FaCT Canada signs agreement for the Exclusive Canadian Distribution of the Moxy muscle oxygen saturation monitor.www.moxymonitor.com
Fortiori Design has developed the Moxy Muscle Oxygen Monitor system to measure the oxygen levels of muscles in athletes while they exercise. Its accurate, real time measurements are fundamental to athletic performance. Oxygen is the fuel that drives the muscles, and muscle oxygen levels are constantly changing with exercise intensity.
Once you find your steady state SmO2 level for a given muscle, you can monitor changes to SmO2 levels during your workout in real time. Monitoring the oxygen levels in specific muscles provides a more relevant and scientifically-accurate way to measure your athletic performance.
High-Intensity training is also very hard on muscles. Athletes often train at low intensity levels to allow muscles a period of recovery.
Moxy indicates where you’re at. It produces an accurate picture of the state of each targeted muscle at any given time. With Moxy, athletes have a powerful tool to monitor and adjust training intensity levels needed to optimize performance.
Even if athletes can get pretty close to optimum by occasionally measuring VO2 and heart rate on a metabolic cart or relying on perceived level of exertion, Moxy will provide real-time confidence that their muscles are reaching the proper metabolic state to maximize effectiveness.
Moxy will be available for puchase in June, 2013.
