Description: Granted, using our muscles to
control things is the way that most of us are accustomed to doing it. We
push buttons, pull levers, move joysticks… but what if we could take
the buttons, levers and joysticks out of the equation? That’s right,
take the electrical signal straight from the muscle and put it into your
device. Thanks to shrinking amplifier technology, we can now do exactly
Measuring muscle activity by detecting its electric potential,
referred to as electromyography (EMG), has traditionally been used for
medical research. However, with the advent of ever shrinking yet more
powerful microcontrollers and integrated circuits, EMG circuits and
sensors have found their way into all kinds of control systems.
This sensor will measure the filtered and rectified electrical
activity of a muscle; outputting 0-Vs Volts depending the amount of
activity in the selected muscle, where Vs signifies the voltage of the
power source. It’s that easy: stick on a few electrodes (not included),
read the voltage out and flex some muscles!
Note: This package of Muscle Sensor v3 doesn't include
biomedical sensor pads and cables. Both the
pads and cable are available with Muscle Sensor v3 kit (SEN-2512).
