Myon: Manufacturer of wireless EMG systems

The Myon 320 provides state of the art, plug-and-play, real-time wireless EMG with market-leading ultra low latency. The Myon 320S sensors can be used either stand-alone or in parallel with the Myon 320 EMG System.  The 320S measures signals wirelessly from 3 new types of sensors: accelerometers, goniometers and foot switches.  Please see the Myon Product Pages with software options to the left for more details.

We are also able to offer the Motion Lab System MA300 system for customers who wish to use a wired EMG system. For more details visit www.motion-labs.com

Myon wireless EMG used for equine study at Harper Adams University
The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of ground pole work on the equine rectus abdominus (RA) muscle in walk and trot. Eight horses performed four conditions and in each condition the activity in the RA muscle (left and right sides) were measured using Myon wireless surface EMG.  The EMG transmitter was secured in place by a band tied around the horse's abdomen.

Swansea City FC use the AccuPower system as part of their sports science programme.  The Manchester City Academy uses BP400600 force plates with AccuPower software in their indoor running track and in the Academy gym, installed in a custom made lifting platform.
NEW - Body Weight Support
A Body Weight Support (BWS) Harness is now offered with Motekforce Link M-Gait and GRAIL systems. The BWS is designed to facilitate functional gait training of patients gait impairments by enabling dynamic vertical loading during walking on a treadmill. BWS Pro provides active partial body weight support in real-time, software controlled. BWS Light is manually controlled by an up/down remote by the operator.
