We are proud to announce 23 scientific publications in 2017! Congratulations to all the authors and co-authors! We never had so many publications published in a year.
We believe Tensiomyography is assessment tool to use if you are aiming for good scientific impact. In order to gain scientific impact your publication needs to reach good relationship between innovation and acceptance and Tensiomyography is offering exactly this. 100 TMG publications are a guaranty for acceptance but on the other side 100 TMG publications is still a low figure and you have huge amount of space to me innovative.
We are entering 2018 with high expectations that this number of annual publications will be exceeded once again.
We have reached the first milestone in our collaboration with Wolters Kluwer, new web page for
Advances in Skeletal Muscle Function Assessment, a publication of International Society of Tensiomyography. Of course this is just a start!

Alexander Franz from University Hospital Duesseldorf and his colleagues published an article “Ischemic Preconditioning Blunts Muscle Damage Responses Induced by Eccentric Exercise” in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise journal published by American College of Sports Medicine.
Tensiomyography has proven once more to be sensitive enough to ne used in similar studies.

Jorge López-Fernández from University of Castilla-La Mancha and his colleagues published an article “Neuromuscular responses and physiological patterns during a soccer simulation protocol. Artificial turf versus natural grass”
They concluded playing on artificial turf should cause similar neuromuscular responses to natural grass.
This is another new possible application for Tensiomyography

Loturco Irineu from Nucleus of High Performance is Sport Sao Paolo and his colleagues published the article “Predictive Factors Of Elite Sprint Performance: Influences Of Muscle Mechanical Properties
And Functional Parameters” in the Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research.
In conclusion, it was found 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 26 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.

Bostjan Simunic from Institute for Kinesiology Research Koper and his colleagues published a study “Tensiomyographic assessment of muscle contractile properties in 9 to 14 year old children” in Training & Testing journal.
“When applying the relationship between proportion of MHC-I and Tc established in adults to children’s TMG data, we found a slow-to-fast transition in the VL between, at least, the ages of 6 to 10 years, when it stabilized to adult proportions. Regular participation in sports was associated with a faster BF, but not in the VL. Our data represents a first non-invasive indication of the developmental changes in muscle fiber type composition in children.”
Another strong application for Tensiomyography is monitoring of child development.

Martín-Rodríguez from College of Graduates in Physical Education of the Canary Islands and his colegues published “Reliability and Measurement Error of Tensiomyography to Assess Mechanical Muscle Function: A Systematic Review” in Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.
The conclusion tells it all:
“In conclusion, this study indicates that 3 of the TMG parameters (Dm, Td, and Tc) are highly reliable, whereas ½ Tr demonstrate insufficient reliability, and thus should not be used in future studies”

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.
