Dear Colleagues:

Some physical therapists I work with are interested in analyzing the effect
of baby walkers and the newer baby saucers on posture and development. They
are particularly interested in the electromyographic activity in these
children. What would be the most appropriate means to objectively analyze
the EMG signal? Obviously, obtaining a maximum voluntary contraction from an
eight month old and normalizing is not a viable option. I have some ideas,
but if anyone would like to share their thoughts with me I'd appreciate it.
In anticipation, I thank you.
Sincerely


Steve
