Wireless Activity Wheel

Changes in voluntary wheel-running activities frequently serve as indicators of diseases in animal models. Our wireless activity wheels present the most cost-effective solution for monitoring rodents' voluntary exercise when compared to other commercial alternatives. They can function as standalone devices, or seamlessly integrate into a customized behavior apparatus, enabling automated analysis of mouse phenotypes in diverse aspects.

The largest drawback of voluntary exercise research is the inability to limit running distances. Excessive wheel running may cause some negative side effects. The LockSpin activity wheel enables users to precisely regulate the timing and duration of running sessions. The running surface can be locked and unlocked in accordance with the investigator’s specific protocol.
