SURFACE ELECTROMYOGRAPHY (SEMG) - WHAT IS IT AND HOW CAN IT HELP
Presenter: Pedro Teixeira, PT
Surface Electromyography is a technique that can enhance the quality and value of traditional rehabilitation programs. Although unintentional, many health practitioners choose to ignore the measurement of muscle tension and therefore miss-out on its potential benefit to their clients and practice. The Biofeedback Federation of Europe (BFE) is excited to give all interested clinicians the opportunity to learn what they have been missing by watching this recording.
In this recorded webinar, Pedro Teixeira explains what surface electromyography is, as well as gives a few examples of surface electromyography's application. He references research studies published in peer-reviewed magazines to support all the information that is shown during the session. To end the session, Mr. Teixeira provides a practical example of how useful surface electromyography can be as a complementary technique to rehab.
