SMO2 Muscle Analysis
Moxy Monitor provides athletes and coaches the ability to precisely assess a subject’s present performance and limitations. Using multiple NIRS sensors for research and educational purposes, researchers have come to discover that Moxy delivers real-time muscle oxygenation (SmO2) and hemoglobin index (tHb) information at research grade quality. In the Energize Lab, the Moxy can quickly adapt to other protocols and technologies.
Why would you do this test? With Moxy Monitor, athletes can learn how to play harder and go faster, gaining a competitive edge through knowing and understanding their body and how to maximize their potential. Since the data the Moxy provides is real-time, continuous, and available on every training session, most Moxy users eliminate or substantially reduce reliance on blood lactate data.
Who is this test recommended for? SmO2 Muscle performance testing is recommended for every athlete regardless of their age or the sport they play.
How often should you repeat this test? SmO2 Muscle performance testing is recommended every 3-6 months to ensure training regiments are improving these numbers.
Which body parts are or can be tested? The purpose of the SmO2 Muscle performance test is breakdown and analyze the components involved with muscle oxygenation & hemoglobin.
What are the results of this test? The Moxy Portal App is designed as a portable way to view your live strength and live data on your phone or tablet. It’s pushed to the cloud where you can share it with your trainer or other athletes. The Moxy Portal Web tool allows you to annotate your graphs and export your data, and crush your goals.
What does this help to improve? Moxy is a powerful tool to optimize Strength and Conditioning Training for all sports. By getting the data to help you understand your body, you will have the knowledge for how to build muscle and get even better results.
