  • Advice for EMG Electrodes


    I am looking for advice on what type of electrode to use for surface EMG of the masseter, the sternocleidomastiod, and the external obliques. We are looking at the activity of these muscles during clarinet playing. My team and I are new to using EMG. We are looking at players with spread and focused tone and we are unsure of what electrodes to use that will provide us with valid and reliable EMG readings. We are unsure of the electrode material, shape, and size for mainly the masseter muscle. We have tried to look in the literature and only found a couple articles and they don't describe the electrodes used.

    We also are looking for advice on what type of filtering to use for the raw output.

    Thanks for your time, we appreciate any advice.
