Science and Technology

As a pioneer in using accelerometers to capture biomechanics from athletes in the field, Myotest brings a deep understanding and years of experience in motion analysis and interpretation to the digital market.

Many patents were filled during our time working with professional athletes and coaches. The technology has been used over the last decade in many research projects, validations and studies for a variety of sport and medical applications.

The lab on your wrist

Today, wearables and smartphones are everywhere, and the data they capture is invaluable to improving your health and athletic performance.
