On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, I welcome Andrew Vigotsky and Dr. Nick Rolnick back on to the show to discuss Andrew’s paper, Interpreting single amplitude in sports and rehab sciences.
In this episode, the team discuss
-What information can you conclude from a surface EMG study
-The limitations of surface EMG research
-What to look for in a surface EMG methods section
