OxyStrap® provides accuracy of body temperature, heart rate and blood oxygen levels equivalent to medical devices. Elevated heart rate, rising body temperature and dropping blood oxygen levels could all be early indicators of an illness. Any significantly abnormal body vital signs detected by OxyStrap® might be an early warning sign to seek medical care. Remember, good health is the best defense against illness.
OxyStrap® is a completely finished & developed product & we are currently producing OxyStrap®s at our facility in San Diego, California. The OxyStrap® can be pre-ordered on Kickstarter starting November 9, 2020.
OxyStrap® is unique & the most effective fitness tracker because it is the only fitness tracker that provides Accuracy of your body Vital Signs (oxygen saturation, heart rate & body temperature) while you’re “on the move” along with real-time audio announcements at user selected frequency. No other fitness tracker on the market has that capability.
We call it OxyStrap® because it's a headband and it provides oxygen saturation data.
OxyStrap® is the only fitness tracker that addresses the issue of safety. It enhances safety by providing accurate and real-time audio announcement alerts to abnormalities of oxygen saturation, heart rate and body temperature. That can be an early warning to stop your activity and seek medical attention. It helps to avoid conditions such as heart malfunction, heat stroke, altitude sickness and other low oxygen situations.
We do not promote the OxyStrap® as a sleep monitor. Despite the fact that many fitness trackers claim that they can monitor & track your sleep effectively, the truth is, they cannot because they do not provide accurate oxygen saturation readings. For sleep tracking, fitness trackers are just gimmicks with false claims of reliability.
Yes, under adult supervision as long as their head size is not too small. The OxyStrap® is a one-size, elasticized, adjustable fit headband.
Unlike most fitness trackers on the market, the OxyStrap® is not designed for 24/7 use. It is specifically designed to be worn for shorter periods during an activity such as exercise workouts, training, sports and even some leisure & work activities. The 6-hour battery life of continuous use is ample for those activities. The Oxystrap® can be used intermittently during an activity to conserve battery if needed. When you use the OxyStrap® in remote areas, it is recommended that you carry back-up batteries and a solar charger.
OxyStrap® is not an FDA approved medical device. However, our rigorous testing has shown that it gives vital signs data results comparable to the accuracy of medical devices if used correctly. It reports accurate data under a wide variety of conditions such as dehydration, low blood pressure, motion, moisture, sunlight, and low environmental temperatures.
Dr. Ron Gertsch, the lead developer of the OxyStrap® remarked: “As an athlete and also a surgeon specializing in bariatrics and fitness, I became frustrated with all the fitness trackers on the market. They were simply gimmicks because none of them provided accurate body vital signs with audio announcements which I knew were essential features for an effective fitness tracker. So, that was the beginning. Now we have finished the development of the OxyStrap® which is truly the ultimate fitness tracker. It enables achievement of the best possible activity results and performance with enhanced safety.”
Pilots who fly small aircraft without pressurized cabins could be at risk for altitude sickness if they do not monitor their body oxygen level. Altitudes above 8,000 feet will cause a reduction in o2 saturation (level of blood oxygen) and could result in danger from altitude sickness.
No, the Bluetooth wireless transceiver in the OxyStrap® is FCC approved for safety.
OxyStrap® must be used with either an android or IOS mobile device (excluding smart watches) which is Bluetooth compatible (4.0 or later). That combination will give you the ultimate fitness tracker. Smart watches and smart phones by themselves are not effective fitness trackers because they don't provide accurate real-time body vital signs.
