  Hello,

I am currently working on a Haptic device and i want to record the EMG signals of different thumb muscle like flexor pollicis brevis (FPB), extensor pollicis brevis (EPB), flexor pollicis longus (FPL), extensor pollicis longus (EPL). I don't need to determine the MUAP, I want to dtermine the relationship between the EMG signals and the joint torque of the thumb. Is it possible to use surface electrodes or do i have to use fine wire electrodes?

Thanks for your help.
