EMG and ECG    

IWS940, The "Muscle Link", is a development kit for creating applications utilizing electromyography (EMG).

It includes the EMG sensor IWS940, cables, and electrodes. The IWS940 is a compact, lightweight, and affordable EMG sensor equipped with an insulation circuit to ensure human safety and a noise cancellation circuit. The kit comes with a simple and easy-to-understand demo application, as well as development libraries and control commands for integration into applications. This kit can be applied to a wide range of fields including robotics, computer science, sports science, marketing, music, art, games, education, and more.

What's inlcuded?


Q: What is the "muscle electrical intensity" obtained from the IWS940 sensor?

A: It is a value corresponding to muscle strength, derived from unique methods of electromyographic waveform signal analysis. When the force is weak, the muscle electrical intensity will be a small value, and as the force increases, it will show a larger value. By using muscle electrical intensity, there is no need to develop programs for noise removal or signal analysis.

Q: Can the raw waveform of electromyography be obtained through the IWS940?

A: Yes, it is possible. Please create a program for serial communication by referring to the datasheet of the IWS940.
