Complex Method for Localized Muscle Fatigue Evaluation

Authors: Vasilescu M., Rusu L., Nestianu V., Romanescu F., Dragomir M


The research was designed to examine the relationship between the development of muscle fatigue and the effect it has on sport performance, specifically during maximal voluntary contraction. This kind of this investigation using simultaneous electrophysiological and mechanical recordings, based on advanced mathematical processing, allows us to get parameters, and indexes in a short time, and finally, the mapping to use for the thorough investigation of the muscle contraction force, respectively the phenomenon of local muscle fatigue, both for athletes and other subjects.

Keywords: electromyography, mechanomyography, musclefatigue
