In Kessler foundation it’s all about staying on the cutting edge! Our latest invention MC method represents huge potential for future research as it allows monitoring of force production in muscles and/or tendons during voluntary movement.  Kessler foundation is planning to measure the force generated by the Rectus Femoris muscle, in healthy adults, during a simple stepping movement. We can’t wait to see the results.

Kessler Foundation strives to improve the lives of people with physical and cognitive disabilities caused by stroke, multiple sclerosis, brain and spinal cord injury, and other chronic neurologic and musculoskeletal conditions. Over the past decade, Kessler Foundation has invested almost $50 million in the work of its researchers, who develop ways to help people with disabilities overcome obstacles, and lead full and productive lives in their communities.

TMG S1 is becoming popular assessment tool for specific studies running by Korean research institutions. Tensiomyography was presented during Korean sport congress where YeongNam University already presented a poster “The effect of muscle tension under compression wear”.  We are looking forward to get more studies where Tensiomyography will be used.

The latest influential research institution in Korea using Tensiomyography is Woosong University. They started with a lot of enthusiasm which makes Korea one of the fastest growing research market for Tensiomyography.

AEK ATHENS FC is one of the best football clubs in Greek Super league. With the help of the TMG S1 diagnostic system, the management aims to optimize rehabilitation of its players and improve injury prevention protocols. The best of luck!

We are proud to announce that Teikyo University implemented two TMG S1 systems in their research projects. Teikyo University is just the last in the line of prestigious research institutions in Japan using Tensiomyography for their research.

Starting with faculties of Economics and Liberal Arts 1962, Teikyo University has been developing as a solid comprehensive university, offering a wide range of additional programs including School of medicine.

This study showed that while muscle tone increased after strength training, relevant changes in muscle tone could not be detected after stretching or FR. As a benefit for practical FR applications, it might be concluded that single bouts of FR are not effectual in significantly affecting muscle tone.

This study concludes that faster athletes performed better in strength-power tests, in both loaded and unloaded conditions, as confirmed by the strong correlations observed between speed and power measures. Lastly, the Vc also showed a marked selective influence on sprint and power capacities. These findings reinforce the notion that maximum running speed is a very complex physical capacity, which should be assessed and trained using several methods and training strategies.

As our schedules are filling fast, we invite you to inform us about your visit on info@tmg.si in order to ensure full attention of our experts.

The findings in this study demonstrate that a skin-surface muscle mechanomyography sensor is an accurate proxy for electrically-evoked muscle contraction torques when directly measured during isometric dynamometry in individuals with SCI. The novel application of the MC sensor during FES-evoked muscle contractions suggested its possible application for real-world tasks (e.g., prolonged sit-to-stand, stepping,) where muscle forces during fatiguing activities cannot be directly measured.
