It is a small and affordable single-channel DIY muscle sensor for precise EMG sensing. It is a DIY version of Muscle BioAmp Candy that can be used to make amazing Human-Computer Interface (HCI) projects. What are you gonna make with it?
What is EMG?
Electromyography (EMG) is a technique for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles.
Electromyography is used in:
Physical therapy to name just a few.
Even doctors are using them for the diagnosis of various neuromuscular ailments.
Assembling the Kit:
It is a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Kit that comes with Muscle BioAmp BisCute PCB and the passive components (ceramic components, electrolytic capacitors, resistors, Quad OpAmp). You can assemble it in some simple steps that are given below.
Connecting with Arduino and BioAmp Cable:
After assembling the kit, you can pair it with any development board with an ADC (Arduino UNO & Nano, Espressif ESP32, Adafruit QtPy, STM32 Blue Pill, BeagleBone Black, Raspberry Pi Pico, to name just a few) or any standalone ADC of your choice.
To measure the EMG signals, just connect either BioAmp Cable v2 or BioAmp Cable v3 with the Muscle BioAmp BisCute as shown in the images below and get started.
