Abstract

In this study, motor response recordings were acquired from thenar and hypothenar muscles of poliomyelitis survivors, ALS patients and healthy participants by using CMAP Scan method. CMAP Scan curve was plotted by using 500 stimuli between minimum and maximum stimulus intensity. Automatic analysis software was developed with MATLAB for calculating CMAP Scan parameters. Statistical results revealed that step%, D50 and returner% values can differentiate healthy individuals from the patients. The developed software helps clinicians for following up the progression rate of the diseases which cause anterior horn cell degeneration.
