NEW PRODUCTS – MyoWare Muscle Sensor / Muscle Sensor Surface EMG Electrodes – H124SG Covidien – Pack of 6
Have your next project be controlled by your muscles with the MyoWare Muscle Sensor and Muscle Sensor Surface EMG Electrodes! Pair the MyoWare with some Electrodes and a microcontroller (ie. Raspberry Pi, Arduino, or Beagle Bone Black) to create a DIY low-cost version of an EMG or an electromyograph!
Electromyography is an electrodiagnostic medicine technique for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles. Use these sensors in prosthetics, robotics, and so much more! Once you attach the sensor to a large muscle (like your bicep) you can flex and measure the signal spike as an analog voltage.
These MyoWare Muscle Sensors are designed to be used by hobbyists, backyard tinkerers, and students alike. Check the datasheet for more information and both setup configurations as well as setup instructions.
Note: Electrodes and Arduino (or other analog-reading microcontroller) not included, you’ll need both to get readings out of the Myoware!
The H124SG Covidien electrode type has a pre-gelled adhesive side with non-irritating gel, especially developed to prevent allergic reactions. The foam electrode is latex free and therefore suitable for every skin type.
The snap-on connector can easily be pushed on or removed from the electrode lead on the MyoWare. Therefore you have optimal user friendliness as you dispose this electrode after every session! No more greasy electrodes as the H124SG will cover the surface of the electrode. This also extends the life of your electrodes.
Note: MyoWare Muscle Sensor and microcontroller not included
