Abstract

Epoch-based electromyogram (EMG) amplitude estimates have not incorporated signal whitening, even though whitening has demonstrated significant improvements for stream-based estimates. This paper presents new epoch-based algorithms, for both single-and multiple- channel EMG, which include a whitening stage. The best multiple-channel whitening processor provides a 18%-22% improvement over single-channel unwhitened estimation.
