Contracting muscle generates sounds which can be recorded easily by means of a microphone. To determine if a phonomyogram (PMG) can be used to monitor muscle force, a comparison was made between simultaneous recordings of PMG and monopolar electromyogram (EMG) from the isometrically contracting biceps brachii muscle and the external flexion force. Locations of the monopolar electrode and microphone were identified in relation to the motor point. Whatever the recording site, PMG amplitude was… CONTINUE READING
