For individuals suffering from muscle strain on their elbows due to work and technology, a new technology startup has launched an elbow behavior-changing technology -- the MLI Elbow. The name 'MLI' is an abbreviation of the word "muscle load index" and helps users modify their movements to reduce pain and muscle strain.
The technology is able to ensure that repetitive strain injuries including carpal tunnel syndrome, mouse arm, and tennis elbow can be avoided. The device targets the pain that is located on the outside of the elbow using a small elbow sleeve. The sleeve contains wires, batteries, electrodes in addition to a Bluetooth device. Thanks to its smart technology and the corresponding smartphone app, users can evaluate their muscle use and modify their behavior thanks to the alerts and warnings from the app.
