Subject: [BIOMCH-L] Best placing for Surface Electrode at trunk muscles.


dear members,
I am interested in posture and muscular activity, at present I need
information regarding best method in placing Surface-electrode at trunk
muscles (i.e thorac and lumbar erector spinae, obliquus abdominis ext and
int, rectus abdomini, and lattisimus dorsi.)
Please kindly help me with advise and explanation on it.

I also heard that McGill, Joseph Ng and Kippers published paper regarding
the matter, however I don't know precisely the title.
May be anybody can give me information about it.
I will be gratefull for any information.

Best Regards

SWIE Yuniarto

SWIE Yuniarto,
I, too, would be interested in knowing what you find from the listserve.
There is a text on surface EMG by Cram and Kasman Introduction to Surface
EMG, published by ASPEN that gives some guidelines and recommendations.

An excellent reference is in the text:

Cram, J.R., Kasman, G.S. (1998). Introduction to surface electromyography.
Gaithersberg, MD: Aspen Publishers, Inc.

Book may be found at: http://www.aspenpub.com

This book has great pictorials and specific sits for muscles of the
abdominals. I have used it for the rectus abdominis and external oblique
sites.

Dear Swie,
This is one of the papers you refer to:
Ng, J.K-F., Kippers, V. and Richardson, C.A. (1998) Muscle fibre orientation
of abdominal muscles and suggested surface electrode positions.
Electromyography and Clinical Neurophysiology 38(1):51-58.
See http://www.uq.edu.au/~anvkippe/profes/public.html for more information
about other papers using surface EMG on the trunk.

You might look at the book "Anatomical Guide for the Electromyographer: The
Limbs and Trunk," by Aldo Perotto (third edition) from Charles C. Thomas,
Springfield, Illinois, USA. (Earlier editions listed the authors as
Delagi, Perotto, Iazzetti and Morrison).

Dear Mr SWIE,

In the past I have used electrode placements shown in Pope et al:

Spine 1987 Dec;12(10):1041-5
The role of prerotation of the trunk in axial twisting
efforts.
