A new Modified Discrete Wavelets Packets Transform (MDWPT) based method for the compression of Surface EMG signal (s-EMG) data is presented. A Modified Discrete Wavelets Packets Transform (MDWPT) is applied to the digitized s-EMG signal. A Discrete Cosine Transforms (DCT) is applied to the MDWPT coefficients (only on detail coefficients). The MDWPT+ DCT coefficients are quantized with a Uniform Scalar Dead-Zone Quantizer (USDZQ). An arithmetic coder is employed for the entropy coding of symbol

The proposed approach was evaluated by the following parameters: Compression Factor (CF), Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR), Percent Root mean square Difference (PRD), Mean Frequency Distortion (MFD) and the Mean Square Error (MSE). Simulation results show that the proposed coding algorithm outperforms some recently developed s-EMG compression algorithms.
