Leads, Electromyograph

Definition : Leads designed to conduct electrical biosignals caused by the activity of the skeletal muscles from electrodes placed within or near the muscles to an impedance matching device (known as a headstage) and/or preamplifier which in turn is connected through a cable to an electromyograph (EMG). These leads (known as patient leads) typically consist of flexible wires (e.g., 3, 5) that are completely isolated except at the electrode end. EMG leads are used with equipment intended to detect, process, and record the electrical activity of the skeletal muscles, such as electromyographs or evoked potential units with electromyography capabilities.
