Abstract: In this paper, method for discrimination of EMG signals is proposed. EMG signal is decomposed into set of narrow band signal using empirical mode decomposition (EMD) process known as intrinsic mode functions (IMFs). The features namely mean, standard deviation, variance and Entropy of the intrinsic mode functions (IMFs) generated by EMD process is used to discrimination of myopathy, neuropathy, and healthyEMG signals. The statistical features of IMFs have provided better discrimination performance.
