We propose a model for surface electromyography (EMG) signal generation with cylindrical description of the volume conductor. The model is more general and complete with respect to previous approaches. The volume conductor is described as a multilayered cylinder in which the source can be located either along the longitudinal or the angular direction, in(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS This work focuses on recording, processing and interpretation of multichannel surface EMG detected from the external anal sphincter muscle. The aim is to describe the information that can be extracted from signals recorded with such a technique. METHODS The recording of many signals from different locations on a muscle allows the(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this work was to investigate the distribution of the innervation zones of the motor units that make up the external anal sphincter (EAS) in healthy males and females. METHODS A cylindrical probe carrying a circumferential array of 16 electrodes was used to detect the generation, propagation and extinction of individual motor(More)
Spatial filters are used for increasing selectivity in surface EMG signal detection. The study investigated the importance of the description of the volume conductor to the inference of conclusions on comparing filter selectivity from simulation analyses. A cylindrical multi-layer description of the volume conductor was used for the simulation analysis.(More)
Surface electromyographic (EMG) signal modelling is important for signal interpretation, testing of processing algorithms, detection system design and didactic purposes. Various surface EMG signal models have been proposed in the literature. This study focuses on the proposal of a method for modelling surface EMG signals, using either analytical or(More)
