Our research propose a modern and complex exploration method of muscle performance by computerized acquisition and analysis of surface electromyography (SEMG) and mechanomyogram (MMG) during voluntary isometric maximal contraction of flexor hand fingers. The evolution of 12 classical (previously described in literature) SEMG and mechanographic parameters and new parameters and indices were analyzed with dedicated software. This modern exploration method allows precise, quantified, analysis of muscle performance and, by linear regressions and statistical analysis, permits to differentiate various groups of subjects.

Key words:

surface electromyography (EMGS), myomechanography (MMG), maximal isometric contraction, muscle performance
