First wearable sensor for real-time monitoring and optimisation of sport training

Project description

Next generation wearable device for athletes

Wearable health devices are an emerging technology changing the health monitoring approach. Enabling self-health tracking and proactive health management, athletes are also turning to wearable sensors to monitor their performance, injury and recovery time. The EU-funded Smart Tracker project is bringing to market the Caura pack – the first molecular tracker that measures lactate and glucose in real-time to reveal the body’s molecular signature. For athletes, it provides valuable training insights on how their body is performing to avoid exhaustion. Non-invasive, wireless and continuous glucose and lactate monitoring helps athletes identify which diet works best, and the optimum time to train. The Caura pack makes use of new microneedle technology, a cost-effective digital tracker plus sophisticated machine learning algorithms.
