SKILLED REACH AND GRASP MODULE

Model 80880

Skilled Reach and Grasp Module
 
   
 

DETAILS

Skilled Reach and Grasp ModuleThe Skilled Reach and Grasp Module provides a new testing method to quantify the paw reaching skill in mice. Using our popular ABET II Software and Interfacing, the chamber dispenses a 45 mg pellet into the module and raises it up on the pedestal. The diving board attachment can be used to pinch the pellet providing a resistive force, increasing the difficulty of the task. Three different resistance levels can be achieved, 20, 40 or 60 grams. IR sensors keep track of the pellet’s location to ensure successful presentation of the pellet. Once the pellet is in position, lights on the inside of the module can be illuminated to signal the animal to make a coordinated reach attempt. An additional set of IR sensors identify when the animal is reaching and will detect successful reaches, drops, and failed attempts.

The test provides an objective quantification of reaching and forepaw dexterity. Added resistive component also gives finer resolution to the strength profile of the animals grip. The modular design allows the unit to be added to existing chambers or used in custom designs.
