English | ITAe | 2012 | ISBN: 9789535108054 | 458 pages | PDF | 22 MB
This book presents an updated overview of signal processing applications and recent developments in Electromyography (EMG) from a number of diverse aspects and various applications in clinical and experimental research. It will provide readers with a detailed introduction to EMG signal processing techniques and applications, while presenting several new results and explanation of existing algorithms.
Electromyography (EMG) is a technique for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles. EMG may be used clinically for the diagnosis of neuromuscular problems and for assessing biomechanical and motor control deficits and other functional disorders. Furthermore, it can be used as a control signal for interfacing with orthotic and/or prosthetic devices or other rehabilitation assists.
This book is organized into 18 chapters, covering the current theoretical and practical approaches of EMG research.
