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.

Independence of myoelectric control signals examined using a surface EMG model

Biomedical Engineering, IEEE Transactions on, 2003

The detection volume of the surface electromyographic (EMG) signal was explored using a finite-element model, to examine the feasibility of obtaining independent myoelectric control signals from regions of reinnervated muscle. The selectivity of the surface EMG signal was observed to decrease with increasing subcutaneous fat thickness.

An inability to adapt myoelectric interfaces to a novel user's unique style of hand motion, or even to adapt to the motion style of an opposite limb upon which the interface is trained, are important factors inhibiting the practical application of myoelectric interfaces. This is mainly attributed to the individual differences in the exhibited electromyogram (EMG) signals generated by the ...

G. N Pradhan; N. D Engineer; M. N. Nadin; B. Prabhakaran 2007 IEEE Dallas Engineering in Medicine and Biology Workshop, 2007

Cognitive, motor and perceptual processes diminish with age and thus limit adaptive capabilities of older individuals. Our hypothesis is that with aging there is decreased expression of these proactive adaptive capabilities. These experiments were designed to test this hypothesis by implementing an integrated approach to quantifying physiological characteristics in older individuals. We are working towards building an integrated wireless motion ...

  • 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.

  • EMG of Electrically Stimulated Muscles

    This chapter addresses stimulation techniques, the issue of the stimulation electrode positioning, motor unit (MU) activation order, and spinal involvement in electrically elicited contractions. Two stimulation techniques are commonly used: bipolar, and monopolar stimulation. The differences between these two methods concern the geometry and relative position of the stimulation electrodes. Surface electromyography (sEMG) signals can be detected during selective electrical stimulation of a nerve branch or of a motor point of a muscle. The resultant sEMG signal is a compound motor action potential (CMAP), also termed as M-wave. Since the M-wave represents the sum of the potentials of the concurrently activated MUs, its change is generally assumed to reflect changes either in the number or in the sarcolemmal properties of activated MUs. Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) combined with sEMG isolates the contributions of peripheral fatigue because it gives the experimenter control of MU firing frequency and recruitment.

  • 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.

  • Surface EMG Applications in Neurophysiology

    This chapter focuses on the basics of surface electromyography (sEMG) and related methods for the study of human motor control and its adaptations. Recordings of voluntary sEMG provide partial information on the mechanisms involved in muscle activity. However, the combination of sEMG and methods based on electrically and magnetically evoked potentials allows stepping further in a comprehensive approach of movement strategies during tasks, and the influence of various factors such as etiology of cramps, fatigue, training, aging on such strategies. The recorded sEMG signal represents the electrical activity of numerous motor units. The chapter describes the basic methodology to record H-reflex and the relevant factors to consider when assessing its modulations. sEMG and evoked potentials provide relevant information on age-related changes within the muscle and the nervous system, as well as on the neural adjustments required to perform various motor tasks.

  • Applications in Movement and Gait Analysis

    Motion analysis is based on measuring trajectories, rotations of joints, torque values, temporal events, and muscle activities. Force plates embedded in the floors of motion analysis laboratories measure force transfer between foot and ground during gait. Kinematics, kinetics, and surface electromyography (sEMG) are used to identify the causes of motion impairment and the resulting compensatory movements, thus enhancing clinical assessment and supporting decisions such as choice of surgery, orthoses, and rehabilitation protocols. Surface EMG can provide information on the origin of motion produced by muscle activation. EMG during task execution enables muscle activities to be assessed rather than inferred from a combination of observation of movements and clinical evaluation performed under static conditions. To ensure data reliability in applications of motion analysis, raw sEMG data on a fixed y-axis scale must be checked before five criteria: filtering, envelope computation, data normalization, clinical report creation, and statistical analysis for research purposes.
