Abstract: The Surface electromyography (sEMG) signal is a kind of electrical signal which generated by human muscles during contraction. It is prone to being affected by noise because of its small amplitude, so it is necessary to remove the noise in its original signal with an appropriate algorithm. Based on the traditional signal denoising indicators, a new complex indicator r has been proposed in this paper which combines three different indicator parameters, that is, Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR), correlation coefficient (R), and standard error (SE). At the same time, an adaptive ensemble empirical mode decomposition (EEMD) method named AIO-EEMD which based on the proposed indicator is represented later. To verify the effective of the proposed algorithm, an electromyography signal acquisition circuit is designed firstly for collecting the original sEMG signal. Then, the denosing performance from the designed method is been compared with empirical mode decomposition (EMD) method and wavelet transform noise reduction method, respectively. The experiment results shown that the designed algorithm can not only automatically get the numbers of the reconstructed signal numbers, but also obtain the best reduction performance.
