Model Based Sensitivity Analysis of EMG–Force Relation with Respect to Motor Unit Properties: Applications to Muscle Paresis in Stroke

Abstract

The sensitivity of the electromyogram (EMG)–force relation to changes in motoneuron and muscle properties was explored using a simulation approach, and by applying existing motoneuron pool, muscle force, and surface EMG models. The simulation results indicate that several factors contribute potently to known changes in the EMG–force relation in paretic… (More)
