Effectively reducing power line interference is always an important issue in electromyography (EMG) signal recordings and analysis. In this study, four commonly used de-noising methods, including digital notch, LMS based adaptive filter, Kalman filter and S transform, which may be suitable for the reduction of power line interference in real-time EMG recordings, were chosen and their performance in reducing the power line interference from EMG signal recordings were quantitatively analyzed and compared. The pilot results of this study showed that Kalman filter presented the best whole performance in attenuating power line interference from EMG signals and S transform de-noising method illustrated the best performance when the power line interference was severe.
