Noraxon USA will be hosting a half day workshop for those interested in learning about the science and application of surface electromyography (EMG) to assess muscle activation. Workshop attendees will learn the fundamentals necessary to get started using EMG in clinical scenarios, sport training, or research investigations. Hands on practice will be provided so attendees can experience using EMG for evaluating neuromuscular performance and performing biofeedback training.
At this workshop you will learn:
- How to prep for an EMG measure
- What to look for to determine if you are getting a good measurement
- What are the essentials of EMG data processing
- What you can and cannot measure with EMG
The workshop will be led by Erin Feser, Director of Education, and Coleman Bessert, Director of Research and Development at Noraxon USA. Erin came to Noraxon after spending nine years teaching biomechanics at University level. She holds a MS degree in Exercise and Health Studies and is currently a PhD Candidate conducting research with the Sport Performance Research Institute New Zealand. Coleman received his MS in Bioengineering from Arizona State University. He applies his unique experience of product development and innovation from companies like Nike, Johnson and Johnson, and EXOS to lead Noraxon’s biomechanics research and development initiatives.
