Activity and movement are fundamental diagnostic parameters of animal behaviour. However, measuring long-term individual movement within groups was not possible until recently. Our ActivityMonitor provides accurate individual movement data in a fully automated way. This is a unique solution for the 24/7 long-term tracking of individual animals living in groups which requires no operator attention.
The sensor plate placed underneath a cage detects individuals and tracks them as they move through the cage. Automated and long-term assessment of individual activity is made possible without having to place individuals in separate cages. The ActivityMonitor utilises advanced RFID-technology. See how it works in a video.
The ActivityMonitor is based on RFID-technology. It allows the tracking of an individual in a group.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology identifies and tracks an individual within a group of animals. All animals have to carry subcutaneous transponders. These transponders require no battery and are powered by the electro-magnetic fields emitted by the RFID-Readers.
