Program description

Alma Mater Europaea –ECM is organising a TMG summer school in cooperation with the Science and Research Center Koper (SRCK) and the company TMG-BMC d.o.o. This summer school is aimed at students, professionals and researchers from the areas of physiotherapy, health and medicine, sports, kinesiology and those who deal with sports diagnostics, optimisation of training and rehabiliation.

Tensiomiography (TMG) is a diagnostic method that assesses electric stimulus of contractile properties of skeletal muscles that serves as the basis for planing training, rehabilitation and orientation of the youth (Šimunič Boštjan).

Participants of the summer school will be introduced to the usage of the TMG system and other complementary tools and devices, such as Tanita scales for analysing body composition, powerbreath respirator, INDIBA active for active cell therapy and Bioresonance scanner for scanning the whole organism.

The TMG summer school is meant for students close to the graduation and post-graduate students, especially from the field of physiotherapy, since participation also counts toward obtaining ECTS points. The following applies:

- undergraduate students who have finished Bachelor degree will obtain 1 ECTS point in addition to the summer school certificate,
- graduate students with finished Master degree will obtain 2 ECTS points in addition to the summer school certificate,
- in case the student wishes to obtain 5 ECTS points, additional seminar paper must be written on one of the topics of the summer school (15 pages, app. 3,500 words) within 30 days after completion of the Summer school. 

»The TMG-BMC company deals with development and commercialisation of the tensiomiography method and has been cooperating with Alma Mater Europaea – ECM, one of the leading research and educational institutions in the area of physiotherapy in Slovenia, in the field of research for quite a while. We would like to upgrade this partnership also to the educational level, training and certifying physiotherapists with the TMG method, because of the knowledge and experience of the AMEU faculty, which is an optimal combination at using the TMG method in sports diagnostics and physiotherapy
