Building on its popular Biomechanics 101 Introduction, Noraxon turns it attention to the fundamental pillar of biomechanics: electromyography, or EMG. This informative session covers signal origin, acquisition, processing and analysis for a comprehensive and practical understanding of EMG research and assessment.

Building on its popular Biomechanics 101 Introduction, Noraxon turns it attention to the fundamental pillar of biomechanics: electromyography, or EMG. This informative session covers signal origin, acquisition, processing and analysis for a comprehensive and practical understanding of EMG research and assessment.

In addition to basic physiological and biomechanical studies, kinesiological EMG is an established evaluation tool for applied research, physiotherapy/rehabilitation, sports medicine and performance, and interactions of the human body with industrial products and work conditions.

The use of EMG starts with the basic question: “What are the muscles doing?” With the proper study/evaluation design, tools and procedures, important information follows:
– Measurement of muscle performance
– Precise data that supports pre- and post-surgical decision-making
– Finding” and “training” muscles
– Reporting and analysis for injury treatment and return to sport and performance objectives
– Detection and documenting muscle response in ergonomic conditions

Using a series of research and clinical application examples, our presenters discuss the role of EMG within biomechanical studies and cases, summarizing selected scientific concepts, comparing and contrasting protocols and systems used, as well as highlighting appropriate experimental technique.
