The technical aspects of detecting surface mechanomyographic (MMG) signals are important, particularly when a laboratory first decides to conduct MMG research, or when detecting MMG signals from muscles in new applications, such as for prosthesis control. Of particular importance is the amount of contact pressure applied over the sensor, since high contact pressures can attenuate the muscle fiber vibrations that generate the MMG signal. Recent studies have also shown that the MMG amplitude and… CONTINUE READING
