Whole-body quantification of spontaneous mechanical activities is of high interest for the assessment of the activity distribution in healthy and non-healthy population. Therefore, a measurement protocol and spatial mapping is investigated for accurate quantification of small subtle spontaneous activities in the human skeletal musculature over the whole-body. This work enables to assess spontaneous activity in muscular regions which are important for potential evaluation and grading in neuromuscular disorders.
