    THE MUSCLES – ”THE ENGINE”

    Muscles produce the force and movement output of the performance.

    MUSCLE LOAD represents the level of muscle work during the exercise. Thus, it gives direct and instant information about the level of loading and perfomance of the working muscles.


    THE HEART – ”THE FUEL PUMP”

    Heart-circulatory system delivers oxygen and nutrients to the organs and carry out the metabolic waste.

    HEART RATE gives you implicit information about the overall loading level and energy consumption of the whole body.

    Movescount
  • Innovative technology

    The technology and functionality of the Mbody is based on the measurement of electrical activity of the muscles (EMG, electromyography). Mbody is the first product ever that utilizes this technology in sports performance analysis in real-time - regardless of the environment or the type of sports.

    The Mbody technology is developed by Myontec Ltd, Finland, for high-end-performance usage. It has been used by the elite athletes and coaches around the world.

  • New dimension in performance

    Mbody provides detailed infromation on muscle performance in real time and in any training environments. Knowing your muscles redirects training towards achieving personal best.

    Improve your techniques, muscular balance and efficiency, and have better control on your training intensity.

  • Simple gauges - detailed data

    Balance

    During unidirectional cyclic exercises, like running, the movement should occur as evenly balaned as possible. To master your performance, follow your Balance. Excessive muscular loading, stress, strain or technical problems may cause balance deviations. These deviations combined with fatigue may expose to injuries.

    Read more at KnowYourMuscles.com.

    Muscle Load

    Use Muscle Load gauge, f.ex., for optimizing power and techniques in cycling. Follow loading level against the route profile or speed. While clibing or riding out of saddle, especially during sprints, muscles are often stressed extensively. Follow the Muscle load level and its recovery.

    Follow the warm-up: after physiological warming up and enhanced neuromuscular control the muscle load decreases back to your base level. Previous heavy exercises and training periods can be usually detected as higher Muscle Load level at the beginning of the exercise.

    See more at: KnowYourMuscles.com.

    Quadriceps/Hamstrings Ratio

    The thumb rule is that the more you use your hamstrings the better runner you are. However, Quads/Hams Ratio more or less individually dependent. Thus, concentrate more on the alteration of the Q/H Ratio. In case the muscular loading shifts more on quadriceps it is usually due to technical deficiencies (hip is not extended, heel strike, prolonged work-phase especially on Quads) and/or fatigue.

    For centuries, sport related training has benefited from instruments that measure heart activity and electric activity of the heart muscle (EKG). Instead, the measuring of the activity of the skeletal muscles (EMG) has been somewhat difficult and sensitive to interferences and therefore rarely utilized in practical training situations. Now this is possible.

    With Mbody product, the activity and the occurring changes in muscles that work during sport performance can be recorded and examined almost the same way as with an heart rate monitor. The system can expose a possible unbalance in muscle activity, and it can be used to monitor e.g. warm-up and fatigue changes during acute exercise and to follow muscle recruiting changes as a result of a training period in several muscle groups simultaneously.

    Mbody is an excellent tool for both the athlete and the trainer who in addition to performance ability wants to explore what happens in muscles during training and in competition situations and how and which muscles are strained in sport performances. I recommend to explore and experiment as there is now available a totally new dimension for the development of training methods and periods.

    Mbody is a new and innovative training tool. The shorts measure your muscle activity directly on the skin and give you direct information on how muscles work. This gives you more detailed information about the exercise. This can be also used for post-operative training after injury or operation by observing differences between right and left side. With Mbody you can follow your muscle loading directly on your mobile, or analyze your exercise more closely on your PC. This is why Mbody is an excellent tool for both the athlete and the coach.

    Per Lundstam
    Red Bull High Performance Manager

    The Myontec technology with inside look on the muscle activity gives scientists and coaches a great picture of the muscular mechanical processes happening in real time during physiological stress.

    This enables staff to investigate physiological mechanisms to a much higher degree and improves the understanding of training and competition at a higher rate than the more traditional analytical methodologies.

    During long endurance-type of performances, such as triathlon, it is imperative to proceed at right pace and as efficiently as possible. Mbody gives relevant new information on running and cycling in triathlon performance. During cycling, it is easy to monitor your techniques comprehensively. With Mbody I can focus on optimizing the power and muscle loading, whilst following and improving my riding position and techniques. During transition exercises, I can follow when I'll get my running on after cycling. It is also possible to detect muscular level signs for fatigue.

    Mbody offers me as a triathlonist, a whole new perspective on my performance in real training situations.”

    This clever Finnish tech connects some very ‘smart’ clothing (specifically at the moment, shorts) to a portable device, to deliver detailed (and we mean detailed) information on the state of your body during exercise. The data includes the condition of various muscle groups, so you can tell whether you’re running properly or risking injury. Very cool!
