Surface EMG Sensor
The 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.
The sensor is extremely versatile, readily connecting to the portable DataLOG system, tethered DataLINK system or K800 Amplifier. All three instruments can be used to:
- Collect and display EMG data
- Integrate EMG data with data from other sensors
- Synchronise EMG data with third party systems such as:
- Video motion captures e.g. Vicon, Qualisys, and Peak Performance
- 3D force plate systems e.g. Kistler and AMTI
As well as recording EMG data, both the DataLOG and DataLINK systems provide software to software communication in real-time via the included Microsoft Dynamic Link Library (DLL). This means that EMG data can be collected in real-time in third party software with a minimum amount of programming.
To use the 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.
