Transition from slow to ballistic movement: development of triphasic electromyogram patterns


The purpose of this investigation was to determine how the triphasic electromyogram (EMG) pattern of muscle activation developed from the agonist muscle only pattern as movement time (t mov) decreased. Six adult women produced a series of 30° elbow extension movements in the horizontal plane at speeds ranging from ballistic (< 400-ms t mov) to very slow… (More)
