Rauno Simola, an avid TMG user, has recently published an interesting article on tensiomyography’s reliability and prediction of changes in muscle force in the Sports Technology Journal. The study involved the analysis of the inter-day reliability of TMG muscle mechanical properties based on the amplitude of the muscle belly radial deformation, the time it takes to occur, and its velocity under maximal and submaximal stimuli in the muscles. Furthermore, an additional experiment investigated whether changes in maximal voluntary isometric contraction (MVIC) could be predicted based on changes in TMG properties following 24 hours after different squat training protocols. The results proved that TMG is a reliable method to assess muscle mechanical properties, particularly within maximal stimuli, and can be used for the prediction of changes in MVIC following heavy eccentric strength exercises.
