  • Development of a Testbed for Robotic Neuromuscular Controllers

    Current control approaches to robotic legged locomotion rely on centralized planning and tracking or motion pattern matching. Central control is not available to robotic assistive devices that integrate with humans, and matching predefined patterns severely limits user dexterity. By contrast, biological systems show substantial legged dexterity even when their central nervous system is severed from their spinal cord, indicating that neuromuscular feedback controls can be harnessed to encode stability, adaptability, and maneuverability into legged systems. Here we present the initial steps to develop a robotic gait testbed that can implement and verify neuromuscular controls for robotic assistive devices. The initial stage consists of an antagonistically actuated two segment leg with a floating compliant joint. We detail its electromechanical design and low level, velocity-based torque control. Additionally, we present experiments that test the leg's performance during human-like high fidelity motions. The results show that the robot can track fast motions corresponding to 87% of the maximum performance limit of human muscle. The experiments also reveal limitations of our current implementation and we discuss solutions to overcoming them.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Techniques for Information Extraction from the Surface EMG Signalhigh-Density Surface EMG

    This chapter deals with the information that can be extracted from images obtained when electrode grids are applied to the skin above muscles with different architectures. The interpretation of these images, and therefore the information obtainable, depends on the muscle architecture and fiber arrangement. The action potentials propagating along muscle fibers generate electric fields in the surrounding conductive medium. The chapter deals with the surface EMG instantaneous images, with the feature images, and with the spatiotemporal images. It provides examples on the information that may be obtained from high-density surface EMG (HD-EMGs) detected from muscles with pinnate architecture. Two main fields of research application of HDsEMG may be identified such as surface EMG imaging and surface EMG decomposition. From the clinical point of view, the expected developments concern more extensive applications in biofeedback and monitoring of the neuromuscular system for prevention purposes and automatic detection of the innervation zone.

    This chapter contains sections titled: Introduction Definitions and Sites of Neuromuscular Fatigue Assessment of Muscle Fatigue How Fatigue Is Reflected in Surface EMG Variables Myoelectric Manifestations of Muscle Fatigue in Isometric Voluntary Contractions Fiber Typing and Myoelectric Manifestations of Muscle Fatigue Factors Affecting Surface EMG Variables Repeatability of Estimates of EMG Variables and Fatigue Indexes Conclusions References

  • 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.

  • Graz-Brain-Computer Interface: State of Research

    A brain-computer interface (BCI) transforms signals originating from the human brain into commands that can control devices or applications. In this way, a BCI provides a new nonmuscular communication channel and control technology for those with severe neuromuscular disorders. The immediate goal is to provide these users, who may be completely paralyzed, or "locked in," with basic communication capabilities so they can express their wishes to caregivers or even operate word processing programs or neuroprostheses. The Graz-BCI system uses electroencephalographic (EEG) signals associated with motor imagery, such as oscillations of β or µ rhythms or visual and somatosensory steady-state evoked potentials (SSVEP, SSSEP) as input signal. Special effort is directed to the type of motor imagery (kinesthetic or visual-motor imagery), the use of complex band power features, the selection of important features, and the use of phase-coupling and adaptive autoregressive parameter estimation to improve single-trial classification. A new approach is also the use of steady-state somatosensory evoked potentials to establish a communication with the help of tactile stimuli. In addition, different Graz-BCI applications are reported: control of neuroprostheses, control of a spelling system, and first steps toward an asynchronous (uncued) BCI for navigation in a virtual environment.
