Using Moxy for Walking and Running [Infographic]

Posted by Roger Schmitz on Fri, Mar 14, 2014 @ 09:03 AM

Muscle Oxygenation dynamics precisely reflect changes in muscular metabolism and can be used to guide different exercise sessions. The purpose of Moxy during endurance training is to help the user achieve and maintain a training intensity that reflects the desired profile of improvement.

How Moxy is Different Than a Pulse Oximeter - #MoxyMinute

Posted by Roger Schmitz on Fri, Feb 14, 2014 @ 06:02 AM

We've gotten a lot of questions recently about what makes the Moxy Monitor different from a Pulse Oximeter. And for athletes looking to learn more about there bodies, that is a great question. The main difference is that the Moxy Monitor measures muscle oxygen saturation (SmO2) in the capillaries while a pulse oximeter measures hemoglobin oxygen saturation (SpO2) in the arteries. That means that a pulse oximeter demonstrates only the saturation of the oxygen leaving your lungs, while Moxy monitors the percentage of hemoglobin and myoglobin that is carrying oxygen to give a more comprehensive look at the interworkings of your body as you exercise.

Using Moxy Monitor with ZeroPace

Posted by Roger Schmitz on Fri, Jan 31, 2014 @ 08:01 AM
We are pleased to announce that  ZeroPace Training Log software has just released compatibility with Moxy Monitor. Similar to Training Peaks or Garmin Connect, ZeroPace acts as a repository for historical data and data analysis. ZeroPace  imports the .CSV file downloaded from the Moxy Sensor and shows the data as a graph for interpretation and analysis.  The following video features World Cup biathlete Marcel Laponder using Moxy with ZeroPace.

An Introduction to Muscle Oxygen Monitoring with Moxy [Infographic]

Posted by Roger Schmitz on Tue, Jan 7, 2014 @ 06:01 AM

Athletes are constantly searching for an edge to achieve their goals - an honest way to be faster, go higher, finish stronger. The right physiological adaptations can provide such an edge, but often require a serious commitment to many hours of intense training. In the face of this challenge, athletes, coaches, and trainers need accurate and personalized training guidance. Enter Moxy Muscle Oxygen Monitor.

What about Myoglobin?

Posted by Roger Schmitz on Mon, Dec 16, 2013 @ 14:12 PM

The topic of Myoglobin often comes up in discussions about Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS), especially in fitness applications when it’s desirable to measure muscle oxygenation, and when the oxygen consumption rates can be high and change rapidly. NIRS measures optical absorbance of tissues. Hemoglobin and Myoglobin absorb light nearly identically in the near-infrared region, so NIRS cannot measure their oxygen saturations separately.

Understanding the Hemoglobin and Myoglobin Dissociation Curves

Posted by Roger Schmitz on Sat, Dec 7, 2013 @ 10:12 AM

The Hemoglobin and Myoglobin Dissociation Curves, when taken together, represent an important relationship in the delivery of oxygen to exercising muscle. Given that our Moxy Muscle Oxygen Monitor device measures the oxygen saturation of hemoglobin and myoglobin, this relationship is important to understand when interpreting data from Moxy.
