The application of Myoton technology provides invaluable information on the condition of superficial skeletal muscles, tendons and other soft tissues in several fields of medicine and sports.
The relevance of biomechanical properties in determining the functional state of muscles has only recently been more clearly understood. Myoton allows for a better understanding of how Tone, Stiffness and Elasticity are related to muscle health and physical condition.
This new set of information facilitates objective assessment of progression and efficacy of various factors, such as medical interventions, sports exercise, symmetry, injuries and ageing. Potentially, Myoton technology could help detect musculoskeletal disorders, diseases or risk of injury at an early stage so that preventive measures and appropriate medical treatment could be provided well in time.
Existing scientific literature on reliability, validity and practicality can be found under the publications section.
