Paper Title:
Investigation of the Relationship of Muscle Mechanical Characteristics with Biosignal Energy
  Abstract

Based on biosignal energy equality to the work performed by a muscle, in the estimation of energy dissipation within a biolotronic system, analytical expressions have been derived that have helped to calculate major mechanical characteristics of the muscle including elongation of the muscle, speed and acceleration of such elongation. The paper presents the analysis of relevant digital methods alongside with the formulae for the calculation of major mechanical characteristics when the relationship of a muscle biosignal that is presented in a graphical way. As shown, fatigue of the muscle is characterized by one of extreme points of the phase shift function. The values of the first and the second derivatives of the elongation function may be used for the evaluation of functional capacity of the muscle.
