SMART EMG SLEEVE FOR MUSCLE TORQUE ESTIMATION

GWO-TSUEN JOU CHIEN-LUNG SHEN
2020 Zenodo  
In this study, the smart EMG sleeve is developed. Through integrating the wearable EMG device, the smart EMG sleeve become more comfortable, therefore the user will not feel the existence of electrodes. The proposed EMG sleeve can measure the EMG and movement of arm and the new kind of fabric electrode is also developed to reduce the drawback of traditional electrodes. The fabric electrodes can provide very comfortable feeling for user. In order to transfer the raw EMG to useful information,
