Electromyography (EMG) sensing technology and nerve conduction studies have a long history of success in diagnosing neurological disorders. Now with the advent of wearable EMG devices, these muscle sensors are finding success in other applications such as robot control, augmented reality, and biofeedback. This blog highlights some of these applications, many of which are demonstrated with older wired-style EMG sensors.
