For GM muscle, it had been possible to predict the burst number by using either the 35% or 45% threshold value but the correlation between actual and estimated number of bursts was not significant for the 25% threshold value except 7th and 11th workloads (Table 3a).
The data had shown that the number of bursts estimated with 45% threshold; do not reflect the actual burst number and might not be used for further EMG analysis.
Another possibility is that the selected threshold could be high enough to crop some bursts which may result with underestimating the burst number.
