Any sufficiently advanced muscle sensor is indistinguishable from myoelectric magic
Myoware 2.0 Muscle Sensor
Redesigned so setup is a snap!
The MYOWARE 2.0 Muscle Sensor has been redesigned from the ground up with a new easy-to-use, compact design and upgraded with the latest and greatest chipset improving sensor performance and reliability.
Setup is a snap with the new innovative snap connector system which eliminates the need to solder connections for the MYOWARE 2.0 Ecosystem.
Topside connectors link to the power and the EMG envelope output of the sensor; bottom side link to the input electrodes.
How it works
The harder you flex, the higher the output voltage
MYOWARE 2.0 Muscle Sensor measures muscle activity through the electric potential of the muscle, commonly referred to as surface electromyography (EMG or sEMG for short). When your brain tells your muscle to flex, it sends an electrical signal to your muscle to start recruiting motor units (the bundles of muscle fibers that generate the force behind your muscles).
The harder you flex, the more motor units are recruited to generate greater muscle force. The greater the number of motor units, the more the electrical activity of your muscle increases. The MYOWARE 2.0 Muscle Sensor will analyze this electrical activity and output a signal that represents how hard the muscle is being flexed.
