Participants executed hand-reaching movements for 9 different target directions while monitored by surface EMG device, containing 8 electrodes that were attached to 8 muscles of the shoulder and arm. The direction of the targets were constant between different participants. The folder contains two subfolders, one of healthy individuals and the other of post-stroke individuals. Inside these folders there are 12 folders (Healthy) or 13 folders (post-stroke), each of which corresponds with individual. Each individual's dataset composed of 8 files of Maximum Voluntary Contraction (MVC) of muscles, and 9 or 6 "Target_XXX" files refer of hand-reaching movments for different directions. Each "Target" file contains signals of all the 8 muscles that were also measured by the MVC measurement. Target directions were similar for all individuals from both groups.
