Muscle Oxygen Monitoring (MOXY)


What is a Muscle Oxygen Monitoring (MOXY)?

MOXY uses near-infrared spectroscopy technology (NIRS) to provides real time feedback of muscle oxygen delivery and utilization during exercise. This feedback helps guide your training, manage your recovery, and determine what may be limiting factors of your performance.
