A complete overview of electromyography with contributions from pacesetters in the field
In recent years, insights from the field of engineering have illuminated the vast potential of electromyography (EMG) in biomedical technology. Featuring contributions from key innovators working in the field today, Electromyography reveals the broad applications of EMG data in areas as diverse as neurology, ergonomics, exercise physiology, rehabilitation, movement analysis, biofeedback, and myoelectric control of prosthesis.
Bridging the gap between engineering and physiology, this pioneering volume explains the essential concepts needed to detect, understand, process, and interpret EMG signals using non-invasive electrodes. Electromyography shows how engineering tools such as models and signal processing methods can greatly augment the insight provided by surface EMG signals.
Topics covered include:
Basic physiology and biophysics of EMG generationNeedle and surface electrode detection techniquesSignal conditioning and processing issuesSingle- and multi-channel techniques for information extractionDevelopment and application of physical modelsAdvanced signal processing techniques With its fresh engineering perspective,
Electromyography offers physiologists, medical professionals, and students in biomedical engineering a new window into the far-reaching possibilities of this dynamic technology.
