Electromyographic and mechanomyographic estimation of motor unit activation strategy in voluntary force production. In order to determine whether electromyogram (EMG) and mechanomyogram (MMG) are suitable for the noninvasive estimation of the motor unit (MU) activation strategy, the EMG/force and MMG/force relationships were examined simultaneously during isometric ramp contractions in biceps brachii muscle. The highest mean power frequency (MPF) of the EMG, which reflects the full MU… CONTINUE READING
