The objective of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of AM-FM features extracted from surface electromyographic (SEMG) signals for the assessment of neuromuscular disorders at different force levels. SEMG signals were recorded from a total of 40 subjects, 20 normal and 20 patients, at 10%, 30%, 50%, 70% and 100% of maximum voluntary contraction (MVC), from the biceps brachii muscle. From the SEMG signals, we extracted the instantaneous amplitude, the instantaneous frequency and the instantaneous phase. For each AM-FM feature their histograms were computed for 32 bins. For the classification, three classifiers were used: (i) the statistical K-nearest neighbour (KNN), (ii) the neural self-organizing map (SOM) and (iii) the neural support vector machine (SVM). For all classifiers the leave-one-out methodology was implemented for the classification of the SEMG signals into normal or pathogenic. The test results reached a classification success rate of 80% when a combination of the three AM-FM features was used.
