Abstract

There is a need for physiological measurement devices in animal well-being research that are capable of measuring the physiological parameters of the animals sufficiently long times. The paper presents an output of a project where implantable, logging measurement device has been designed and in vivo measurements have been conducted with the prototype. The measurement device is capable of measuring the ECG, activity and temperature of an animal.The signals provided by the device are of high quality and signal analysis can be made directly from the raw signal without exhaustive signal pre-conditioning.
