The ATS takes QST to a new level, delivering painful and non-painful stimuli at a temperature range of 0ºC to 55ºC (expandable to -10ºC to 55ºC) with heating and cooling rate of up to 8ºC/sec. This opens new research opportunities in deep cold and heat pain studies.
PATHWAY model ATS is available as a complete mobile system on a uniquely designed clinical cart, containing electronic base unit, heavy-duty integrated cooling unit, analog output, TTL input & output, Digital Calibration Kit and PATHWAY model ATS – Advanced Thermal Stimulation Software.
PATHWAY ATS Thermodes are also available in anfMRI conditional configuration. ATS Thermodes can be used to deliver thermal stimuli inside fMRI scanners. By using a special fMRI filter, the PATHWAY system ensures accurate stimulation and reduced imaging artifacts.
Increased temperature range (-10ºC-55ºC) on selected models
