Being aware of the correct execution of certain fitness exercises (e.g. squats) is important for rehabilitation and sports athletes alike. Thus, being able to noninvasively distinguish between contracted and relaxed muscle states is crucial. Measurements using optical systems (movement tracking) or kinetic approaches (muscle circumference) only provide information from the body surface with varying accuracy.
