According to the findings of Bahr, Thorborg & Ekstrand (2015), the majority of Champions League football teams failed to implement adequate and evidence-based hamstring injury prevention measures. Even though injury prevention protocols are important, we believe that they can be successful only in case if they are based on objective diagnostics of the initial muscle status. Tensiomyography enables medical staff and S&C coaches to get an objective insight into the individual muscle function and compare lateral as well as functional symmetries. On the basis of this information, injury prevention protocols are then developed on an individual level. Execution of tensiomyographic measurements is fast, this is why it is an effective tool for regular screening of larger population such as, for example, a football team.
