Intermittent Pneumatic Compression and Cold Water Immersion Effects on Physiological and Perceptual Recovery During Multi-Sports International Championship

Congested-fixture championships are common during the selection of the athletes and teams participating in the Olympic Games. Throughout these tournaments, it is fundamental to perform optimally, rest well, and recover between competitions. This study aimed to a) explore the effectiveness of the use of intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) and cold water immersion (CWI) to recover […]

Mechanical and Contractile Properties of Knee Joint Muscles Measured by the Method of Tensiomyography in Differently Trained Men and Women

The aim of this study was to investigate the differences in mechanical and contractile properties of knee joint flexor and extensor muscles between differently trained men and women, using tensiomyography (TMG). The sample consisted of 159 subjects (84 men and 75 women), who were assigned to one of 5 groups according to the following levels […]

Sex-Based Differences in Tensiomyography as Assessed in the Lower Erector Spinae of Healthy Participants

An Observational Study: Sex-based differences in muscle stiffness and contractile characteristics could be observed by TENSIOMYOGRAPHY (TMG) on LES muscles in healthy individuals at rest. The data suggest that these disparities are not exclusively attributable to anthropometric measures but may be linked to intrinsic sex-based differences in skeletal muscle characteristics. They recommend implementing TENSIOMYOGRAPHY (TMG) […]

Changes in Muscle Contractile Properties after Cold- or Warm-Water Immersion Using Tensiomyography.

A Cross-Over Randomised Trial. Abstract Muscle contractile properties in clinical practice are often measured using either subjective scales or high-cost, inaccessible equipment. In this randomised cross-over study, we aimed to explore the use of tensiomyography (TMG) to assess changes in muscle contractile properties after cold- and warm-water immersion. The muscle contractile properties of the biceps […]

Crossover effects of ultrasound-guided percutaneous neuromodulation on contralateral hamstring flexibility

Background Crossover effects refer to the responses of a non-exercised contralateral limb. There is evidence of this effect, as it relates to muscle fatigue, strength, and stretch, but not as it relates to neuromodulation. Objectives To compare the crossover effects of percutaneous neuromodulation (PNM) on hip range of motion (ROM), observed in a straight leg […]

A group of researchers from Spain published an important Tensiomyography publication in Nature Scientific Reports

The aim was to determine the effect of changing pulse duration and electrode size on muscle contractile properties. The authors suggested stimulus pulse duration of 1ms together with a 5 Ă— 5cm electrode is necessary to reach a reliable and reproducible assessment. This finding concludes that the Tensiomyography measuring protocol is optimal.   Read more […]

Early clinical and neuromuscular properties in patients with normal or sub-normal subjective knee function after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction

We are happy to receive new Tensiomyography publication, where TMG was used together with Isokinetic system on 60 patients with ACL reconstructions. Both systems were compliant and each system provided different type of useful information to the researchers. Tensiomyography revealed higher biceps femoris as well as semitendinosus and semimembranosus radial displacement values on the operated […]

TENSIOMYOGRAPHY study: Evolution of contractile properties of the lower limb muscles throughout a season in elite futsal players

Futsal is a team sport involving intermittent technical actions of high intensity, and high physical (strength) and muscular demands. In this regard, the Tensiomyography (TMG) is a useful and non-invasive tool for the monitoring and assessment of the muscle’s contractile capacity. This study aimed to analyze the changes in the contractile properties produced during the […]

New publication – Muscle-specific changes of lower extremities in the early period after total knee arthroplasty: Insight from tensiomyography

Abstract: This study aimed to evaluate changes in i) muscle contractile properties of both lower extremities by using tensiomyography (TMG); ii) patients’ physical function, and iii) electromechanical efficiency (EME) of the gastrocnemius medialis muscle in total knee arthroplasty (TKA)patients from before to one-month after TKA. Methods: Twenty-six patients scheduled for TKA were included. Results: The […]
