To objectively diagnose the severity of spasticity, it is important to measure the muscle activity accurately. Filtered EMG has an offset above zero which is part noise and part background activity. The goal of this study is to separate these two parts, using a non-linear neuromuscular ankle model. The model uses positional and EMG data as...

Relevance: To enhance our understanding of motor impairments (e.g. post-stroke or due to Parkinson's Disease), objective measures for communication in the nervous system are required. By applying system identification techniques to oscillations in brain and muscle activity, we can objectively quantify the coupling between these areas.<br/><br/...

Ultrasound gives the opportunity to look at muscles and observe their change in length. This tool has increased the knowledge about muscle-tendon dynamics and sometimes revealed surprising muscle stretch behaviour. System identification experiments use robots to disturb the ankle and measure its torque and angle. Muscle movement is derived from...
