    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:

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

    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 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

    Pope MH, Svensson M, Andersson GB, Broman H, Zetterberg C.
