VMG – Assess absolute isometric muscle effort

AcqKnowledge Vibromyography data VMG

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.

Perfrom muscle effort assessments with Vibromyography (VMG) systems from BIOPAC.

VMG transducers record vibration data received from microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors and proprietary software.

– VMG amplitude increases monotonically with muscle effort – Only one scaling factor required for all subjects – Relationship is between ABSOLUTE effort and VMG

BioNomadix Wireless 2 Ch Goniometry Amplifier

BioNomadix 2CH Wireless Goniometry Amplifier

The BioNomadix two channel wireless goniometry amplifier is a dual output device that provide simultaneous measurements around two orthogonal rotational axes (e.g., wrist flexion/extension and radial/ulnar deviations). These units interface with the MP160 (or older MP150) data acquisition and analysis platform and AcqKnowledge software, allowing advanced analysis for multiple applications and supporting acquisition of a broad range of signals and measurements. BN-GONIO can support any […]
