In this work, an attempt has been made to differentiate sEMG signals under muscle fatigue and non-fatigue conditions using multiscale features. Signals are recorded from biceps brachii muscle of 50 normal adults during repetitive dynamic contractions. After preprocessing, the signal is divided into six segments, out of which first and last segments are(More)
Analysis of neuromuscular fatigue finds various applications ranging from clinical studies to biomechanics. Surface electromyography (sEMG) signals are widely used for these studies due to its non-invasiveness. During cyclic dynamic contractions, these signals are nonstationary and cyclostationary. In recent years, several nonstationary methods have been(More)
Fatigue is a phenomena associated with reduction of maximum force in muscles while performing functional activities. Assessment of fatigue is important in the field of clinical conditions, rehabilitation and sports. In this work, an attempt has been made to discriminate fatigue and non-fatigue conditions using cyclostationary analysis. The surface(More)
In this work an attempt has been made to analyze the surface Electromyography signals recorded during dynamic contractions using quadratic time frequency distribution. Surface EMG signals are recorded from biceps brachii muscle in 50 healthy volunteers. These signals are subjected to Zhao-Atlas-Marks based Quadratic Time-Frequency Distribution (QTFD).(More)
Muscle fatigue is a neuromuscular condition where muscles fail to generate the required force. It occurs in normal as well as abnormal subjects. The analysis of muscle fatigue plays a significant role in the field of clinical studies, myo-electric control, ergonomics and sports biomechanics. In this work, an attempt has been made to differentiate the sEMG(More)
Muscle fatigue is a neuromuscular condition where muscle performance decreases due to sustained or intense contraction. It is experienced by both normal and abnormal subjects. In this work, an attempt has been made to analyze the progression of muscle fatigue in biceps brachii muscles using surface electromyography (sEMG) signals. The sEMG signals are(More)
In this work, an attempt has been made to analyze the cyclostationarity of surface electromyography (sEMG) signals recorded during dynamic contraction of biceps brachii muscle. Twenty five healthy adult volunteers have participated in this study. The recorded signals are preprocessed and segmented into three zones, namely, non-fatigue zone, first muscle(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Surface electromyography (sEMG) based muscle fatigue research is widely preferred in sports science and occupational/rehabilitation studies due to its noninvasiveness. However, these signals are complex, multicomponent and highly nonstationary with large inter-subject variations, particularly during dynamic contractions. Hence,(More)
