Human beings follow a unique bipedal walking pattern referred to as gait and kinesiology is the scientific study pertaining to movement. Gait analysis has been an evolving area of study and in recent years its application in the development of orthosis, exoskeletons and rehabilitative devices is inevitable. Electromyogram (EMG) being a natural occurring physiological signal providing valuable information on neuro-muscular and musculoskeletal morphologies, its role is indispensable in analysing the underlying cause of movement pathologies. This paper reviews the contributions of EMG in movement analysis so far and its significance to the development of patient specific control of orthotic and rehabilitative applications.

Abstract


Human beings follow a unique bipedal walking pattern referred to as gait and kinesiology is the scientific study pertaining to movement. Gait analysis has been an evolving area of study and in recent years its application in the development of orthosis, exoskeletons and rehabilitative devices is inevitable. Electromyogram (EMG) being a natural occurring physiological signal providing valuable information on neuro-muscular and musculoskeletal morphologies, its role is indispensable in analysing the underlying cause of movement pathologies. This paper reviews the contributions of EMG in movement analysis so far and its significance to the development of patient specific control of orthotic and rehabilitative applications.
