MT8 Radio Telemetry System

 | Post date: 2017/05/22 | 

Electromyography (EMG) is the study of muscle activity by measuring electrical signals associated with the contraction of a muscle. Clinicians and researchers can apply the study of EMG to the fields of neurology, surgical assessments, functional capacity evaluations, biomechanics, ergonomics and overuse injuries and chronic pain evaluations.

In MT8 Radio Telemetry System (or kinesiological EMG), data analysis using Myo-Dat software can be used simultaneously with other compatible software.

Myo-Dat is a data collection package that automatically detects the gain settings on the MT8 receiver and produces fully calibrated analysis of EMG and other transducers. Analysis includes frequency spectra, power spectra, center frequencies, enveloped EMG, quantified EMG, integrated EMG, correlation curves between two signals and EMG protocols. Real time biofeedback of up to eight channels is also included.

The shortcoming of MT8 system is its limited sampling rate of 625Hz while acquiring 8 channels simultaneously. This problem has been solved by using custom-made DAQ systems at our Lab.
