Muscle Man

Introduction

The EMG System offers an EMG Findings function, where it's possible to set an interpretation for each investigated muscle.
A table, with muscle names, interpretations and parameter scorings is included in the EMG Report.
The Muscle Man is created automatically and inserted into the report, based on the muscle names and interpretations in the EMG Findings table.
For each muscle, the Interpretation is converted into a color code and presented graphically.
