Surface Electromyography (sEMG)

Surface Electromyography (sEMG) technology used at Dr. Dale Byrne in Southwest Calgary

Surface Electromyography (sEMG)

Doctors need to assess muscle function associated with patients’ impairments. Surface Electromyography (sEMG) helps doctors identify relationships and patterns between muscles that assist in creating effective care plans. sEMG measures the amount of naturally emitted electrical activity your muscles release when contracting. This is a completely non-invasive test and takes about 3 minutes to perform.The patient stands in a neutral posture and metal electrodes are placed to the patients back on either side of the spine at designated levels. This test gives the doctor a bar graph reading (as seen on the page) that indicates areas of high or low voltage. This image allows the doctor to present the patient with a quantifiable and easily understood image of the patient’s muscle activity. It shows what the doctor can feel through palpation and gives both doctor and patient a way to track and discuss progress. Read more…
