Abstract: The technology is a valuable resource for movement analysis, especially for complex movement patterns such as those of the upper limb during activities of daily living (ADLs). Characterizing these patterns in healthy individuals is crucial to detect abnormal and compensatory movements resulting from neurological dysfunctions. This study aimed to characterize the neuromuscular activation pattern of the upper limb during the washing of the contralateral limb in 36 healthy individuals. The Biosignalsplux® equipment was used to monitor the activity of the main shoulder muscles, that is, Pectoralis Major (PM), Anterior Deltoid (AD), Middle Deltoid (MD), Posterior Deltoid (PD), Upper Trapezius (UT) and Lower Trapezius (LT), through electromyography (EMG) and accelerometry (ACC). The results show variations in the contraction pattern in the different phases of the activity. With this study it was possible to establish the normalized pattern of the activity of EMG and ACC of the shoulder com plex and respective movement phases. (More)
