After successfully completing SensMotion, an Eurostars R&D project, we are glad to inform you that our second Eurostars project has been approved. Once more, our partner will be the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM).
The project will be focused on the development of a prototype for simple, selective, non-invasive and fast functional diagnostics of skeletal muscles by simultaneously using M-Wave and Tensiomyography. The muscle performance index, amount of evoked motor units and their ability to contract will be the main parameters, derived from both origins, used in different aspects of muscle diagnostics for muscle pathologies, occupational activities, age-related changes and physiology-related adaptations.
Musculoskeletal disorders affect more than 1.7 billion people worldwide and this number is rapidly increasing due to the aging population. Existing diagnostic methods lack accessibility, are expensive and time-consuming. The technology we propose for fast functional diagnostics of muscle pathologies is cost-effective, fast, portable, non-invasive and selective. It has a high potential to become the golden standard for functional muscle diagnostics and a complement to existing diagnostic imaging methods.
The project will last for 30 months and we are proud to have such a renowned partner as CSEM.
