  • TMG MEASUREMENT PROTOCOL

    Tensiomyography (TMG) is used for monitoring radial muscle belly displacement under isometric conditions. The displacement sensor is positioned perpendicularly to the tangential plane on the largest area above the muscle belly. The muscle belly displacement (enlargement) during contraction is observed and monitored.

    Experimental setup used to evoke and measure the biceps brachii (BB) isometric twitch contraction responses. The TMG sensor measures muscle radial displacement during twitch contractions induced by short electrical stimuli. The stimulating electrodes are placed directly onto the skin.

    Muscle contraction is elicited by single-twitch electrical stimuli. Two self-adhesive electrodes are placed around the TMG sensor. The anode is placed distally and the cathode proximally, 20-50 mm from the measuring point. Bipolar electrical stimulation consisted of a single DC pulse of 1 ms in duration.

    TMG PARAMETERS

    Delay time (td) as a time between the electrical impulse and 10% of the contraction

    Contraction time (tc) as a time between 10% and 90% of the contraction

    Sustain time (ts) as a time between 50% of the contraction and 50% of the relaxation

    Relaxation time (tr) as a time between 90% and 50% of the relaxation

    Displacement (Dm) as maximal amplitude of the muscle contraction

      • Problem

        You want to know how mechanical properties and behaviour of the muscle-tendon complex (MTC) affects knee movement, and how MTC changes lead to dysfunction.

        Solution

        TMG™ Knee Muscle-Tendon Complex Measurement is a ground-breaking functional diagnostics system that directly measures knee MTC tension development and force transmission in a simple, non-invasive way.

      • How it works?

        • measurement

          TMG™ Knee Muscle-Tendon Complex Measurement accurately measures tension delays and amplitudes of the knee MTC, elicited through twitch-type stimulation at fixed knee angles.

        • analytics

          MTC tension delays and amplitudes describe how elastic energy and mechanical buffering behave during isometric or dynamic knee extension.

        • action

          Using unique TMG™ Knee Muscle-Tendon Complex Measurement data, a better understanding of how changes in MTC affect knee movement and function can be developed.

        • intervention

          To fine-tune diagnostics, rehab and training, TMG™ Knee Muscle-Tendon Complex Measurement is used to assess the effects of any interventions on MTC properties and behaviour.

    “TMG is a promising technology.”

    joernProf. Dr. Joern Rittweger, Manchester Metropolitan University

    “TMG is a promising technology which I want to apply in various research projects in the future. As a non-invasive technique, tensiomyography can be easily applied in most of my studies.”
