In this paper, we propose techniques of surface electromyographic (EMG) signal detection and processing for the assessment of muscle fiber conduction velocity (CV) during dynamic contractions involving fast movements. The main objectives of the study are: 1) to present multielectrode EMG detection systems specifically designed for dynamic conditions (in(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the study was the non-invasive investigation of the innervation zone (IZ) location of the gracilis muscle of both thighs by means of surface electromyography (EMG). MATERIALS AND METHODS Multichannel EMG signals were detected by means of a flexible array of 16 equally spaced silver bar electrodes. Tests were performed on both(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the study was to demonstrate that anatomical features of individual motor units of the puborectalis muscle can be detected with non-invasive electromyography (EMG) and to evaluate differences in electrophysiological properties of the puborectalis muscles in a small group of healthy and pathologic subjects. METHODS Multichannel EMG(More)
Functional recovery of transplanted hand can be evaluated clinically but until now there has been no direct assessment of muscle control. In October 2000 we transplanted the right hand of a brain-dead man aged 43 onto a man aged 35 who had lost his right dominant hand 22 years before. Starting from day 205 after the transplant, multi-channel surface(More)
