ABSTRACT
Electromyography (EMG) has been widely used as a tool to understand and distinguish between normal and pathological gait. This study aims at understanding the activation patterns of lower limb muscles viz. Gastrocnemius and Tibialis Anterior in the dominant leg of subjects with normal (n=5) as well as pathological (n=2) gait patterns. The paper presents a normative pattern of these muscles during normal walking condition from which the deviation of affected group from the control group is observed. For this analysis, Surface EMG signals along with Force Sensitive Resistor values are acquired. These surface EMG signals picked up during the muscle activity are interfaced with a PC via EMG acquisition system. The acquired signals were processed and analyzed which can be used for rehabilitative therapy planning.
