2012 IEEE/ASME 8th International Conference on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications (MESA)

Mechanical and electrical systems show an increasing integration of mechanics with electronics and information processing. This integration is between the components (hardware) and the information-driven functions (software), resulting in integrated systems called mechatronic systems. The development of mechatronic systems involves finding an optimal balance between the basic mechanical structure, sensor and actuators, automatic digital information processing and control in which embedded systems play a key role. The goal of the 8th IEEE/ASME MESA'12, is to bring together experts from the fields of mechatronic and embedded systems, disseminate the recent advances made in the area, discuss future research directions, and exchange application experience.

A Comparison of Day-Long Recording Stability and Muscle Force Prediction between BSN-Based Mechanomyography and Electromyography

Constantinos Gavriel; A. Aldo Faisal 2014 11th International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks, 2014

Day-long continuous monitoring requires stable sensors that can minimise the effects of drift and maintain high accuracy and precision over time. We have recently shown that our inertial motion tracking system can capture stable kinematic data, calibrated against ground-truth over a long period of time. However, for many clinical and daily life activities, it is also essential to monitor the ...

This study uses the signal averaging and filtering method for ECG signal de- noising and R-wave detection with moving minimum slot and maximum point selecting method. Signal averaging and filtering method reduces random noise (major component of EMG noise) in ECG signal and also gives the comparatively good result for baseline wander noise cancellation.

A low-noise preamplifier for nerve cuff electrodes

M. Sahin IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering, 2005

A single-stage, low-noise preamplifier is designed using the concept of noise matching for recordings of neural signal with cuff electrodes. The signal-to- noise ratio is approximately 1.6 times higher than that of a low-noise integrated amplifier (AMP-01) for a cuff impedance of 1.5 kΩ. The bandwidth is 230 Hz-8.25 kHz (Rs=2 kΩ), and the common-mode-rejection-ratio is 91.2 dB at 1 ...

The purpose of this study was to estimate the force of dynamically contracting muscles using direct measurements of electromyographic signals in cat plantaris muscles. An adaptive filtering least-mean-squares algorithm was used for the force estimation. The results of this study indicate that adequate estimations of dynamic muscular force are possible without using instantaneous muscle properties, such as force-length and force-velocity ...

  • Surface EMG Biofeedback

    This chapter focuses on the most common form of feedback in physical rehabilitation: surface electromyograph (sEMG) biofeedback. It provides an overview of technical considerations and guidelines for the use of sEMG biofeedback and reviews some of its most common clinical applications. The principle of sEMG biofeedback is to provide the subject with enhanced information about muscle activity. The most common goals are muscle relaxation, reduction of excessive and/or inappropriate muscle activation, or the learning or re learning of muscle control. The chapter considers some of the technical considerations when applying and interpreting sEMG biofeedback. It summarizes the use of sEMG biofeedback for various clinical conditions. Recent technological advances and discoveries in the field of motor control and learning prompted new solutions for sEMG biofeedback applications, possibly leading to more effective training.

  • EMG in Exercise Physiology and Sports

    Surface electromyography (sEMG) is useful in studying many issues of motor control. This chapter analyzes the issues of coactivation, onset muscle timing, and characterization of exercise under the viewpoint of muscle coordination. Surface EMG has been widely used to study muscle coordination during locomotion such as walking, running, and cycling. The pattern of muscle activation during locomotion can be analyzed in terms of activity level and/or activation timing. A motor unit (MU) consists of a motoneuron in the spinal cord and the muscle fibers it innervates. The electrical activity in a muscle is determined by the number of motor units recruited and their mean discharge frequency of excitation, that is, the same factors that determine muscle force. The chapter investigates the physiological effects of static stretching upon delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) in conjunction with the spinal alpha motoneuron pool excitability.

  • Surface Electromyography for MAN-Machine Interfacing in Rehabilitation Technologies

    This chapter describes the use of surface electromyography (EMG) for establishing intuitive man-machine interfaces for rehabilitation settings and technologies. The EMG is primarily used as source of neural information, to provide control signals for external devices. The chapter also describes the general concepts underlying the extraction of control signals from surface EMG recordings. It presents examples of neurorehabilitation technologies based on surface EMG. The surface EMG signal can be used to trigger or continuously control external assistive devices including powered orthoses and prostheses. The chapter outlines representative examples of neurotechnologies that make use of EMG signals for device control purposes. It provides examples in the three main areas of neurorehabilitation: replacement, restoration, and neuromodulation. EMG signals were recorded from seven muscles including: vastus medialis, vastus lateralis, rectus femoris, lateral hamstrings, medial hamstrings, gastrocnemius medialis, and gastrocnemius lateralis.

  • Muscle Force and Myoelectric Manifestations of Muscle Fatigue in Voluntary and Electrically Elicited Contractions

    This chapter deals with the association between surface electromyography (sEMG) and force/fatigue and outlines this association, and the tools to study it. It considers myoelectric manifestations of muscle fatigue as investigation tools. The association between relative decrease of conduction velocity and relative decrease of spectral variables is based on the relations between conduction velocity and power spectrum and between fiber type and fiber size. Muscles are made of fibers which classified into three main types: slow oxidative fibers, fast oxidative glycolitic fibers, and fast glycolitic fibers. Analysis of variance (ANOVA), coefficient of variation (CoV), standard error of the mean (SEM), and intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) are repeatability of sEMG measurements and fatigue indicators tools. The agreement between sEMG-based estimation of fatigue and perceived exertion, at least in isometric fatiguing contractions, is of considerable interest in occupational medicine.

  • Surface EMG in Ergonomics and Occupational Medicine

    Prevention of musculoskeletal disorders is one of the main goals in ergonomics. The development of methods to quantify muscle force, fatigue, and muscle involvement in a work task is important for this purpose surface electromyography (sEMG) and kinematic measurements are the main tools for the quantitative evaluation of risks related to work activity. The literature regarding the potential of sEMG techniques in ergonomic studies is extensive and concerns many applications, some of which are listed: work at display terminals and office workstations, production line workstations, work with surgical workstations and workspace optimization. Surface EMG has a remarkable potential role in the prevention, monitoring, documentation, and possibly treatment of work related disorders. Insufficient research funding and standardization efforts are still limiting its applications. Much greater research efforts are required to transform its potential into a practical technique with clinical and legal relevance and economic impact on work health.
