Description: 
The electromyography signals (EMG) are widely used for the joint movements and muscles contractions monitoring in several healthcare applications. The recent progresses in surface EMG (sEMG) technologies have allowed for the development of low invasive and reliable sEMG-based wearable devices with this aim. These devices promote long-term monitoring, however they are often very expensive and not easy to be appropriately positioned. Moreover they employ mono-use pre-gelled electrodes that can cause skin redness. To overcome these issues, a prototype of a new smart sock has been realized. It is equipped with reusable stretchable and non-adhesive hybrid polymer electrolytes-based electrodes and can send sEMG data through a low energy wireless transmission connection. The developed device detects EMG signals coming from the Gastrocnemius-Tibialis muscles of the legs and it is suitable …
