OBJECTIVE The reliability of surface electromyography (SEMG) derived parameters is of high importance, but there is distinct lack of studies concerning the reliability during dynamic contractions. Particularly, the similarity index reliability has not been investigated during functional task yet. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the reliability of trunk muscle activities measured by means of surface electromyography during lifting tasks over repeated trials within a day.
