Surface mechanomyogram amplitude is not attenuated by intramuscular pressure

  author={Karen S\ogaard and Claudio Orizio and Gisela Sj\ogaard},
  journal={European Journal of Applied Physiology},
The electromyogram (EMG) and intramuscular pressure (IMP) increase linearly with force during voluntary static contractions, while the surface mechanomyogram (MMG) increases linearly only up to approximately 70% of the maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) and then levels off. The aim of this study was to investigate the possible influence of IMP on the non-linear MMG increase with force and hence on the signal generation process. Seven subjects performed static contractions of the elbow flexors… CONTINUE READING
