Ultrasound assessment of the anatomical validity of T3 and L4 as sEMG recording sites

Perriman, Diana; Scarvell, Jennie; Waddington, Gordon; Lueck, Christian; Hughes, Andrew; Neeman, Teresa; Smith, Paul


The accuracy of surface EMG measurement is dependent upon minimizing potential crosstalk from other muscles. Although they are deeply situated, in places the erector spinae are covered with electrically silent aponeuroses rather than active muscle tissue. Theoretically these aponeuroses can serve as windows for sEMG recordings. A recent anatomical study concluded that T3 and L4 are ideal sites for recording the ES because the superficial muscle aponeuroses are wide at these sites. The aim of...[Show more]
