Model MW60-1117

Basic Signal Analysis (BSA) Software


The MindWare Technologies' BSA Software offers the life science researcher a sophisticated array of tools to analyze autonomic function. Its ease of use, flexibility, graphical interface, and integration of proven and validated methodologies make these products the instruments of choice for researchers worldwide. The applications have proven to be a quick and accurate means of converting raw physiological data into meaningful statistical representations, allowing faster data reduction and analysis of autonomic function.


The new MindWare 3.0 Analysis Applications adds many significant upgrades to our respected signal processing suite. All of the MindWare Analysis Applications now include a full featured A/V playback tool (.mpeg). This playback is synchronized with the data collected and displays a movable cursor on the data that is time correlated to the video.  The configuration screen and analysis / event mode interface have been completely transformed into a single streamlined interface. The new applications also feature the ability to output to text files and excel documents or both.


The overall look and feel of the applications has been improved to compliment and integrate with the MindWare BioLab Acquisition software and hardware and utilize their full power and flexibility.



  • Compatible with Windows 7 and older
  • Calculate basic statistics (mean, median, mode, max, min, RMS, AC, DC) for any type of waveform
  • Signal-specific analysis
    • ECG: Rate, Mean Peak Amplitude
    • PLE, BP: Rate, Mean Peak Amplitude (FPA on PLE), and Mean Trough Amplitude
    • Respiration: Resp Rate
    • Activity Pad, Accelerometer: Wiggle Factor (measure of movement detected in signal) and TWF (sum of all calculated wiggle factors)
    • Computes PTT (pulse transit time) and FPA (finger pulse amplitude, mean peak amplitude) from ECG and PLE or BP
  • Scale each channel to desired units with preview of result on signal using the Map Ranges or Slope Intercept scaling methods
  • Auto-scaling of Skin Temperature data collected from BioNex chassis
  • Ability to view and analyze up to 8 channels simultaneously (All Channel mode)
  • Ability to zoom in on a single channel with marked peaks/troughs when applicable (Single Channel mode)



  • Three main analysis modes allow for indexing through the file by time, external events, or events and time. Each of these modes contains several settings, adding up to over 10 unique ways to view and analyze data.
  • Ability to filter event by type
  • Simultaneous audio/video and physiological playback, events clearly shown and labeled on analysis screen
  • Undock video from analysis window to resize/move freely
  • Ability to create output files as Excel spreadsheets, text documents, or both
  • Import/Export edited data
  • Unique analysis techniques for each specific application
  • Auto-analyze data allows for quick output to text or excel file without even viewing physiological signals
  • Powerful graphical editors for modifying physiological data and removing artifacts
  • Ability to import ASCII file and convert to .mw extension for use in analysis apps
