This symposium, Evidence-based Practice in Sport: The Case for Tensiomyography (TMG), is a unique event tailored for sport- and health-professionals and practitioners who might work with athletes or the general public and who may or may not use TMG. Several key international speakers – representing both research and clinical backgrounds – have been invited to […]
Using Tensiomyography to Assess Changes in Knee Muscle Contraction Properties After Concentric and Eccentric Fatiguing Muscle Actions
A new scientific publication paper shows that the contraction velocity, assessed with tensiomyography (TMG), was the parameter which showed differences between time by muscle by muscle activation after fatiguing leg extension sets. Abstract: The purposes of this study were to analyze the effects of different types of muscle contraction (concentric and eccentric) on the passive […]
Scientific Publication: Tensiomyographical responsiveness to peripheral fatigue in quadriceps femoris
We are proud to share the latest Tensiomyography (TMG) publication with you. Thirty-nine recreational athletes participated and TMG parameters of QF bellies and maximal voluntary isometric contraction (MVIC) were measured before and after a fatigue protocol. The authors believe that Tensiomyography (TMG), has emerged as a technique that can assess the presence of peripheral fatigue […]
New Tensiomyography publication: A Maximal Incremental Test in Cyclists Causes Greater Peripheral Fatigue in Biceps Femoris.
Forty-eight volunteers’ well-trained male cyclists were evaluated during the competition season within a recovery microcycle. Tensiomyography was used before and after performing an incremental test until exhaustion in cycle ergometer to measure the radial muscle belly displacement of the vastus lateralis (VL), rectus femoris (RF), and biceps femoris (BF) on the dominant leg. Maximum radial […]
Quantitative assessment of Muscle stiffness using TENSIOMYOGRAPHY before and after Injection of Botulinum toxin Type A in Patients after Stroke
Background: There have been still few objective outcome measures regarding the effect of botulinum toxin type A treatment. Tensiomyography (TMG) is used as a device that can non-invasively evaluate skeletal muscle, however, no reports have been found that the effects of botulinum toxin type A treatment have been evaluated by the characteristics of muscle contraction […]
We’re proud to announce that Tensiomyography has been used in over 160 scientific publications! The first article was published in 1997 by professor Valenčič from the University of Ljubljana. Tensiomyography as a method which precisely measures the speed of muscle contraction and muscle stiffness, has been applied in the fields of Anatomy, Anthropology, Biochemistry, Biology, […]
Tensiomyography Derived Parameters Reflect Skeletal Muscle Architectural Adaptations Following 6-Weeks of Lower Body Resistance Training
Measurement of muscle specific contractile properties in response to resistance training (RT) can provide practitioners valuable information regarding physiological status of individuals. Field based measurements of such contractile properties within specific muscle groups, could be beneficial when monitoring efficacy of training or rehabilitation interventions. Tensiomyography (TMG) quantifies contractile properties of individual muscles via an electrically […]
Neuromuscular characteristic of Biceps Femoris muscle in the top Serbian soccer players measured by Tensiomyography method: quantitative model The study was performed on 54 healthy top-level soccer players. The main aim of this study was to define the quantitative neuromuscular characteristics of Biceps Femoris muscle (BF) as the knee joint flexor, i.e. the major synergist […]
Article was published in Journal of Applied Physiology and it’s about using Tensiomyography to detect changes in muscles as a consequence after lack of movement. We are leaving in the world facing aging of the population and anti-aging research are gaining importance. This article demonstrate how useful can be the information provided by Tensiomyography.
