What is it?
Muscle BioAmp Patchy v0.2 is a small wearable muscle sensor for precise EMG sensing. The sensor can be snapped directly to the electrodes, eliminating electrode cables.
What are you going to make with it?
We have some project ideas for you: https://bit.ly/UDL-projects
What will you get?
- Muscle BioAmp Patchy

What is EMG?
Electromyography (EMG) is a technique for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles.
Electromyography is used in some real-world applications like,
- Prosthetic hands,
- Human augmentation,
- Games controllers,
- Rehabilitation and
- Physical therapy to name just a few.
Even doctors are using them for the diagnosis of various neuromuscular ailments.
Recently, It was in the news that Meta is working on wearable EMG sensors to track user movements in the metaverse.
Connecting with Arduino:
To get started, you can pair Muscle BioAmp Patchy 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.
For the connections and electrode placements, you can follow the diagram given below:
Why did we make Muscle BioAmp Patchy?
EMG devices are typically quite expensive, as they are medical-grade diagnostic devices. But with an affordable EMG sensor like this, you can record biopotential signals from muscles, conduct experiments and make amazing projects at a fraction of the cost of a professional EMG machine.
We want to make neuroscience affordable and accessible to all so that students and researchers get inclined towards neuroscience and explore it by doing awesome projects at ease.
