Abstract [en]

The objective of this paper is to investigate if bioelectrical signals, generated from trunk muscles identified in an electrocardiogram (ECG) signal presented in this paper as ECG-Trunk Muscles Signals amplitude (Ecg-TMSA) are correlated with Heart rate (HR) during different levels of physical activity and also if Ecg-TMSA is not influenced by mental activity. HR and Ecg-TMSA were derived from ECG in 14 subjects when walking and jogging at different treadmill velocities from 4–10 (km h−1). The mean relationship for all 14 subjects was HR = (42.3 ± 0.2) + (45.3 ± 2.8) Ecg-TMSA, r2 = 0.91. The result of one individual data points example for a 21 min experiment was (r2 = 0.93, p < 0.0001, n = 336). The obtained results show a linear relationship between Ecg-TMSA and HR. Moreover, the Ecg-TMSA was not affected by mental activity
