Electromyography is the subject that deals with the detection and analysis of electrical activity emanating from skeletal muscles when they are neurologically activated. It is clinically used as a diagnostic tool for neuro-muscular diseases, motor control disorders etc. It is an exceedingly complicated signal dependent on various independent factors such as the anatomical and physiological properties of muscles, characteristics of the acquisition systems. EMG plays a major role in present day bio-medical research, especially in hand rehabilitation. The use of Electromyography in robotics usually involve identifying the motion carried out by the arm, by training a system to recognize the changes in the electromyography signals of the muscles. This is done by proper conditioning of the signals and extracting features feeding the features for classification into suitable classifiers.
