Surface EMG Sensor
Our Surface EMG Sensor (SX230) is an active probe which provides superb quality of signal and ease of use. Unique to the design is the amplifier's input impedance of >10,000,000 M Ohms. This means in practice that little or no skin preparation is required and no conducting gels are required. To use the SX230 EMG sensor simply apply the electrode to the muscle being measured using the die cut medical grade double sided adhesive tape (part no. T350). The quality of the signal received is excellent for both static and dynamic applications.
The surface EMG Sensor (SX230) is extremely versatile, readily connecting to the portable DataLOG system and the tethered DataLINK system and the K800 Amplifier.
All three of these instruments can be used to:
- Collect and display the EMG data
- Integrate the EMG data with data from other sensors
- Synchronise the EMG data with third party systems such as
- Video motion capture such as Vicon, Qualysis, and Peak Performance
- 3D force plate systems such as Kistler and AMTI
As well as recording the EMG data, both the DataLOG and DataLINK systems provide software to software communication in real time via the included Microsoft Dynamic Link Library. This means that your EMG data can be collected in real time in third party software with a minimum amount of programming.
The DataLINK system and K800 amplifier can be interfaced to third party hardware, such as National Instruments A to D cards via the R2000i Analogue output cable.
