Electromyography: Physiology, Engineering, and Non-Invasive by Roberto Merletti, Philip J. Parker

By Roberto Merletti, Philip J. Parker

A whole assessment of electromyography with contributions from pacesetters within the box

In fresh years, insights from the sector of engineering have illuminated the enormous strength of electromyography (EMG) in biomedical expertise. that includes contributions from key innovators operating within the box this day, Electromyography unearths the large functions of EMG information in components as different as neurology, ergonomics, workout body structure, rehabilitation, circulate research, biofeedback, and myoelectric keep an eye on of prosthesis.

Bridging the distance among engineering and body structure, this pioneering quantity explains the basic strategies had to notice, comprehend, method, and interpret EMG indications utilizing non-invasive electrodes. Electromyography indicates how engineering instruments equivalent to types and sign processing tools can significantly increase the perception supplied by means of floor EMG signals.

Topics lined include:

  • Basic body structure and biophysics of EMG generation
  • Needle and floor electrode detection techniques
  • Signal conditioning and processing issues
  • Single- and multi-channel ideas for info extraction
  • Development and alertness of actual models
  • Advanced sign processing techniques

With its clean engineering point of view, Electromyography bargains physiologists, doctors, and scholars in biomedical engineering a brand new window into the far-reaching probabilities of this dynamic know-how.

Example text

In human limb muscles the average motor unit territory has an irregular round shape with a diameter of about 10 mm [1,13]. In neurogenic disorders, when some motor neurons degenerate, the surviving motor neurons grow new axonal sprouts establishing synaptic contacts with the denervated muscle fibers (collateral reinnervation). As a result the motor unit may become much denser and larger, often containing several times more than normal number of muscle fibers, although its territory does not increase [14].
