Harper Adams University in Newport, South Wales, have used Myon’s wireless electromyography (EMG) system for the study of equine gait. The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of ground pole work on the equine rectus abdominus (RA) muscle in walk and trot.

Eight horses performed four conditions and in each condition the activity in the RA muscle (left and right sides) were measured using Myon wireless surface EMG. The EMG transmitter was secured in place by a band tied around the horse’s abdomen.
