Electromyography (BioEMG-Bioresearch Associates, Deer Borne, WI, USA) is a painless diagnostic tool used to measure the tiny electrical outputs that muscles put out both when they rest, and when they function. Think of an EMG like a tachometer reading several of the chewing muscles. It is possible for Bioresearch Associates’ EMG technology to connect with T-Scan technology, so that a CNO practitioner may actually objectively prove that the muscles are now working more efficiently/less hard after adjusting/aligning the bite with the data acquired from T-Scan. EMG is a required tool for DTR and MAGD computerized bite adjustment therapy in that it confirms whether or not muscular shutdown of the involved muscles has occurred or not, objectively.
