The Desktop DTS system can operate any configuration between 4 and 16 channels or it can be combined with a 2nd system to operate up to 32 channels. The default system is equipped with EMG preamplifiers but can be upgraded or synchronized with other biomechanical sensors such as goniometers, inclinometers, foot switches, etc. Additionally, the Desptop DTS can operate in stand-alone analog out mode for easy syncing with motion capture and other peripheral equipment. The perfect solution for any research lab.
The Desktop Direct Transmission System (DTS) for EMG and other clinical biomechanical sensors directly transmits data from the electrode of sensor site to a desktop reciever. This direct transmission concept greatly simplifies the arrangement of EMG measurements. It eliminates the need to arrange cable connection between the EMG electrodes and EMG amplifier. The small, lightweight probes also are beneficial for small subjects like children and small animals. The default system comes equipped with Research DTS Wireless EMG Sensors, sensor leads – pinch, sensor battery charger, USB A to mini B cable, 16 dual electrodes (sample pack), 200 pieces double sided tape, myoMUSCLE software, desktop USB Receiver.

Symmetry and Coordination Tests
These various tests allow for the comparison of affected and unaffected sides. Display the EMG and histogram statistics for unilateral, bilateral, multi joint and symmetrical movements. Evaluate the neuromuscular coordination and compare innervation deficiencies between right and left sides.
Average Activation Patterns
Clinicians can assess repeated movement sequences and exercises while creating averaged and time normalized EMG patterns. Analyze the typical innervation structure of movements.
EMG Standard Analysis
The DTS uses universal protocol for all kinds of EMG setups. View basic amplitude parameters in selected analysis periods. Use standard graphs and histograms designed for general analysis questions.
Use the bar graph display of signals to provide precise training of dysfunctional muscle groups with both acoustic and optical automatic training assistance.
The protocol for this analysis was designed for unilateral and bilateral investigation of EMG gait patterns in functional walking and running activities. View typical activity characteristics and coordination of muscle groups during walking/running while analyzing left/right, pre/post test comparisons. Symmetry, timing and curve characteristics are summarized.
Use background templates for biofeedback training. Create EMG/angle/force templates using the healthy side. Use biofeedback and motor learning concepts to confirm the accuracy of performance.
