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.



Many medical areas have been identified in which Myoton technology adds value by assessing muscle abnormalities and treatment efficacy.


Studies in various sports-related fields indicate that Myoton is a useful tool for monitoring the physical condition of muscles in the training and recovery process.

Relevant muscles

Many superficial muscles, tendons and other soft tissues can be measured with Myoton. The list below provides the most relevant ones which are associated with sports performance, injuries or medical conditions, and are accessible with Myoton.

Need for Muscle Measurements

Myoton leads the way in the non-invasive and cost-effective assessment of soft biological tissues consistent with the principles of preventative and evidence-based.

Measurement of tone and biomechanical properties is essential for the assessment of muscle conditioning and relaxation. Assessment of relaxation is valuable in neurological and pain disorders, decreased range of motion, muscle injury, musculoskeletal diseases and aging.

Myoton parameters within an optimum range provide an excellent indication of tissue’s health condition!
