g.MOBIlab+: Specs & Features

The wireless biosignal acquisition system in your pocket.

g.MOBIlab+ g.tec's portable biosignal acquisition and analysis system

g.MOBIlab+ is the perfect tool for recording multimodal biosignal data on a standard PC or notebook. This allows investigation of brain-, heart-, and muscle- activity, eye movement, respiration, galvanic skin response, pulse and other body signals. g.MOBIlab+ is available in two versions: the 8 channel EEG  and the multi-purpose version. A switch can be connected for external triggering of the data.

Available software components

g.MOBIlab+ becomes even more powerful with the software options g.tec provides for Windows and Linux. Programmers can use the C or MATLAB APIs to integrate the device into their own software programs. LabView and Simulink are used to analyze the biosignal data in real-time and to run BCI experiments, and the recording software for the PC is used to visualize and store biosignal data.

Product Highlights

  • Acquire EEG, ECG, EOG, EMG and other signals even outside your lab
  • On-line visualization and storage of up to 16 channels on a notebook / PC
  • Various software solutions available (driver/API, recording software, MATLAB/SIMULINK/LabVIEW, ...)
  • Transmit online biosignal data wirelessly via bluetooth 2.0 to a notebook / PC
  • Log data directly on an internal flash card memory (Mini-SD card)
  • Integrate the device into your real-time system under SIMULINK (BCI, neuro-, biofeedback)
  • Recommended by BCI2000 & approved under OpenViBE


"Thanks to the gMOBIlab+ in combination with active electrodes we are able to capture biosignals such as EMG and EEG with high quality, even while users are moving."

 - Sandro Hardy, MSc
   Technical University of Darmstadt, DE

"I am using g.MOBIlab+ with intendiX at the Ars Electronica Center in a public exhibition and even in a very croudy environment it delivers fast and accurat data of each participant."

 - Mag. Erika Mondria
   Head of Brain Lab at Ars Electronica, AT

"The g.MOBIlab+ is using AA batteries that work also at extreme low temperatures, so it doesn't require a charger or power socket. This is especially useful for experiments in high altitude medicine."

 - Dr. Christoph Guger
   CEO at g.tec medical engineering, AT

More Product Details

Excellent data quality

g.MOBIlab+ is equipped with low-noise biosignal amplifiers and a 16-bit A/D converter (256 Hz), which guarantees excellent data quality and a high signal-to-noise ratio. For sophisticated data analyses, g.MOBIlab-data can be imported directly into g.BSanalyze, the toolbox for advanced biosignal processing and analyses.
Data can also be converted into ASCII-format for other programs like MS-Excel or foreign toolboxes.

Important information

g.MOBIlab+ is not a medical device. The product is NOT intended to be used as a medical device. However, the product meets the IEC 60601-1 standard, as it is a more rigorous standard.


g.MOBIlab+ now provides two additional features, improving the system's mobility and opening new application fields. 

New wireless data transfer tools let you send data to your Pocket PC, notebook or desktop PC with Bluetooth "class I" technology. Monitor biosignals under every imaginable experimental condition.

Use g.MOBIlab+ as a powerful biosignal data logger. After visually checking data quality on the screen, the device can be disconnected from the computer.  Data are stored on a flash memory card with up to 2 GB space.

Measure biosignals reliably - even in the Himalayas!

During an Austrian expedition to Chulu Far West in Nepal (6419 m), g.MOBIlab+ was used to measure the effects of high altitude on both EEG and ECG parameters. The expedition started in Besi Sahar at an altitude of 700 m near Annapurna I. The team gained between 300 and 600 m each day and settled in to basecamp at 4800 m. After one night in base camp, the high camp was established at 5600 m on the Chulu glacier. At 3 AM, the team started to climb Chulu Far West (right picture) and reached the summit at 11 AM. g.MOBIlab+ was used to record 2 EEG channels over sensorimotor areas and 1 ECG channel from 2 expedition members. The persons performed a self-paced finger movement every 10 seconds. The onset and offset of each movement was recorded by an external switch connected to g.MOBIlab.

EEG and ECG data recording at the Dachstein glacier

At the 2003 Nordic Fitness Days at the Dachstein glacier, organized by the Planaibahnen from October 24th-26th, g.MOBIlab+ was tested in measuring EEG and ECG data from skiers and mountaineers going up the Dachstein summit with the cable car. The study was part of the research program of the ARGE Alpinmed. A total of 50 data sets were acquired within 3 days. Data recordings began at a base station at 1200 m. Then,  physiological data from subjects were measured in the cable car and at the top station at 2700 m. The subjects had to perform a stimulus-reaction paradigm to test the reliability of g.MOBIlab+ under bad weather and field conditions. In all 50 sessions, data quality was excellent, and even the EEG data displayed high signal-to-noise ratio. The g.MOBIlab+ system was rated excellent by the participants, both for ease of use and for high data quality and reliability while performing physiological measurements with experimental paradigms.
