dc.description.abstractThis paper presents a brief description of surface electromyography (sEMG), what it can be used for, as well as some of the problems associated with visual displays of sEMG data. Sonifications of sEMG data have shown potential for certain applications in data monitoring and movement training, however there are still challenges related to the design of these sonifications that need to be addressed. Our previous research has shown that different sonification designs resulted in better listener performance for different sEMG evaluation tasks (e.g. identifying muscle activation time vs. muscle exertion level). Based on this finding, we speculated that sonifications may benefit from being designed to be task-specific, and that integrating a task analysis into the sonification design process may help sonification designers identify intuitive and meaningful sonification designs. This paper presents a brief introduction to what a task analysis is, provides an example of how a task analysis can be used to inform sonification design, and outlines future research into a task-analysis-based approach to sonification design.
