Salat may be useful in warm up or in rehabilitation programs. This study explores the muscle potential and force during Salat's movement and position that can be one of the daily exercise and training for our muscle in course of biomechanical response of human body. From this study, it is possible to recognize the muscles that are involved and contract during Salat. In case of signal acquisition, subjects selection and data collection steps are accomplished by hardware setup. We have analyzed… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Investigation of lower limb’s muscles activity during performance of salat between two age groups

From the results, the most active muscle during the performance of salat is BF while the less active muscle is GAS for both age groups, but there is significant difference among the muscles investigated.

Estimation of work done in lower limb using EMG

Estimation of human lower limb motions is elementary to enable power-assist robotic systems used for lower limb disabled persons. These robotic systems are based on lower limb muscles

Frequency based EMG power spectrum analysis of Salat associated muscle contraction

The results demonstrate that mean parameter of selected FB-MNF has a better linear relationship with muscle contraction compared to the others for different subjects and has a significant difference between feature values among the MNF signal data of EMG power spectrum for different Subjects.

A mathematical approach to determine the work-done from EMG analysis

From the results, it is observed that EMG voltage maintain almost parabolic relationship with work done, and the relationship as exact linear and parabolic, the errors from the measured values are also calculated.

Investigation of the EMG activity of erector spinae and trapezius muscles during Islamic prayer (Salat).

The results indicate that the trapezius muscle remains relaxed during the standing and sitting positions while the erector spinae muscle remains contracted during these two positions, which will aid the accurate understanding of how the back muscles respond in specific postures during Salat.

Time and frequency domain features of EMG signal during Islamic prayer (Salat)

Two upper and lower back muscles named as erector spinae and trapezius muscles are investigated during the body movements involved in Islamic prayer (Salat) and show a balance in terms of contraction and relaxation during bowing and prostration position of Salat.

The study of EMG signals during sitting postures in Muslim prayer

The statistical results showed that Sitting of Tawarruk has better EMG level on lower limb muscles than Sitting of Iftirasy while Paired-Samples T Test shows that there are no significant differences between both Sittings at the Right Gastrocnemius, Right Tibialis Anterior and Left Tibiali Anterior muscles during the postures.

EMG Activity of Leg Muscles with Knee Pain during Islamic Prayer (Salat)

Overall all four muscles are affected due to the knee pain and thus show abnormal activity in standing and knee flexion and it has been found that, hamstring muscles were more affected than thigh muscles while performing kneeflexion.

Effect of Salat ( Prayer ) Movements versus Specific Stretching Exercises on Electromyographic Activity of Erector Spinae Muscle

Background: Salat is the prayer practiced by most of Muslims for five times a day and night. It involves several physical motions, namely standing, bowing and prostration. Benefits of salat from the



Electromyographic activity of the lower limb muscles during salat and specific exercises

S alat may be useful in warm up or in rehabilitation programs and the findings indicate that there were contractions of the muscles during the salat and exercises with difference EMG levels.

Investigation of electromyographic activity during Salat and stretching exercise

The results indicate similar muscle contractions activities during salat and stretching exercise, and even though the root mean square values during stretching exercise is higher, a t-test shows there is statistically no significant difference between these two movements.

Mean and Median Frequency of EMG Signal to Determine Muscle Force based on Time- dependent Power Spectrum

The results showed that mean and median features of the selected TD-MNF series have a better linear relationship with muscle force (load level) compared to the traditional methods and have a significant difference between feature values for different loading conditions.

EMG output during the “takbeeratul-ihram (TI)”, one of the postures in Salat and stretching exercise, is presented and it is shown that higher EMG signals in pectoralis major and biceps during performing the stretching posture is higher than for TI posture.

Activity of Upper Body Muscles during Bowing and Prostration Tasks in Healthy Subjects

The effects of bowing and prostration on the biomechanical response of the human muscles are indicated, which show an agonist-antagonist response which is good for exercise and strengthening programmers.

Evaluation of a new physical exercise taken from salat (prayer) as a short-duration and frequent physical activity in the rehabilitation of geriatric and disabled patients.

During the offering of salat, most of the joints and muscles of the body were involved in physical activities with little effort, which probably play a vital role in cerebral blood flow and postural reflexes.
