Science

Myovolt is a world-leading product, which I have been fortunate to directly witness its impact. As an independent scientific researcher I have conducted clinical studies that have been published in top ranked international journals to confirm its significance that muscle soreness is reduced after strenuous exercise and as a warm-up modality muscular power is enhanced.

Myovolt is the result of many years of research and development by our team of Wearable Technology experts who have a track record in developing performance enhancing tech for elite and Olympic athletes. We used our expertise in garment integrated electronics to invent ‘Wearable Vibration Therapy’ a new and innovative way to effectively target therapeutic vibration frequencies on to the body. 

Myovolt employs Localised Vibration Therapy (LVT), a technique in which vibration is directed at specific muscle groups or soft tissue areas. This technique has a massaging effect to stimulate Nitric Oxide production, which then enhances circulation and blood flow.  LVT also acts similarly to physical stretching, so it's a good option for warming up and relaxing the muscles before or after training. It is often used in sports clinics to relieve tension and strains in over worked muscles. It has also been used effectively to improve muscle performance in athletes. 

Vibration Therapy is supported by a wide body of research in sports science and medical fields with physiological benefits including promoting circulation, boosting muscle power, relaxing muscles or ligaments, reducing pain and alleviating Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS). Vibration Therapy has also been used to improve bone density, reduce the risk of fractures and enhance muscle strength in astronauts returning from space. Medical research also supports LVT as an effective therapy for muscle pain and other circulatory medical conditions.

 

At Myovolt our aim is to use science to create cutting edge wearable tech that makes a difference to how you feel. Myovolt is backed up by independent clinical studies published in international peer reviewed journals. Below you can find links to these studies along with other key papers investigating the biological and medical response of the human body to Vibration Therapy.
