Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The assessment of Muscle Quality (MQ) is of considerable relevance when investigating changes in muscle, fat and connective tissue composition associated with use or disuse in training and recovery time. Recently, Electrical Impedance Myography (EIM) has been proposed as a non-invasive approach for the assessment of MQ in patients with neuromuscular disease (1) and in patients affected by disuse atrophy (2). The present study aimed at assessing MQ and Fat content (FM) in a population of healthy young football players and evaluate the inter-day repeatability of EIM measures with a novel and portable device.
