Measurements

EMG

Kinesiology is the study of human and nonhuman animal-body movements, performance, and function by applying the sciences of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology, and neuroscience. When studying kinesiology,  surface electromyography  (sEMG or Surface EMG) is the measurement of choice.  The RS-EMGx enables 4-8 channels of EMG recordings, or a combination of EMG and ECG recordings.

Measurements

Analysis

  • Time Domain Analysis
    • Recified EMG Data
    • RMS ( Root Mean Square)
    • Envelope EMG Data
    • Filtering
    • Mean Frequency
    • Area Under The Curve

ECG

In Addition to EMG, ECG signals can also be measured with the IX-BIOx recorder.  Measuring 2 channels of ECG, Lead I and Lead II allows LabScribe software to calculate Lead III, aVR, aVF and aVL .
