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.

  • Muscle Coordination, Motor Synergies, and Primitives from Surface EMG

    To investigate neural control strategies, muscle activity must be measured during motor behavior. Recent advances in the investigation of the neural control of movement have led to a re-examination of the mechanisms of sensorimotor integration in the central nervous system (CNS) and in the spinal circuitry in particular. This chapter considers different approaches used to uncover the modular organization of the motor output in human behaviors such as responding to postural perturbations, reaching with the arm, and locomotion, as well as its plasticity and flexibility in movement disorders. It also investigates the strategies that the CNS employs to coordinate the activation of many muscles start from electromyographic (EMG) signals recorded simultaneously from many muscles. Different muscle synergies models are used to decompose the EMG envelopes using appropriate factorization algorithms. The chapter further considers the spatiotemporal organization of the activity patterns of leg and trunk muscles during locomotion.

  • Biophysics of the Generation of EMG Signals

    This chapter describes the basic concepts of generation and detection of EMG signals. Specific emphasis is devoted to the generation of muscle fiber action potentials at the fiber end plates, their propagation along the sarcolemma, and their extinction at the tendons. The chapter addresses the topics of crosstalk between nearby muscles and selectivity of the recording systems. It discusses the relationships between muscle force and the surface EMG. The EMG signal is generated by the electrical activity of the muscle fibers active during a contraction. The signal sources are the depolarizing and repolarizing zones of the muscle fibers. EMG signal features depend on a number of anatomical, physical, and detection system parameters. Considering all the factors related to the volume conductor and the signal sources that influence the characteristics of the EMG signal, a reliable relation between EMG amplitude and force needs a subject specific and condition specific calibration.

  • Surface EMG Decomposition

    This chapter provides an overview of surface EMG decomposition techniques, along with their basic assumptions, properties, and limitations. Surface electrodes measure the electrical activity of several nearby muscle fibers that are active during a muscle contraction. The electrical activity of each fiber can be described by a single fiber action potential (SFAP) that propagates from the neuromuscular junction towards the tendons. There is large diversity of decomposition techniques that can roughly be categorized either as template matching or latent component analysis (blind source separation) approaches. Decomposition of surface EMG is a powerful tool enabling noninvasive insight not only into muscle control strategies, but also into peripheral muscle properties. It provides unambiguous information on physiological parameters of individual motor units that can easily be interpreted. The identification of motor units (MUs) discharge patterns from surface EMG signals, acquired during dynamic muscle contractions, needs to be addressed.

  • Detection and Conditioning of Surface EMG Signals

    This chapter presents the detection and conditioning of surface electromyographic (EMG) signals. More advanced techniques are now widely used in research laboratories and are being adopted in clinical settings. Such techniques are based on multichannel detection by means of one dimensional (1-D) or two dimensional (2-D) electrode arrays. The chapter describes the electrode-skin interface and the front-end amplifier stage. The impedance between two electrodes is the sum of two electrode-skin impedances plus the interposed tissue impedance. Conventional electrodes, either wet or dry, behave like transducers converting ionic current (in tissue and gel) into flow of electrons in the metal. These electrical sensors require a careful skin preparation to reduce the impedance and noise associated to this interface. The biomedical sector offers small-sized, high-cost application-specific integrated circuits (ASIC) devices for biopotential measurements. Applications are expected to range from physiopathological investigations, to rehabilitation games, biofeedback applications, and sport training.

  • 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.

  • EMG Modeling and Simulation

    This chapter outlines the main components that should be considered in the development of physiologically based models of surface electromyographic (sEMG). One of the challenges in increasing the accuracy of current sEMG models is the correct identification of the model parameters. Parameter identification is particularly difficult for systems such as this in which it is not possible to accurately measure all of the physiological, anatomical, and physical properties of the system. The chapter explores the simulation of intramuscular EMG, in particular for clinical applications. One of the primary purposes of a modeling approach is to identify the mechanisms responsible for experimental observations. A successful EMG model can thereby help the researcher to relate the recorded electrical signal to the underlying processes associated with muscle contraction. Model validation remains one of the most challenging areas in EMG modeling.

  • Applications in Musculoskeletal Physical Therapy

    Surface electromyography (sEMG) is typically applied in musculoskeletal physical therapy for the assessment of disturbed motor control and for monitoring change with rehabilitation. This chapter explores fundamental methods of EMG assessment as a means of evaluating neuromuscular impairment in patients with musculoskeletal disorders with a focus on two of the most common musculoskeletal complaints, namely, low back pain and neck pain. Distinct modifications of the sEMG signal can be identified during sustained voluntary or electrically elicited muscle contractions, and the analysis of myoelectric manifestations of muscle fatigue can provide important information about physiological changes evolving in the muscle. The amplitude of the surface EMG can be estimated by a scheme of demodulation, smoothing, and relinearization. An approach to monitoring the amplitude of activity of muscles with sEMG is to measure tuning curves. The chapter further reviews some of the most frequently applied analyses in musculoskeletal physical therapy research.
