The Humon Hex SmO2 sensor is a wireless and invasive device that measures muscle oxygen in real time. It uses near-infrared spectroscopy to measure the saturation of hemoglobin in the muscles (also known as SmO2). LEDs emit light into tissue, and detectors measure the intensity of light that travels through the muscle. Because oxyhemoglobin ( HbO2) and deoxyhemoglobin (Hb) have different absorption spectra in the near-infrared wavelength range, SmO2 can be calculated.
The Humon Hex SmO2 sensor is the first clinically validated muscle oxygen tracker that allows athletes, sports teams, and performance labs to optimize workout intensities, minimize injury, and monitor progress. It measures directly into your muscles providing the best metric of exertion that exists and in real-time.
The insights help you optimize workout intensities, minimize injury, and monitor progress in real-time. Also track progress daily to help optimize your training routine.
