Novel tattoo electrode for HighDensity surface Electromyography

High-density surface electromyography (HDsEMG) enables simultaneous recording of muscle activation distributed across the skin surface under the electrode area. Because of its ability to perform non-invasive recordings with high spatial fidelity, HDsEMG plays an exclusive role in clinical and neuroscientific research (i.e. identifying neuro-muscular junction, measuring the conduction velocity, Motor Unit discrimination, etc). HDsEMG in its current form is not yet well accepted in clinical settings. We demonstrate here a novel tattoo electrode that addresses these issues.


Sourav Chandra works in the area of human neuromuscular control for the last thirteen years on humans in health and major neurological diseases. His work includes precision rehabilitation and quantification of sensorimotor system deficits in neurological disorders with the help of various engineering techniques. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab and the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Northwestern University, Chicago. Prior to his postdoctoral work, he has finished his Ph.D. in Biomedical Robotics from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. He has published several research articles and book chapters on his research. He has received several scholarships and awards throughout his career.
