  • 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
