We simulate the effect that insulating or shielding a muscle may have on electromyographic signal propagation using the finite element method. The results suggest that the crosstalk between insulated or shielded muscles is small but that it increases with increasing subcutaneous fat. The findings may be useful in the control of multifunctional prostheses.
