“The demand for this technology has been overwhelming,” said Trevor Calero, co-founder at Halo. “There’s a huge need for real-time hydration monitoring, and nothing exists today that can even come close to what we're offering."
Plymouth, Michigan (PRWEB) September 03, 2015
Michigan-based technology startup Halo Wearables is set to release its non-invasive hydration monitoring wearable early 2016.
The device, called the Halo H1, is a wearable that monitors the user’s hydration level using proprietary optical and electrical sensing technology. These sensors track trending interstitial fluid levels in the body, in addition to sodium-potassium ratios in the blood plasma, to determine the user’s state of hydration.
“This technology has far-reaching implications,” said Fred Calero, co-founder and CEO at Halo. “Heat-related illnesses plague multiple sectors, from amateur and professional athletes, to industrial workers in extreme heat conditions. With this technology we now have the ability to provide real-time, actionable insight into the human body that’s never been available before.”
Halo Wearables develops non-invasive sensing technologies for athletics, occupational health & safety, consumer fitness, and military applications. The focus for the H1 will be the team sports market, as well as industrial workplace settings that experience extreme heat conditions like the construction, agriculture, manufacturing, and oil & gas industries.
Throughout the development of the H1, Halo consulted with multiple athletic trainers and sports scientists at the professional and collegiate levels, as well as health & safety leaders at manufacturing companies.
“The demand for this technology has been overwhelming,” said Trevor Calero, co-founder and head of business development & marketing at Halo. “There’s a huge need for real-time hydration monitoring, and nothing exists today that can even come close to what we’re offering.”
The H1, slated for an early 2016 release, will not be made available to the public, however, Halo is currently working on a new wearable device that will specifically target the consumer fitness market.
