Follow Good Practices and Use Delsys Technology to Achieve Maximal EMG Quality

Do you know where your surface EMG signal comes from? In this seminar, you will learn how to avoid the pitfalls of EMG detection and attain high quality EMG recordings. The seminar describes the origin of noise and unwanted signal sources, the advanced features of Delsys technology that minimize disturbances, and the proper use and procedures that should be followed to ensure high quality EMG recordings.

Practicum on the Use of Surface EMG Signals in Movement Sciences (v1.5)

Surface Electromyography (sEMG) has undergone revitalization unparalleled since 1849, when Du Bois-Reymond blistered the skin on his hand and immersed it in a jar containing salt water to make an effective electrical contact with a galvanometer.
