Reduction in number of motor units (nMU) and fast fibre ratio (FFR) is associated with disease or atrophy when this is rapid. There is a need to study the effect of nMU and FFR to analyse the association with ageing and disease. This study has developed a mathematical model to investigate the relationship between nMU and FFR on surface electromyogram (sEMG)(More)
Reduction in the median frequency and the amplitude of surface electromyogram (sEMG) has been observed among older subjects compared with the younger cohort. These changes in sEMG have been associated with a reduction in the number of muscle fibers and a drop in the ratio of type II muscle fibers. However, the details of this association are not known.
