Optomyography: A novel approach of detecting muscular signals using optical sensors

Optomyography is a novel, non-invasive, non-contact optical method to measure muscular signals of the human body for diagnosing muscular disorders. It is also considered as an emerging technique for making better human-machine interfaces. Matt, Amrit, and Maneesh conducted an optomyogram experiment at Cornell University to sense the movement of fingers and wrist, and eventually to detect hand gestures. The ...
