Abstract

Muscle fatigue is a long lasting reduction of the ability to contract and it is the condition when produced force is reduced. Walking fast can cause muscle fatigue, which is unhealthy and it is incurable when the level of fatigue is high. Muscle fatigue during walk can be determined using several spectral variables. The amplitude and frequency of the surface EMG signal provide a more accurate reflection of motor unit pattern among these spectral variables. This research reports on the effectiveness of Empirical mode decomposition (EMD) and wavelet transform based filtering method applied to the surface EMG (sEMG) signal as a means of achieving reliable discrimination of the muscle fatigue during human walking exercise. In this research, IAV, RMS and AIF values were used as spectral variable. These spectral variables extensively identifies the difference between fatigue and normal muscle when using EMD method compared with other different wavelet functions (WFs). The result shows that the sEMG amplitude and frequency momentously changes from rest position to maximum contraction position.
