Abstract

An extraluminal displacement transducer has been developed for simultaneously recording the mechanical activity in two perpendicular directions and the electrical activity of the intestinal serosa. The length variations in two perpendicular directions were measured by means of strain gauges bounded on two pairs of lamellae embedded in a rigid stand. The electrical activity was recorded by means of four electrodes situated at the extremity of these lamellae. The electrical gauges of each pair of lamellae are connected to form a Wheatstone bridge. This device allows establishment of a correlation between the mechanical displacement of the intestinal wall serosa and electrical potentials by means of studies of long duration.
