What ECG is for the heart TMG is for the muscles >> More than 20 years of innovation The tensiomiography or shorter TMG method was invented in the late 80’s and had since then improved through many prototypes and developed to the stage where commercial application of the method was possible. Although it was initially intended for medical use, the TMG method was also introduced in sports in 1996. In recent years, the development and application of the method has shifted more towards sports. In cooperation with a biologist and one of the renowned athletic trainers in Slovenija, Mr. Srdjan Djordjevič, numerous new ways of use of the TMG method in sports have been developed and tested on top athletes.

>> The TMG measurement consists of four simple steps: 1. A special sensor is placed on the muscle we wish to measure – the sensor is designed to register the muscle contraction. 2. The muscle contraction is induced artificially with an electro stimulator. 3. The contraction of the muscle under isometic conditions results in a muscle belly which forms radial displacement of the sensor rod. Radial displacement is recorded as a function of the elapsed time. 4. The sensor is connected to a computer where a specially designed software plots the radial displacement of the sensor rod against time.

We have been using Tensiomyography (TMG) in the medical department of FC Barcelona for about three years now and we believe that this technique is very useful in the evaluation of the mechanical properties of muscles during training. We use TMG in the recovery process of muscle injuries where it helps us make the right decisions to improve in the regeneration process after muscle injury. These measurements taken during the healing process of muscle injuries help us bring injured muscles to normal state as fast as possible. Dr. Jordi Ardèvol i Cuesta Head of the medical department of FC Barcelona
