If (t,x) is your time and signal.
dt = diff(t) ;
dx = diff(x) ;
slope = dx./dt ;
slope_sign = sign(slop) ;

dear
my data signal is 30000x4
time is 1x30000
its show error : Matrix dimensions must agree.

Use the gradient function to produce results that are the same sizes as your data, not diff.
If ‘EMG’ is your (30000x4) signal matrix, the derivative (‘dEMG’) is:
[~,dEMG] = gradient(EMG);
Note that taking the derivative of a a ‘real world’ signal will significantly amplify the noise. It would be best for you to use a lowpass filter on your EMG signal matrix first, to eliminate high-frequency noise. If you have R2018a or later, use the lowpass function (or bandpass if you also want to eliminate d-c offset and low-frequency baseline drift). Otherwise, efficient filters are not difficult to design and implement in MATLAB.
