TNSRE, Featured ArticlesDesign and characterization of a textile electrode system for the detection of High-Density sEMG
Muscle activity monitoring in dynamic conditions is a crucial need in different scenarios, ranging from sport to rehabilitation science and applied physiology. The acquisition of surface electromyographic (sEMG) signals by means of grids of electrodes (High-Density sEMG, HD-sEMG) allows to... Read more
