Background: The surface electromyography (EMG) is a technique to capture and measure electrical activity and muscle action potential. It is applied to specify the production of force and to analyze muscle fatigue. The Root Mean Square (RMS) value has been used to quantify the electric signal because it reflects the physiological activity in the motor unit during contraction. Purpose: To evaluate a possible linear relationship between the RMS value of the EMG signal and the contraction force of… CONTINUE READING
