FRAGA TRABA, Ricardo Alberto; MONTOYA PEDRON, Arquímedes; DIAZ SILVERA, Jorge Rey  and  CASTANEDA GARAY, Miguel. EMGSoft - Software for the Analysis of the Multichannel Surface Electromiografic Signal. RCIM [online]. 2021, vol.13, n.2  Epub Dec 01, 2021. ISSN 1684-1859.

Due to the lack of automatic processing of multi-channel surface electromyographic signals, software for processing these signals was developed and automatic criteria of expertise were applied for the interpretation of quantitative electromyography, which consists of algorithms for characterize the study of tremor and movement disorders. The system determined, for the resting state, the frequency and amplitude of the contractile activity, the timing of the tremor pattern and, depending on this, the presence of the alternating pattern, and the electromyographic activity bursts (trains) were quantitatively characterized. For the states of voluntary contraction, reciprocal inhibition and coactivation parameters were estimated between pairs of agonist and / or antagonist muscles. A validation process was carried out using a sample of records obtained in healthy and sick subjects (parkinsonian syndromes, Parkinson's disease, tremor and dystonias).

Keywords : electromyography methods; medical software; movement disorders.
