Spatial temporal plantar pressure patterns measured with sheet-shaped pressure sensor were investigated to extract features of gait in Parkinson's disease. Both six subjects of Parkinson's disease (PD) and elderly fourteen normal control subjects were asked to execute usual walking on the pressure sensor sheets. Candidate features were step length, step(More)
Surface motor unit action potential (SMUAP) is generated from a motor unit (MU) located at certain depth from the skin surface. The depth is referred to as MU location in the present papers. The MU location affects the amplitude of MUAP, and smoothed rectified electromyogram (SR EMG) is used to estimate for the muscle force. The aim of this study is to(More)
The purpose of this study was to develop an algorithm for surface electromyogram (SEMG) decomposition and classification of surface motor unit (MU) action potential (MUAP) detected during isovelocity elbow flexion. In our proposed algorithm, firstly the measured SEMG was extracted for 3 seconds by every 1.5 seconds. SEMG was decomposed with Independent(More)
