Mechanical Properties of Muscles and Tendons in Asymptomatic Individuals with Generalized Joint Hypermobility

SUMMARY Background. The purpose of the present study was to investigate changes in mechanical properties of muscles and tendons in asymptomatic individuals with generalized joint hypermobility (GJH). Methods. This cross-sectional study was conducted in 126 participants aged 19-40 years. The Beighton score was used to determine whether the participants had GJH. An experienced physiotherapist screened … Continued

Impact of the Location of Myometric Measurement Points on Skeletal Muscle Mechanical Properties Outcomes

SUMMARY Background. The aim of this study was to assess to what extent changing the measure- ment point affected the results of myometric parameters describing muscle mechani- cal properties assessed by a MyotonPRO┬« device in three skeletal muscles: the biceps brachii (BB), tibialis anterior (TA) and rectus femoris (RF). We hypothesised that muscle mechanical properties … Continued
