Animal physiology

Investigation of numerous human disease models

Animal physiology is the scientific study of the life-supporting properties, functions and processes of animals or their parts. It focuses on how organisms, organ systems, organs, cells, and bio-molecules carry out the chemical or physical functions that exist in a living system. Therefore, the proper studying of animal physiology is crucial for understanding and evaluating underlying biological processes, behavioral states and animal response to different biological, social and environmental stimuli.

In animals, unlike humans, measurement of physiological functions is often preconditioned by a need to use invasive methods or to immobilize them by force, which induces the stress and significantly influences the outcomes of the measurement. On the other hand, anesthesia, for instance, has a profound effect on the heart or brain functions as well as precludes behavioral or mobility studies. How translatable then can be data obtained on animal models to humans?

Here come ECGenie, DigiGait and EMKA Technologies with state-of-the-art solutions. Using non-invasive and telemetric methods you can now easily monitor different physiological functions even in conscious, freely moving animals. Tens of thousands of animals have now been studied this way, advancing understanding of diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, spinal muscular atrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, cardiomyopathy and stroke, to name a few.
