Myontec wearable EMG technology allows greater opportunity to collect muscle excitation information in externally-valid, field-based environments, such as normal training situations. Bath University, one of the best-ranked universities in the UK, publishes validation study of Myontec Mbody technology in March: Textile Electrodes Embedded in Clothing: A Practical Alternative to Traditional Surface Electromyography when Assessing Muscle Excitation during Functional Movements

The findings were strengthening the use of Myontec Mbody instead of traditional EMG products.

• Excitation lengths tend to be longer when collected using textile electrodes compared with traditional surface electrodes
• Reproducibility is similar across the two systems
• Textile EMG electrodes can provide a practical alternative to traditional surface EMG, which may allow greater opportunity to collect muscle excitation information in externally-valid, field-based environments, such as normal training situations

The study also complements the previous validation articles, like the first one already from 2007 made in University of Jyväskylä.
