Abstract: The aim of this work is to define the pattern of summation of the muscle fibre twitches in the surface mechanomyogram (MMG) generation process. For this purpose, two groups of muscle fibres of the extensor digitorum communis (EDC) were stimulated using needle electrodes. To these two artificial (because made by different muscle fibre types) motor units (MU1 and MU2), we administered: (a) separate stimulations: 3 and 9 Hz (MU1), 8 and 20 Hz (MU2) for 5 s; (b) simultaneous stimulation: 3 Hz (MU1) + 8 Hz (MU2); 9…
