Example text

This activation initiating muscle contraction is accompanied by a change in potential along both the neuron and the muscle fibers; it is this change in bioelectric potential that is the basis of the EMG signal. 4 The intensity of the signal (amplitude) is directly proportional to the number of motor units that are activated. In other words, the more muscle units activated, the larger the amplitude of the signal. Hence, the EMG signal is used as an indication of muscle activity-the greater the muscle activity the greater the amplitude of the signal.

Next have your partner put the electroconductive paste on the electrodes and attach the two active electrodes over the muscle belly and the ground electrode on a nearby area. Secure the electrodes either with an adhesive collar or tape. Figure 7 illustrates how to use the adhesive collar, and Figure 8, the use of tape.
