Myontec Success Story - Case Kuortane Olympic Training Center

  1. 1. Myontec Mbody Success Story Case Kuortane Olympic Training Center
  2. 2. Kuortane Olympic Training Center, a member of Association of Sport Performance Centres (ASPC), is a unique, multisport and highly international coaching and training center, located in Kuortane, Finland. It’s principal aim is to serve and develop competitive sports internationally at the highest level and offer top conditions for both individual athletes and teams. Training Center’s Testing Lab is utilizing the Mbody system with high-level expertise while working in close collaboration with Myontec to develop the sports performance analysis even further.” MBODY, WORLD`S FIRST MUSCLE ACTIVITY SENSING EMG- WEARABLE SUCCESS STORY “There are many excellent devices to measure heart rate and vascular functions. However, there hasn’t been any applicable, easy to use and reliable system to measure muscle activity, especially in field and during the most strenuous activities.” Mr. Tapio Korjus, Director of Kuortane Olympic Training Centre, Olympic gold medalist in Javelin (Seoul 1988), Javelin coach, Vice president of ASPC for Europe. Not until today. Myontec`s Mbody is an excellent addition for modern sports coaching. Measuring muscle activity gives huge value to everyday analysis, coaching and training; coach and athlete can get crucial information about muscle contraction levels, intensity and recovery during the exercise.”
  3. 3. ”One of the most important things in measuring muscles, their level of contraction and timing, is improvement in movement coordination and movement patterns. In many sports there are very complex technical series of movements. With this method we can verify the differences between right and wrong techniques and help the athlete to learn the right technique faster than before. EMG measurement plays a significant role in improving the athlete`s technique”, says Tapio Korjus. MBODY IS USED AS A PART OF WIDER TESTING PLATFORM TO: Detect hidden problems, deviations & imbalances Monitor and follow-up athletes’ performance: efficiency, thresholds, maximal capacity etc. Optimize techniques with matching activation-profiles & recruitment-ability Find targeted, sport- specific and supportive exercises
  4. 4. MBODY IN USE AT KUORTANE OLYMPIC TRAINING CENTER Myontec interwiewed Merja Hoffren-Mikkola, a sports performance testing specialist in Sport Biomechanics, at Kuortane Olympic Training Center Testing Lab. What are you using Mbody Shorts for today? “At Kuortane Olympic Training Center´s Testing and Consulting Centre we have been using Mbody in small quantities of athletes for 4 years now. Since the fall of 2014 usage of Mbody has increased substantially and the coverage has expanded to wider range of sports with the development of Muscle Monitor software and new MShorts textile. In what sports have you used / utilized Mbody? “We have been using Mbody with national and international level athletes and potential young athletes in several sports disciplines, f.ex., in sprint running, hurdles, endurance running, javelin, ice hockey and speed skating. “ Hoffren-Mikkola, Sports performance testing specialist in Sport Biomechanist at the Kuortane Olympic Training Center Testing Lab.
  5. 5. USE CASES Case 1 Middle-distance runner Picture 2. Case ice-hockey player, problem detection, static-hold-squat. On the left: an athlete with normal muscle activation profile. An athlete on the right: core and pelvic stability problem compensated by right hamstrings (purple line: excessive hamstring activity). The same phenomenon was present also during dynamic movements / drills. Case 2 Ice-hockey goalie Support the training and recovery Optimize the sports- & individual-specific techniques and skills Monitor & enhance the performance along with the progression follow-up Control both the single exercise and whole training periodization Picture 1. Case middle-distance runner, performance analysis with follow-up. The athlete was not able to perform his/her routine sport-specific running exercises prior to the first test (5.12.). After normal training (5.1.), better running efficiency with enhanced neuromuscular-control is seen at submaximal level as lower activity. Hence, also increased muscle recruitment ability with increased capacity at higher speeds. “THE MBODY SYSTEM CAN BE USED IN ALL SPORTS THROUGHOUT THE COACHING AND TRAINING PROCESESS”
  6. 6. THE MYONTEC TEAM “ ” The Myontec solution (Mbody) incorporates intelligent clothing with wireless connectivity and mobile interfaces. This short - packed with wearable technology such as built-in textile sensors - measures activity of your muscle groups, Quadriceps and Hamstrings on both legs. The data can be followed on your mobile phone or pad, both during and after your exercise. “ ” Behind the Finnish company Myontec there is an international and versatile team of professionals who have gained success in Olympic level sports, and in the field of software engineering, university and research.
  7. 7. Myontec is an innovator. It is an entrepreneurial company, taking the invention of muscle measurement to marketable products and applications.
