|MyoQuip designs and manufactures innovative machines to build muscular
strength. We are based in Sydney, Australia. At present,
machines purchased by overseas buyers are sold and
shipped directly by us. We are now in the process of
setting up a global distribution network to provide
local supply and service support.
Rather than making minor modifications to the
existing array of strength-increasing machines and
equipment, MyoQuip deliberately
focusses on exploiting gaps in the market – identifying
areas where current technology is inadequate or
nonexistent. The most fertile ground for innovation is
in respect of exercises involving complex or multi-joint

The first of these was the ScrumTruk rugby strength builder,
designed specifically to develop the pushing power of
rugby forwards and their ability to withstand the
counter-pushing and compressive forces of the scrum and
A prototype machine was installed at Sydney
University Sport's main gymnasium and tested
over a three-month period by the Sydney University Football
Club's Elite Development Squad of 50
players. Both backs and forwards used the ScrumTruk in their weight training
programs. Extensive feedback from that testing was incorporated in the first commercially version
of the ScrumTruk released in 2004.
Since its release the ScrumTruk has been adopted by the Wallabies; Emirates Western Force; HSBC Waratahs; Queensland Reds; Auckland Blues; Northampton Saints; Sharks; Golden Lions and other leading clubs and schools.
Since then the HipneeFlex and HipneeThrust were launched, with both machines embodying the same QuadTorq technology as the ScrumTruk.
In 200b the new generation Myo range of machines was introduced utilising our patented BBC technology. The MyoThrusta and the MyoTruk replace the HipneeThrust and the ScrumTruk in our range. Myo machines have been delivered to the CA Brumbies; the New South Wales Institute of Sport; Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness; and a number of clubs and schools.
