Spanish term or phrase: envolvente (muscle tone/EMG- medical)
The context, with the difficult term in CAPITALS

“La actividad muscular se caracteriza en función de la amplitud de la señal de EMG. Esta señal presenta un rango de amplitudes y frecuencias muy amplio, y por ello habitualmente se trabaja únicamente con su ENVOLVENTE. Para calcular la amplitud de la señal de EMG original, se opta por aproximarla mediante la amplitud de la señal diferencia entre sus ENVOLVENTES superior e inferior.”

The choice of the author is to work with the ENVOLVENTES - this implies a reduction of the 'ground covered' so to speak. 'Surroundings' or similar is not satisfactory, but I see that 'envolver' can mean 'imply'. Can anybody help me with this?

Explanation:
Ailish: I would translate our text as:

"This signal presents a very wide range of frequencies and amplitudes, and this is why usually only its ENVELOPE is considered".

"Envolvente" es un término poco feliz en español (a falta de otro mejor) para referirse al contorno o envoltorio de la onda de EMG, en el cual se pueden distinguir un borde superior y otro inferior. La diferencia entre ambos da la amplitud de la señal.
