Brachialis muscle activity can be assessed with surface electromyography

Staudenmann, Didier ; Taube, Wolfgang

In: Journal of Electromyography and Kinesiology, 2015, vol. 25, no. 2, p. 199–204

The brachialis muscle (BR) represents an important elbow flexor and its activity has so far mainly been measured with intramuscular electromyography (EMG). The aim of this study was to examine whether the activity of the BR can be assessed with surface EMG without interference from the biceps brachii (BB). With eight subjects we measured surface EMG of the arm flexor synergists, BR, BB, and...
