Mechanomyography (MMG) provides a measure of muscle mechanical changes during contractions. The purpose of this study was to quantify alterations in MMG signals during fatigue at two muscle lengths. Comparisons with electromyographic (EMG) recordings were made. A group of 13 subjects performed isometric dorsiflexions (50% of maximum for 60 s) at 40° of plantarflexion (long, l l) and 5° of dorsiflexion (short, l s). The mean power frequency of the EMG (f¯ EMG) and MMG (f¯ MMG) signals and the… CONTINUE READING
