Abstract

The application of wireless technology to monitor and record high quality real-time signals is playing an important role in todays̀ world. Various applications such as electromyography and electrocardiography require low-power and low-voltage portable wireless sensors for remote e-health monitoring. The use of such technology allows patients with muscle or heart problems to be monitored from the comfort of their home. Additionally, wireless implantable electromyogram sensing is also integrated in the design of intelligent myoelectric control for powered prostheses. The specifications within such applications constrain the design and development of wearable electromyographic sensors. This work presents a low-cost, portable, wireless non-invasive 8-channel system to monitor and classify electromyographic signals related to hand or finger movement. The proposed system operates at 1.0 V and draws a current of 1 mA in power-down mode. The paper also discusses the hardware and software implementation details and presents various measurement results. This work concludes through feature comparison with other similar technologies in the market.
