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 the biomechanical properties for determining the functional state of muscles has only recently been more clearly understood. For research in the following applications, Myoton opens a whole new field for a better understanding of how Tone, Stiffness or Elasticity are related to muscle health and physical condition.
This new set of information allows objective assessment of the progression and efficacy of various factors, such as medical interventions, sports exercise, symmetry, injuries or ageing. Potentially Myoton technology could help to detect musculoskeletal disorders, diseases or risk of injury at an early stage, so that preventive measures or appropriate medical treatment can be provided well in time.
The existing scientific background about reliability, validity and practicality is listed under the publications section.
