EMG data BIOPAC AcqKnowledge

EMG Solutions for Large and Small Muscle Data

AcqKnowledge® displays, records and analyzes EMG data from human and animal subjects from large and small muscle groups, including facial EMG for analyzing facial expressions and startle paradigms. The EMG signal can be recorded using surface EMG (sEMG), needle EMG, fine wire EMG, active electrodes, telemetry, and data logging techniques. Filtering options include both real-time and post acquisition filtering for optimal conditioning of the data. Automated analysis tools identify the root mean square, average rectified and integrated EMG signal to provide an estimation of force levels.
