The electronic knee is composed or ah antenna, transducers, and a microtransmitter
that transmit force measurements into a computer-readable format.
Made by Breitling (Grenchen, Switzerland), this fully operational chronograph incorporates an emergency microtransmitter
The objectives of our study were to test and evaluate the efficacy of the combination of techniques reviewed above to study the behavioral ecology of refuged lizards, specifically 1) internal radio microtransmitters, 2) articulating borescope, 3) thermocouple attached to the borescope to measure body temperature, and 4) remote interrogation of implanted PIT tags.
Because this study was of short duration and designed to test various field techniques used to study lizards that refuge into rock cracks and crevices, we force fed 2-g radio microtransmitters into subjects (Santoyo-Brito and Fox, 2012) instead of surgically implanting them.

and espionage cameras--by taking the Canadian Security Intelligence Service's virtual tour at http:// www.
