Poly-Electromyography (Noraxon) ... Right-side..... Left-side
Note: on the left side the gait cycle is, unusually, from toe off to toe off, and the blue bars indicating normal activity are incorrect - she actually shows normal activity from initial contact to the next inital contact (marked by the vertical line). EMG of the right side is, as usual, from initial contact to inital contact and the blue bars in this case correctly represent normal activity.
