Bostjan Simunic from Institute for Kinesiology Research Koper and his colleagues published a study “Tensiomyographic assessment of muscle contractile properties in 9 to 14 year old children” in Training & Testing journal.


Their conclusion:

“When applying the relationship between proportion of MHC-I and Tc established in adults to children’s TMG data, we found a slow-to-fast transition in the VL between, at least, the ages of 6 to 10 years, when it stabilized to adult proportions. Regular participation in sports was associated with a faster BF, but not in the VL. Our data represents a first non-invasive indication of the developmental changes in muscle fiber type composition in children.”


Another strong application for Tensiomyography is monitoring of child development.
