Electromyography (EMG) is the measurement of the tiny electrical signals in your muscles when you tell them to move. These signals are typically less than one thousandth of a volt (0.001V or 1mV), so specialized equipment is required to accurately measure muscle signals.
Typical medical EMG systems cost thousands of dollars and are found only in hospitals or doctors’ offices. The FlexVolt goal is to make a functional and affordable EMG sensor that anybody can use to measure their biosignals, and we have met that goal.

Brendan Flynn, the guy behind FlexVolt, has a PhD in mechanical/biomedical engineering and has spent time working on research and hardware projects in fields including tissue engineering, cancer diagnosis and treatment, medical imaging, and biosensors. These endeavors have each required custom hardware and Brendan has built up a knowledge base of mechanical and electrical design along the way.
After years in university research using and customizing biomedical devices, Brendan decided to transition to work with a more direct impact. He set out with the goal of making biomedical technologies more accessible by producing hardware that is affordable and easy-to-use. FlexVolt is his first effort toward that goal.
