Muscle Oxygen Monitors: Market Insights
Moxy Muscle Oxygen Monitors measures and monitors the oxygen saturation levels in muscle tissue of athletes. Muscle Oxygen Monitors are based on a technology which is called as Near-Infrared Spectroscopy. It is a kind of spectroscopy method which uses infrared region of the spectrum.
The “Near Infrared” uses light that is at or just beyond the red end of the visible spectrum. Muscle oxygen monitors uses light from about 680 nm to about 800 nm. Near infrared light is used in the process of muscle oxygen monitoring because it can travel a very long distance through skin, muscle and fats. It does not get completely absorbed through skin and hence, travels through a long distance.
The light is scattered through the tissues rather than travelling in a straight line and helps in making quantifiable measurements. The other factor why infrared region is used is that it gets absorbed by haemoglobin and myoglobin molecules which have oxygen bound to them.
Myoglobin is a molecule in muscle cells which is capable of binding and releasing oxygen and acting as a store of oxygen in the muscle.
Haemoglobin is the molecule in red blood cells which is responsible for the transportation of oxygen in the blood. Haemoglobin binds oxygen while passing through lungs and then releases the oxygen when it passes through the capillaries of the tissue that needs it.
Oxygen saturation in the muscles refers to the percentages of haemoglobin and myoglobin which carries oxygen in the muscles. It is derived by taking the amount of oxygen carried by haemoglobin and myoglobin which is then divided by the total amount of haemoglobin and myoglobin. The results obtained is then multiplied by hundred to get it as a percentage.
The muscle oxygen monitors can measure the oxygen saturation percentage which can vary from zero percent to hundred percent. Muscle oxygen monitors performs a secondary measurement of total amount of haemoglobin.
