Wireless Headstages
Welcome to the new age of wireless recording with TBSI wireless headstages.   This line of leading edge headstages frees you from the wires, simplifies your hardware configuration and expands your research opportunities.   Perfect for research and experimentation involving freely moving animals.

The wireless systems consist of a battery powered headstage that sits on the animal and a receiver that sits several feet away.   Headstages come in a variety of channel counts and are available with various battery configurations and optional LEDs for video tracking.

Size comparison for a 32 channel wireless headstage.

NOTE: The 5 channel is smaller and 15 and 64 are similar in size.
Wireless Headstages
