The biceps femoris (BF) muscle has the highest injury incidence. Clinical assessments and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are routinely used to diagnose a given injury. We tested the possibilities of a new technology tensiomyography as a potential screening test (diagnostic and classification purposes) to assess the functional differences between injured and non-injured BF muscles. The results show that tensiomyography has a high predictive ability to discriminate between injured and non-injured BF non-invasively and functionally and that it can be reliably used as a complementary screening test in the diagnosis of BF injuries.
