The Tinkertron EMG Switch is designed to offer its users complete sensory of tiny muscle contractions. The switch is designed to detect and convert electromyographic (EMG) signals which are present on the skin through muscle activity in the user’s body into electrical information that is processed and input into a special switch closure used to output/activate the user’s assistive technology/device such as a wheelchair, keyboard, etc. The input to the EMG switch comes from cloth electrodes, which provides contact to the tiny signals on the surface of the skin. The EMG switch continuously monitors the signal under the electrodes, and when the signal level exceeds a user adjustable threshold, a relay is energized providing an isolated switch closure output.
