Description Attachments

The MyoWare® 2.0 Muscle Sensor Basic Kit is a compact, Arduino-compatible, all-in-one electromyography (EMG) sensor kit that allows you to measure and visualize muscle activity with ease. This kit comes with the MyoWare 2.0 LED Shield that you can simply snap on, EMG sensor pads, a mini screwdriver for shield removal, a USB A to C cable for recharging the 40mAh LiPo battery, and a MyoWare 2.0 Reference Cable for connecting to large muscle groups.

The MyoWare 2.0 Muscle Sensor has been upgraded with a new design and chipset to improve performance and reliability. This sensor measures muscle activity through the electric potential of the muscle, also known as surface electromyography (EMG or sEMG). As you flex your muscle, your brain sends an electrical signal to your muscle to start recruiting motor units (the bundles of muscle fibers that generate the force behind your muscles).

The harder you flex, the more motor units are recruited, increasing the electrical activity of your muscle. The MyoWare 2.0 Muscle Sensor analyzes this increased activity and outputs a signal that represents the intensity of the muscle flex. The kit's innovative snap connector system eliminates the need for soldering with the MyoWare 2.0 LED Shield. The 10-segment bar graph provides a visual representation of muscle activation - the more activation, the higher the LEDs on the board will light up!

This kit is perfect for a variety of applications. Use it to monitor muscle exertion during a workout, as an educational tool to learn about muscle activity, or even to add a unique touch to your Halloween costume. Please note, this kit does not include a microcontroller and is not intended for use in the diagnosis or treatment of disease or other conditions.

The MyoWare® 2.0 Muscle Sensor Basic Kit is a result of a collaboration with Brian Kaminski from Advancer Technologies. A portion of each sale goes back to them for product support and continued development.
