Comparing Surface and Fine-Wire Electromyography Activity of Lower Leg Muscles at Different Walking Speeds

Ankle plantar flexor muscles are active in the stance phase of walking to propel the body forward. Increasing walking speed requires increased plantar flexor excitation, frequently assessed using surface electromyography (EMG). Despite its popularity, validity of surface EMG applied on shank muscles...
