In this work we describe a combined wireless sensor, able to capture either the electromyographic (EMG) or the electrocardiographic (ECG) signal. Since the two signals differ mainly because of their bandwidths, with the ECG being shifted towards lower frequencies, a simple and inexpensive circuit solution has been developed to allow an optional software-based bypass of the high-pass filtering action incorporated in the EMG signal amplifier, without sacrificing neither signal quality nor bandwidth in the much more demanding EMG path.

Abstract

In this work we describe a combined wireless sensor, able to capture either the electromyographic (EMG) or the electrocardiographic (ECG) signal. Since the two signals differ mainly because of their bandwidths, with the ECG being shifted towards lower frequencies, a simple and inexpensive circuit solution has been developed to allow an optional software-based bypass of the high-pass filtering action incorporated in the EMG signal amplifier, without sacrificing neither signal quality nor bandwidth in the much more demanding EMG path.
