Six human subjects performed a modified Fitts' test by moving an electromyographic signal between two targets on a computer screen. For five out of six subjects, the results were consistent with Fitts' Law with correlation coefficients ranging between 29% and 72%. The low correlation of the sixth subject (0.6%) may have been due to electrode misplacement and the adoption of a "strategy" in how she performed the task.
