In a number of pathologies an alteration of muscle can be observed. Lack of oxygen availability (as in COPD), alteration of muscle mass and geometry (as in sarcopenia and neurological disorders) can determine for instance both central (motor unit recruitment order) and peripheral (fiber type distribution) adaptations. Such alterations are strongly related to the quality, intensity, shape of the sEMG recorded signal allowing to extract information starting from a functional approach. They can be used to track in time the evolution of the pathology and/or the effectiveness of the treatment thus offering a further window to monitor the patient.
