The Humon Hex is the world's first clinically validated muscle oxygen sensor. The Hex is used to enhance endurance training and measure lactate threshold.
How does is work?
The Humon Hex uses near-infrared spectroscopy to measure the oxygen saturation in muscles (also referred to as SmO2 % or Muscle Ox %). LEDs emit light into the muscle tissue and several detectors measure the light intensity as it propagates through the muscle.
