This paper presents a hybrid adaptive algorithm for the compression of surface electromyographic (S-EMG) signals recorded during isometric and/or isotonic contractions. This technique is useful for minimizing data storage and transmission requirements for applications where multiple channels with high bandwidth data are digitized, such as telemedicine applications. The compression algorithm proposed in this work uses a discrete wavelet transform for spectral decomposition and an intelligent… CONTINUE READING
