Researchers from Islamic Azad University, Science and Research branch, have designed and made an EMG Device without using conventional electrodes.

According to an ISCA report, electromyography is an electrodiagnostic medicine technique for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles. It works in two ways: surface electrode placement for recording electromyography signals, or needle electrodes inserted into the muscle can depict the electric signals accurately.

Researchers from Science and Research IAU, Engineering Research Center in Medicine and Biology, created a wireless EMG system, which not only has no limitations similar to its foreign samples, but also it is able to record and send information simultaneously, no need to rub the skin, use a gel or even installing the electrode.

Motion artifact that causes irregularities in the data, is one of the common problem in wireless EMG system which have been solved in this new design based on the indigenous knowledge.

Since the range of this small, light weight device is about 100 meters, it can be connected to the main device wirelessly, also can be closed around the muscle without any common errors like in its fixed types.
