    About Athos
    Since our incorporation in 2012, Athos has been translating EMG into a simple and powerful training system using our wearable technology. From cueing muscle activations, evaluating movement progressions, and monitoring the accumulation of stress on your muscles throughout training, our system will help athletes reach their highest potential. By giving athletes and coaches this unprecedented insight into muscle performance in any setting, they can get a better understanding of the internal muscular loads being generated within the body during any movements or postures.
