The Bicep Muscle Rep Counter with SEMG is a device that was made to develop three repetition thresholds or difficulty levels from a fully-flexed bicep brachii muscle and signal to the user when consequent bicep muscle contractions pass said thresholds or levels. This device can be used when performing a bicep-focused movement or when generally flexing the bicep muscle. Essentially, this device serves to make sure each repetition of a muscle contraction passes a percentage value calculated from the electrical activity outputted from a max contraction.
The device is not designed for and does not produce data for muscle growth, workout regimes, muscle health diagnoses, or anything other than the purpose of creating difficulty levels from a sample taken and notifying the user when following muscle contractions pass the threshold.
