Evaluations of the ring shaped EMG measurement system

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

This paper describes two evaluations of our previously proposed ring shaped EMG measurement system. The first evaluation, based on the collection of EMG by the system, shows that no statistically significant difference is seen between 3 EMG electrode configurations: the electrode is pressed with a finger, the electrode is fixed by tape, and a conventional plate electrode. The second evaluation suggests that our system has higher usability than the conventional electrodes. These results show that the ring shaped EMG measurement system is effective for measuring EMG, especially as part of the user interface for EMG-based applications.
