Introduction: Normative data for jitter parameters using a disposable concentric needle have been described in a few studies. Methods: Jitter, expressed as the mean consecutive difference (MCD), was measured in the frontalis muscle in 20 subjects by voluntary contraction. Results: Mean MCD for individual studies (20, Gaussian), all potentials (400, non-Gaussian), and 18th highest value (20, Gaussian) were 19.9 +/- 2.9 s, 19.9 +/- 6.6 s, and 26.9 +/- 4.4 s, respectively. Conclusion: The suggested upper normal limit for mean MCD is 26 s and for outliers is 36 s.
