Table 1 EMG-to-MTU mapping

From: Voluntary control of wearable robotic exoskeletons by patients with paresis via neuromechanical modeling

Recorded muscle EMG Musculotendon unit (MTU)
Gastrocnemius medialis gastrocnemius lateralis and gastrocnemius medialis
Tibialis anterior tibialis anterior
Soleus soleus
Vastus lateralis vastus intermedius, vastus lateralis
Vastus medialis vastus intermedius, vastus medialis
Semimembranosus semimembranosus, semitendinosus
Biceps femoris biceps femoris short head, biceps femoris long head
Rectus femoris rectus femoris
  1. Muscle groups from which experimental electromyography (EMG) signals were recorded and the associated musculotendon units (MTUs) in the computational modeling framework (Fig. 1c) that were driven by these EMG signals. In this study, the gastrocnemius medialis EMG also drove the gastrocnemius lateralis MTUs. The vastus intermedius EMG activity was calculated as the mean between the vastus lateralis and vastus medialis EMG signals. The long head and short head of the biceps femoris were driven by the same EMG signal. The same applied to the semimembranosus and semitendinosus
