Muscle fatigue detection is one of the important applications of surface electromyography (sEMG) measurement during exercise and fitness. However, there are still few sEMG monitoring systems by using wireless technology. The implementation of wireless sEMG monitoring system offers more advance to support people including safer, smarter, and user-friendly application. The wireless sEMG system for monitoring and guiding people during exercise in maintaining biceps muscle based on muscle fatigue is proposed in this paper. The proposed application is developed to be running on android smartphone and Personal Computer (PC). The smartphone application for android platform is designed and developed by using Eclipse IDE. The system also has been successfully implemented by using Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP) that able to invoke the MatLab as PC application to monitor the sEMG signal. Furthermore, the sEMG signal is computed by using MatLab Software to calculate and analyze muscle fatigue. Based on the testing and implementation shows that the android smartphone can achieve to send the sEMG signal. Furthermore, it can receive the computes and analyzes result of sEMG signal from the PC. It is an important reference value to the wireless sEMG monitoring system. The system also can help to maintain biceps muscle until exercise complete. Detailed information about the design and implementation result is reported in this paper. The result of the testing and implementations has proven that the system is correct and feasible.
