BSL EMG lesson II explores the role of skeletal muscle in performing mechanical tasks. The lesson uses a hand dynamometer to demonstrate the use of skeletal muscle when recording the maximum grip strength for both hands and also allows students to record EMG while inducing muscle fatigue. The system will automatically calibrate the hand dynamometer and scale the force values to kilograms for the electromyogram. Students will see the level of motor unit recruitment associated with the precise amount of applied force.
BSL Lessons are designed to allow at least four students to record and save data in a normal lab period (60-90 minutes). Typically, labs work most efficiently with three or more students working together at each BSL station.
