This shield is likely to be the top board in a stack, so solder on some 1x3 male headers and plug into the sensor board. The power is supplied on the LED shield, but controlled by the power switch on the sensor. Once the stack is assembled, snap on some electrodes and stick the sensor on the target muscle.
The MyoWare Muscle Sensor to which this shield attaches is an Arduino-powered, all-in-one electromyography (EMG) sensor from Advancer Technologies. The MyoWare board acts by measuring the filtered and rectified electrical activity of a muscle, outputting 0-Vs Volts depending on the amount of activity in the selected muscle, where Vs signifies the voltage of the power source.
Note: The MyoWare Power Shield and the MyoWare LED Shield both provide power, but at slightly different voltages. Don’t use both of these shields at the same time.
Note: This item may take longer to process due to battery installed in the equipment and therefore does not qualify for same-day shipping policy. Additionally, these batteries can not be shipped via Ground or Economy methods to Alaska or Hawaii. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
