    Dear subscriber:

    The following is the summary of EMG surface electrodes for Noraxon
    I received. Great appreciation to all who respond.

    Dear Fong-Chin,
    We also have a Noraxon Telemyo EMG system. We use Medi-Trace Pellet
    Electrodes ECE 1801. Contrary to Noraxon's advertising the system seems to
    allow as much movement artefact as any other system. We have to take as
    much care with preparation of the subject as ever. That is, we prepare with
    shaving then abrading the area lightly with fine sandpaper then alcohol
    swab. When attaching the electrodes we tape the wires but not the electrode
    Hope you have plenty of success with your system.

    Dear Fong-Chin,
    I do not have a Noraxon system, but have requested funds
    for their Telemyo system on a grant that is pending. Can
    you provide me with your impressions of the system, good and
    bad points? I'd appreciate it. Also, I believe that the
    system uses snap on electrodes. If so, I have found that the
    electrodes manufactured by Vermont Medical Inc., Industrial
    Park, Bellows Falls, VT 05101, are ideal for EMG recording.
    I have used them with an old Colbourn EMG system. They adhere
    well to the skin for relatively long time periods and are
    flexible. I have sampled their A10005-5Ot, A10005-T, and
    A10001 (infant sized, breathable) electrodes. I found the
    latter to be most satisfactory.
