Surface electromyography (SEMG) dynamic protocols were developed to facilitate the assessment of SEMG resting and activity amplitude potentials and to guide muscular reeducation and rehabilitation. The author created a database that identifies the average and standard deviation of muscular amplitude potentials during rest and activity through the pertinent joint ranges of motion (ROM). This enables researchers, clinicians, and ergonomists to obtain numerical results within the range of the values in the database and obtain more effective and efficient values of muscular energy consumption. The database is also paramount to the normalization of dysfunctional muscular activity patterns during activity and rest.
