New technology to assess muscle effort

Post by icegirlclaire » Tue Dec 21, 2010 8:56 pm

The ability to non-invasively assess voluntary muscle effort has wide application in physiologic studies, sports and rehabilitation medicine, as well as movement science. Traditionally, surface electromyography (sEMG) has been used for such assessment. But sEMG has several significant limitations arising from the fact that an estimate of muscle mechanical effort is being obtained from an electrical potential measurement made at the skin surface.

And VMG, which is a form of mechanomyography, overcome the limitations associated with using sEMG recordings to evaluate muscle effort.

This is not spam. I just think this is useful for people who are doing research on muscle or coach who are examining their athletics.

You've got something to sell+you promote it on the forum= :spam1:

It's not like you were a regular here who just happened to find an interesting site. You logged onto the forum for the express purpose of promoting a product in which you obviously have a vested interest (you used first-person pronouns in reference to it--"Check out our white paper..."). That all adds up to :spam2:
