Abstract
The purpose of the present article is to characterize sEMG signals to determine muscular fatigue levels. To do this, the signal is decomposed using the discrete wavelet transform, which offers noise filtering features, simplicity and efficiency. sEMG signals on the forearm were acquired and analyzed during the execution of cyclic muscular contractions in the presence and absence of fatigue. When the muscle fatigues, the sEMG signal shows a more erratic behavior of the signal as more energy is required to maintain the effort levels.
