Development of a Wireless, Commercial Electromyography System for Use in Athletics and Physical Therapy
MetadataShow full item record
Electromyography is a muscle activity recording technique that is not often used in a clinical setting due to difficulties in reproducibility. In this paper I aim to create a wireless, wearable system for electromyography. This system is built into a pair of compression shorts, and sends both electromyography and positional data from inertial measurement units to users’ mobile devices. This system is primarily useful in physical therapy and athletic fields, as quantitative information on user gait can improve in the healing and training processes.
