An exhaustive review has been made to filter the studies that have analyzed muscle function though tensiomyography (TMG) with elite or well-trained athletes. The results of this review indicate that the several protocols used in athletes to find the displacement-time curve with greater maximum radial muscle displacement showed a good-excellent reliability.

The tensiomyography (TMG) technique is increasingly used to determine muscle contractile properties in exercise and injury management. The present study investigated the informative value of TMG parameters in correlation with commonly used (creatine kinase, CK; myoglobin, Mb) and novel candidate biomarkers of muscle damage (heart-type fatty acid-binding protein, h-FABP; high-mobility group box 1, HMGB1). Full article

New 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 . Full article
