Alain Gandiaga is the trainer of the Sociedad Deportiva Eibar and we interviewed him so that he could give us his testimony about Mbody from Myontec.

Q. What use does the medical service of the Sociedad Deportiva Eibar give to Mbody of Myontec?

A. Mbody trousers of Myontec is a tool that if fully integrated into the day to day of the first team. It is used both to assess the movement of the players and to track the recovery of the correct pattern.

In professional football, we are obliged to be up to date with innovation and training control. Mbody from Myontec gives us what we have been looking for, that are objective data about what happens in the training with the player.

It is a tool that is used in all the injured players. An evaluation of the movement is made to all the players to have their footprint and to know what pattern we have to return to.

Q. What does Mbody mainly offer you?

A. Nowadays, rehabilitation, prevention and recovey are key in performance. Electromyography is a technology that we already knew, but it was quite static and not very applicable to football. And this Myontec product gives us the possibility to see what is happening in the locomotor system of the players in real time. And make the corrections we consider with security.

It is a very innovative product because allows the player to continue training like he does in his day to day without modifying his gestures. Being able to do this with a device that measures so accurately what is happening is an important innovation for us.

Q. In relation with injuries, how does Mbody help you?

A. Each injury leaves a consequence, modifying the pattern of movement of the player. We are interested in the recuperation of the players’ correct pattern and Myontec is showing us this.

 

When there has been an injury that causes one side of the body to be used more than the other (because the injured one participates less), with Mbody we can see how the injured side gains confidence and both sides’ patterns equalize, thus recovering its correct pattern.
