Computer control using electromyography (EMG)

Project Summary:

My project team designed an EMG system that would use muscle movements to control a golf video game. The purpose was to aid in muscular rehabilitation after events such as a stroke.

Intro and Background:

This project was the final assignment f or my Medical Instrumentation course. It was an open-ended project completed with a partner. My partner and I decided to design a 2-Channel EMG that controlled a game written using the Processing IDE.

Technical Highlights:

  • 2-channel EMG circuit
  • Arduino for signal acquisition and communication
  • Game written in the Processing IDE
  • Eagle schematic design and PCB layout
