Computed MyoGraphy (CMG): The revolution in movement and load analysis

Computed MyoGraphy (CMG) is the innovative, validated method for analysing movements and loads on the human musculoskeletal system.

With the CMG method from Predimo GmbH, it is finally possible to make reliable statements about the forces and loads on muscles and joints that occur inside the body.

Unique 3D musculoskeletal load analysis

The functional view of the body

Computed MyoGraphy (CMG) is based on the Myonardo© musculoskeletal computer model developed by Predimo GmbH. Myonardo© visualises the musculoskeletal loads on the human body during movement in 3D and is unique as a dynamic imaging and analysis tool.

Traditional methods

  • Movement analysis:
    External movement parameters
  • Load analysis:
    External forces and force distribution
  • Coordination analysis:
    EMG of superficial muscles

Proven in science & practice

The knowledge gained using Computed MyoGraphy (CMG) represents significant added value for maintaining and improving physical performance and preventing injuries. CMG is used in all areas in which physical movement and the resulting loads that occur in the body play a central role.

Example: Use of precise musculoskeletal load profiles in medical research

Computed MyoGraphy (CMG) is already being used in numerous medical research and development projects in which insights from precise musculoskeletal load profiles are essential.
