MyoQuip is a new entrant to the design and manufacture of 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 movements and strength requirements specific to a particular sport.
Working in close collaboration with sports scientists and engineers, MyoQuip has already invented and developed four fundamentally unique machines scheduled for release to the market over the next several months.
The first of these is 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 maul.
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 has now been incorporated in the commercially released version of the ScrumTruk.
