Measuring human reflex responses from electromyogram (EMG) traces in an accurate, repeatable and reliable way with a high degree of specificity has traditionally been a difficult task. This paper describes a new method that can be used to quantify reflex responses from both surface and intra-muscular EMG. This technique extends the classical cumulative sum (CUSUM) calculations by defining precise points for the calculation of latencies, durations and strengths to facilitate automatic reflex… CONTINUE READING
