  • ISEK 2012 - Pre-Congress Workshop

    Novel sEMG decomposition system
    for the study of motor units and muscle activation

    Venue, Date and Time

    Queensland University of Technology, Gardens Point - ISEK Conference 2012
    Wednesday July 18th, 2012
    3.00-5.00 PM

    Event Description

    The workshop will present a new technology, named Precision Decomposition of surface EMG signal (PDsEMG), which automatically decomposes a complex sEMG signal into the trains of action potentials belonging to individual motor units in an accurate and reliable manner. The technology provides parameters which are of primary importance for studies of motor unit control, such as the firing statistics of motor units, the timing of activation of individual motor units, and the shape of their action potentials. The workshop will illustrate how this novel technology can be used to expand our understanding of motor unit properties and control strategies, and how the results of this technology can be validated. It will present current research studies using the technology and its applications in the field of motor control and sport biomechanics.
