Dear all,
Thanks very much for your suggestions to my previous question. The
next problem which has been bugging me is this:
What is the best method to normalise EMG amplitude data? I am
interested in normalising data obtained during gait (or parts of the
gait cycle such as heel strike), and I have been using a maximum
voluntary contraction to compare my RMS values. This appears to be a
bit variable, and I wonder whether anybody knows of a better way to
normalise. ( I am testing muscles around the hip, knee and ankle)
Thanks a lot,
Kevin
