Electromyography (EMG)

Electromyography (EMG) is a technique used for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles. This is done by placing small electrodes on an individuals bare skin to measure the electrical activity of the muscles. These electrical signals can then be analyzed to detect medical abnormalities, activation level, recruitment order or to analyze the biomechanics of human movement.
