Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
A numerical approach to locate motor units in human muscles by hig density surface EMG measurements is presented. For this purpose a mathematical model has been derived which can be evaluated by finite element computations. On that basis an optimal control problem is specified that can be solved by a function space oriented optimization method. Numerical results are reported for a test problem.
