Dynamic modeling of SEMG-force relation in the presence of muscle fatigue during isometric contractions

Abstract : Electromyogram signals contain information for predicting muscle force that can be used in human machine interaction and medical applications such as the control of prosthetic hands. Different methods exist for estimating the SEMG-force relation. However, muscle dynamic variations during voluntary contractions due to fatigue have been neglected in the identification stage. This would make the models not applicable to normal working conditions. We developed a model based on Laguerre expansion technique, LET, to identify the dynamic SEMG-force relation and investigate the presence of fatigue through kernel analysis. Our proposed data acquisition protocol was used to induce fatigue in the muscles involved in the act of grasping, hence enabling us to study the effects of muscle fatigue. The results of LET in comparison with fast orthogonal search and parallel cascade identification, which were able to accurately identify the desired dynamics, represent an improvement of 15% and 3.8% in prediction fitness, respectively. Moreover, by extracting median frequency (MDF) of the recorded SEMG signals and tracking its changes over time, the existence of muscle fatigue was studied. The results showed that fatigue had an impact on the Brachioradialis muscle. The first and second order kernels of the LET illustrated variations in the time and frequency domains similar to that of MDF for the Brachioradialis muscle corresponding to the fatigue generation process. Employing the proposed model the dynamics of SEMG-force relation can be predicted and its variations due to muscle fatigue can also be investigated. (C) 2016 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
