Wireless EMG Systems

Freely record and measure electrical activity produced by muscles, using wireless EMG sensors.

Wireless EMG is useful for a wide range of applications within exercise physiology. ADInstruments’ wireless solutions are ideal for recording muscle tissue contractions and electrical muscle activity in your subjects, especially when range of movement and comfort are important.

Applications for wireless electrodes include track & field and gymnastics; but our wireless EMG solutions are also ideal for ‘on the spot’ applications, or when small, difficult to isolate muscles are being assessed.

Whether you are studying motor control for patient rehabilitation or muscle performance, activity, and fatigue in elite athletes, ADInstruments offers streamlined wireless systems that let you record and measure electrical muscle activity simply and easily.

In conjunction with our solutions shown below, any device (i.e. ergometer, exercise bike, treadmill) with an analog output (+/- 10V) can be connected to a PowerLab data acquisition system for synchronization of event in LabChart. So you have even more flexibility and can integrate all your data streams in one place.

All of our hardware recommended for human use is backed by the appropriate safety certification standards. More information on safety standards.

Signals Supported


Delsys Trigno solutions also support recording of ECG/EKG for easy processing of heart rate, heart rate variability and similar functions.


Electromyography (EMG) is the study of muscle electrical activity. Surface EMG provides information about aggregate motor unit activity in superficial muscle.


Through the use of force sensitive resistors in the Delsys Trigno product range, you are able to detect and record up to four voltages corresponding to applied force (0.1N-10N) under varieties of conditions.

Electrode Placement

Electrodes should be placed between a motor point and tendon insertion, or between two motor points. They should also be placed along the midline of the muscle in order to prevent signal crosstalk between adjacent muscles. By placing electrodes parallel to the longitudinal axis of the muscle, this also ensures the detection surfaces will interest common muscle fibres.
