  • Acoustic myography

    Dear all,

    I am just starting a project related to the analysis of muscle sounds
    applied to the control of artificial limbs and what I have noticed is that
    many researchers use the following nomenclature: AMG, VMG and MMG, to refer
    to the mechanical phenomenon detectable at the surface of an active muscle.
    I had the idea that these references were associated with the type of sensor
    used to detect the signal (i.e., AMG – microphones). I would like to know
    if anyone could help me to clarify this doubt.

    In addition I would appreciate some suggestions of commercial equipment
    for acquiring both EMG and AMG signals simultaneously.

    After receiving responses I will resent a summary of them.

    Thank you,
    Adriano de Oliveira Andrade
