Users can easily configure specific ramps and protocols on the compact benchtop treadmill for mice using the intuitive graphical user interface (GUI). Start and stop commands can be executed directly through the GUI, streamlining the experimental process. Users can conveniently save and load ramps for future use, ensuring consistency and efficiency in experimentation. Additionally, the ability to save animal positions along with current speeds facilitates further analysis, allowing for comprehensive data interpretation. Position estimation is built-in through reflective IR sensors, providing accurate tracking of the animal’s movements for enhanced research insights.
