1.

PREPARE DEVICES READY

 

Start ErgoLink. Connect MCell and a smartphone with ErgoMobile app to a PC using USB port. Allow the PC to access the phone's memory by confirming the message on phone's window (see picture). It is recommended to use an external hard drive for the data storage.

2.

DEFAULT SETTINGS AND NAVIGATION IN ERGOLINK

Set the right folder path, where the data will be located

Enable automatic logging to ErgoCloud for regular use

3.

CREATE PROJECT AND PARTICIPANT IN ERGOLINK 

On ErgoLink's page 'Project management' create a 'Project' for the data. Select the Project and create a 'Participant' with the participant's information collected in the Participant Questionnaire. Obligatory items are marked with stars (*).  

Or select existing measurement file click open (or double-click the measurement) 

 

4.

SELECT ALL RELEVANT PARTICIPANT DATA FROM THE MEASUREMENT SESSION

 

Select the Participant and head to the page 'Download Measurement'. Make sure the MCell device and the phone is visible on the Download page. You must download all data from all devices at the same time in order to have synchronized video, EMG, and angle data.

 

Under MCell device, select the correct starting time of the measurement to the dropdown box.

 

In ErgoMobile, the IMU dots data is stored in DOCUMENTS and videos are stored in PICTURES under the folder MYONTEC. For the phone, to the upper box, select the measurement file ('start_time.csv') from the phone's memory. It is stored at: 
[Phone root]\Internal shared storage\Android\data\com.myontec.mbody_ergo\files\ErgoAnalysis\[Measurement start time]

Next, for the bottom box, select all video files, captured during the measurement. The path is:

[Phone root]\Pictures\Myontec\Ergo Analysis\[Start Time]\

When all is selected, check that all seems OK and click 'Transfer Files'.

5.

DATA IS READY

 

The data should now appear as a file under the selected participant. Open the file by double-clicking it. You will see the synchronized data in ErgoLink participant page.

Preparing and Analyzing

the Data for Reporting

1.

NAVIGATING IN ERGOLINK

 

1. Adjust the EMG scale bigger by dragging the yellow axis upwards. 
2. You can focus on a specified section in more detail with your mouse’s roller when placing your cursor in the middle of the desired area. 
3. You may resize the visible area also by dragging  from the bottom bars. 
You’ll get back to the original data window size by double clicking within the data window. 
4. Check that there are data sources from EMG  by clicking them  channel by channel

2.

DEFINE MVC AREAS AND VALUES (To set individual muscle maximum voluntary contraction EMG reference values)

  1. Move the blue  cursor to the start point of the MVC -test area.  

  2. Click the flag sign on the MVC bar. 

  3. Move the blue  cursor to the end point of the MVC -test area. 

  4. Click flag sign again on the MVC bar. 

  5. When successful, the MVC area will be highlighted with red colour. 

  6. Wrist flexor and extensor muscle MVC values are shown automatically  in the end of the MVC list.

NOTE!
Please note, that at this moment the wrist angle and angular speed curves are not visible yet! The offset settings need to be set first!
The arm elevation angle curve is visible because it’s measured together with the EMG channels in MCell.​

3.

WRIST ANGLE OFFSET SETTINGS

  1. Move the blue cursor at the point where the subject begins to keep his/her arm vertically in 90 degrees position.

  2. Click flag ”Vertical Wrist Angle” to offset angles to vertical position. When successful, the text turns green and marked area colour appears orange.

  3. Move the blue cursor at the point where the subject begins to keep his/her arm horizontally in 0 degrees position.

  4. Click (Horizontal Wrist Angles) flag to offset angles to horizontal position. When successful, the text turns green and marked area color appears orange

 

4.

SHOULDER ANGLE OFSET CALIBRATION 

1. Keep the blue cursor in arms 90 degrees position. Click angle icon 

2. Edit number 90 to sight shoulder setting and then click ok
