Journal Article

This study deals with the development of an efficient signal representation in bioelectric signal analysis. The authors used, as an example, macro EMG, which is a new electromyographic recording technique, and performed a quantitative comparison of the reconstructed signals with the original. It is shown that by splitting the macro EMG motor unit potential, it is possible to condense all significant information in each potential into a set of 18 numbers. The signal reconstructed from these numbers has an rms error less than 6% and contains all phases, peaks, duration and amplitude of the original signal. The technique need not be restricted to the representation of macro EMG potentials but can also be used for other biological signals.
