EMG Signal Detection and Diagnosis of Neuropathy Muscle Disease

R. Keerthana, S. Selvarani, P. Abidharani, D. Jegathiswari


In this paper EMG signal detection and diagnosis of neuropathy muscle disease from different patients. This paper investigates another commonly used method is electromyography by analysis and classification the EMG signals. The system has successfully implemented by using MATLAB’s software that was able to differentiate the EMG signal coming from different patients. The signal from respective patients can be easily identified by development of Graphical User Interface (GUI).
