T-Sens: Galvanic Skin Response (GSR)

T-Sens wireless GSR is a compatible sensor with CAPTIV for measuring the sweat conductivity from the finger tips


GSR, or Galvanic Skin Response, is a technique for recording the variation in the electrical characteristics of the skin. Electrodes are typically placed on the finger tips, which then is used to measure skin resistance that varies with the state of sweat glands in the skin. Research has show that an increase in skin conductance is an indication of psychological of physiological arousal. It is important to note that an increase in arousal can be linked to both positive and negative stimuli, therefore, GSR is a representation of the intensity of arousal, and not the type of emotion.

CAPTIV Software

CAPTIV is a flexible and scalable software and hardware solution enabling the synchronous recording, display, and analysis of multiple data sources and inputs. Up to 32 wireless sensors can be recorded and synchronized with 3rd party devices such as eye-trackers, dry EEG systems, and more. CAPTIV also has multiple analysis tools and reports, such as heart rate, joint angles, static and dynamic EMG, gait, arousal, and more. All of the data can be export into standard formats, or automatically integrated into reports.
