261 – TSD250 (BPS-II) VMG transducer in the assessment of isometric absolute muscle effort
Home>Application Notes>261 – TSD250 (BPS-II) VMG transducer in the assessment of isometric absolute muscle effort
Vibromyography (VMG) has distinct benefits over EMG in that the recordings much more accurately reflect absolute muscle effort up to 100% maximum voluntary contraction. Correspondingly, VMG can be used to both evaluate muscle changes over time in a given individual or to compare between two populations the muscle effort required to complete a specific task. The ability to discriminate muscle effort changes depends on the precision and accuracy of the VMG under these two scenarios, that is, the intra-assay accuracy and variability and the inter-assay accuracy and variability. Here, we address the inter-assay variability of VMG recordings in healthy adult men, focusing on isometric contraction of an upper extremity muscle.
The fEMG Electromyography Smart Amplifier is designed specifically for recording facial EMG signals and electrical activity from other small muscle groups. Use with AcqKnowledge™ software to analyze facial expressions and startle paradigms. BIOPAC’s new Smart Amplifiers are designed for great data. Smart Amplifiers improve performance by amplifying the physiological signal close to the subject, which allows a high-level […]
