In muscle diagnostics, TMG100 tensiomyography has been found by many experts to be complementary to other diagnostic methods such as MRI, diagnostic ultrasound and isokinetic testing. In more clinical settings experts are now using TMG100 tensiomyography to monitor the instant effects of therapy on muscle function in terms of activation and local fatigue levels, in order to determine precise and safe rehab training loads. One such example is the complementary use of TMG100 tensiomyography and anti-gravity treadmills. The latter are increasingly used in state-of-the-art rehab centers and are applied in orthopedic and neurologic rehab, sports performance, geriatric and bariatric therapy. The ability to lower the load of ones body weight offers the advantage of being able to train longer, safer and increase motor learning efficiency. However therapists still require precise and immediate information on how exercise is affecting muscle function in order to determine the most appropriate volume and intensity of exercise, which includes number of sets, repetitions and cycling training schedules, to ensure efficient and effective therapy. TMG100 tensiomyography’s ability to accurately and quickly monitor local muscle fatigue in specific muscles in the lower extremeties assists therapists in determining the exact dose of exercise which remains effective. Knowing how specific muscles functionally react to the anti-gravity treadmill training helps determine the optimal length of training, speed or intensity and amount of body weight that can be allowed for safe and effective rehab training.
