Using EMG to Provide Biofeedback
Electromyography (EMG) biofeedback is a technique used to help a subject better understand and recognize their own muscle tension in real-time. Biofeedback is valuable because it allows a subject to gain more control over the activation or relaxation of their muscles. With the use of auditory or visual cues, a subject can learn whether or not they’re properly using their muscles and can then be trained how to make corrections.
Noraxon EMG Biofeedback
EMG biofeedback has been shown to improve patient learning and awareness of proper muscle contraction, speed up progression, and improve motivation for patients to continue exercises as they observe measurable improvements. With Noraxon’s configurable biofeedback protocols, including visual & auditory cueing, clinicians can help patients gain sensitivity and, with practice, control their muscles. Using our customizable report options, therapy progression can be tracked to provide objective support for the current training regimen or any modifications.
In addition to the desktop software, a 2-channel biofeedback application is available on Android devices for quick and easy biofeedback training. Noraxon’s new Ultium EMG Biofeedback App gives clinicians a portable & user-friendly way to quickly start a measurement, view real-time data, and run a report. Click here to learn more.
