The estimation of the force generated by an activated muscle is of high relevance not only in biomechanical studies but also more and more in clinical applications in which the information about the muscle forces supports the physician's decisions on diagnosis and treatment. The surface electromyographic signal (sEMG) reflects the degree of activation of skeletal muscles and certain that the sEMG is highly correlated to the muscle force. However, the largest disadvantage in predicting the… CONTINUE READING
