In this paper, we introduce a novel noise suppression method for electromyography (EMG) signals, based on statistical modeling of wavelet coefficients. First, we demonstrate that Generalized Autoregressive Conditional Heteroscedasticity (GARCH) effect exists in wavelet coefficients of EMG signals. Then, we use GARCH model for these coefficients. In consequence, we introduce a maximum a-posteriori (MAP) estimator ,based on GARCH modeling, for estimating the clean wavelet coefficients. To
