Electromyography is useful for those interested in the study of biological signals and their processing, identifying the characteristics of these signals is valuable for the design of prosthetic and robotic systems or in rehabilitation for patients with pathologies of the lower limb. In this case, in particular, the EMG signals of the biceps femoris generated during the gait cycle are intended to characterize the muscle activation signals during walking. For the development of this database, one hundred users were invited to participate. They received instructions for the experiment and signed an informed consent form indicating their agreement to participate so that they were aware of how their data would be acquired, processed, stored, and protected.


The database has two files; the file vGRF_signal.xslx contains the processed and normalized information of the 100 GRF samples obtained during the experiment. Concerning the vGRF_dataset.csv file it has that:

1.      1. The first column within the vGRF_dataset.csv file refers to the sample number of the experiment.


2.      2. Thereafter, the columns are labeled according to the extracted feature.
