I would like to ask your help in understanding a technology I have only
recently heard of - mechanomyography. I have found several references of
the application of this technology through conventional database searches
(e.g., Medline). This technology has been used to study "muscle activity"
in a variety of circumstances. My problem is understanding what
mechanomyography is. Could you please help me by describing

1) the basis of the signal
2) the transducer
3) applications of this technology
4) relationship to EMG (which is better to use in what circumstances)
5) limitations of this technology.

Any information would be appreciated. I will post a summary of the replies.
