unit measure of EMG readings

Hello there,
i look up a bit on the new sdk and i noticed that EMG ranges are from -127 to 127 (8 bits). I was wondering if they have a unit of measurement like mV perhaps.

Anyone to answer this question? I am having the same question.

What is a unit of measurement for EMG sensor?

MYO Visualizer displays us meaningful information about 8 EMG sensors but no clues what their measurement unit is.

Please answer for this question if anyone knows.
(If not, documentation should be updated)

I would definitely be interested in this information as well.

anyone figured out this yet? I think you can check the documentation of the sensor used in Myo Armband.

any info from the Team? Maybe you guys should write a document on Myo's hardware

The EMG data is unitless, and represents “activation”

Well that cant be entirely true… you must have converted raw voltages to 8 bit values somehow.. Can you provide the conversion?

I think its mV. If I'm not mistaken.

May I know, the EMG data extract from Myo have been filtered or not? or the data still mixed with noise?
