To study the potentiality for developing an EMG-based model for the human shoulder, mapping of relations between static hand forces and electromyographic (EMG) activity of 13 shoulder muscles, were performed. The procedure was to perform by the hands slowly varying isometric forces up to 20% maximum voluntary force in the three-dimensional space. By combining these data with literature values on muscle physiological cross-sectional area and moment arm data, an EMG-based model was developed for… CONTINUE READING
