With which the health of the muscles and nerves in the human body is evaluated, and response or electrical activity from the muscles in response to the stimulation of the nerves is measured.

Performing the EMG process also allows the emergence of muscle disorders, if any, or the diagnosis of nerve disorders and, if necessary, their elimination.
