urology research (Macnab 2008). All publications with the PortaMon can be found on our publications page.

PortaMon accessories

All of our NIRS devices can be combined with the PortaSync. It is a handheld device for synchronisation of the different types of instrumentation and the data files they produce.

NIRS - add ons

Would you like more than 1 NIRS device? You can measure with multiple (different) Artinis NIRS devices at the same time. All data is synchronised and stored in one datafile. We also offer NIRS EEG packages.
