Abstract

Objectives: To study the correlation between anatomical parameters and EMGsignals by means of simulations. Methods: A mathematical model of the electrical activity from muscle fibres and motor units has been developed. The electrical fields around the muscle fibres are simulated using a line source model. The model permits the simulation of single muscle fibre action potentials obtained by SFEMG, concentric and Macro EMG electrodes. By using appropriate anatomical parameters EMG recordings with these electrodes can be simulated. The model is flexibleand permits a number of anatomical parameters to be changed such as; number of muscle fibres in a motor unit, fibre diameter distribution, and motor end-plate geometry. Some physiological parameters can be optionally varied;firing rate, threshold for recruitment, jitter. Results: In this study, simulations of CNEMG are performed and the influence of a number of parameters on the CNEMG signal is studied. It is shown that the model produces motor unit potentials reasonably well resembling those from live recordings. Mon important is however the relative change in MUPparameters when certain conditions are changed; number of muscle fibres ina motor unit, recording position, muscle fibre diameters and some special effects of the recording conditions. Conclusions: The simulated muscle and corresponding EMG recording can be used both as a research tool and for teaching. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
