|Title:||Correlation Between Mechanomyography Features And Passive Movements In Healthy And Paraplegic Subjects|
Da S. N. Button V.L.
|Abstract:||Mechanomyography (MMG) measures both muscular contraction and stretching activities and can be used as feedback in the control of neuroprostheses with Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES). In this study we evaluated the correlation between MMG features and passive knee angular movement of rectus femoris and vastus lateralis muscles acquired from healthy volunteers (HV) and spinal cord injured volunteers (SCIV). Twelve HV and thirteen SCIV were submitted to passive and FES elicited knee extensions and in each extension, eleven windows of analysis with 0.5s length were inspected. Temporal (RMS and INT) and frequency (MF and 3) features were extracted. Spearman correlation coefficients (p) were computed in order to check correlations between the features obtained from both MMG sensors. The correlation between MMG MF and MMG temporal analysis (RMS and INT) to HV was classified as positive, moderate (p from 0.635 to 0.681) and high (p from 0.859 to 0.870), and weak (positive e negative) to SCIV. These results differ from those obtained in voluntary contraction or artificially evoked by functional electrical stimulation and may be relevant in applications with closed loop control systems. © 2011 IEEE.|
