  • Electromyography in Biomechanics

    I'm a math/stats person, and recently got suckered into EMG research by
    the local rehabilitation therapy department. It soon became obvious
    that little (valid) statistical methodology exists for comparison of
    EMG patterns (some classes of patterns being more or less fortunate
    than others).

    I'm curious to hear from the members of this list about what ways they
    might be using EMG in their work -- what variant of EMG signal is being
    used, what information is expected from that signal, what experimental
    design was used, and what math/stats techniques are applied.

    My work focusses on the linear envelope pattern (analogue sampling over
    over a finite period of time, full-wave rectification and low pass
    filtering, usually followed by digital sampling) of a set of muscles
    while a limb is moved through its full range of motion in one plane.
    There are many unanswered design and analysis questions for this form
    of signal.

    I look forward to hearing from some of you.
