Labs for Quanser QNET Myoelectric Add-On Board
These labs along with the Quanser QNET Myoelectric add-on board introduce students to measurement, data analysis, and controls in biomedical engineering. In hands-on activities, students acquire, condition, and analyze electromyographic signals, and use a variety of filtering and control methods to control a servo based on the contraction of muscles. This includes experimenting with basic signal processing functions and control schemes, including filtering, rectification, integration, deadzone, and hysteresis. These activities are directly related to common EMG applications, such as myoelectric prosthetics, bioinstrumentation, diagnostic evaluation of muscle and nerve disorders, assisted control in wheelchairs, and unvoiced speed recognition.
