  1. 1. Framework for Wireless Acquisition of Surface EMG and Real-Time Control

    University essay from KTH/Medicinteknik och hälsosystem

    Author : Katrin Ammendrup; [2018]
    Keywords : EMG; Wireless Acquisition; Signal Processing; Real-Time Control;

    Abstract : Muscle driven devices are controlled or powered with muscle activation. These devices open up the possibility of offering patients with limited muscle function to automatically control assistive devices - for instance exoskeletons - with input from their own muscles. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lower Limb Muscle Fatigue Analysis of RaceRunning Athletes with Cerebral Palsy

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Liljar Már Kristjánsson; [2018]
    Keywords : cerebral palsy; racerunning; racerunner; emg; median frequency; root mean square;

    Abstract : Background: Individuals with cerebral palsy (CP) are prone to sedentary life with limited recreational- and physical activity. RaceRunning (RR) is a sport for individuals with disabilities such as motor impairment that allow them to move independently and enjoy physical activity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Investigating the effects of pre-exhausting a synergist prior to a compound exercise. : An electromyographic study

    University essay from Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för ekonomi, teknik och naturvetenskap

    Author : August Ahlebrand; [2017]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Background: Pre-exhausting a synergist prior to a compound exercise has been shown to alter the firing patterns in the muscles during the exercise. Pre-exhausting a muscle is done by exercising a muscle group to fatigue with a single joint exercise prior to an exercise. READ MORE

  4. 4. Robust control of hand prosthesis using electromyography, accelerometers and gyros

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Viktor Löfving; [2017]
    Keywords : Prosthesis control; EMG; surface electrodes; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The goals of this project are to investigate the viability of using the MyoTM armband developed by Thalmic labs as a tool for myoelectric control of a hand prosthesis as well as investigate whether the armbands ability to record its spatial position and orientation can be used to increase the performance of the prosthesis control program. Using the surface electrodes, gyroscopes and accelerometers of the MyoTM armband, a control system for myoelectric control of a hand prosthesis was created and tested on nine different users.

  5. 5. Muscle to motor communication

    University essay from KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Inst.)

    Author : Martin Isacsson; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study is to examine the parameters influencing the signal to noise ratio in surface electromyography as well as the signals usability as a means of control in mechatronical applications. Electromyography refers to the electrical signals detected in the muscles during activation. READ MORE
