Train.Red, a muscle oxygen sensor, can be affected by sunlight interference during training sessions. To mitigate this issue, Train.Red has developed the Train.Red Patch, an accessory made of dark woven fabric that prevents sunlight interference and ensures data quality. Tests have shown that the patch significantly reduces noise and instability in the sensor readings caused by sunlight. Wearing dark clothing or using compressive shorts can also help block sunlight and improve data quality.
To optimize the use of the Train.Red Muscle Oxygen Sensor, follow these tips: Choose the appropriate placement for the sensor based on the exercise being performed. Position the sensor on the muscle belly of the chosen muscle for the best signal. Secure the sensor firmly without being too tight or uncomfortable. Protect the sensor against sunlight to avoid interference with data quality.
Altitude poses numerous challenges to the human body, including temperature drops, high wind speeds, ozone concentration, increased solar radiation, isolation, and, most importantly, a lack of oxygen. At extreme heights, the availability of oxygen decreases due to decreased air pressure and density. These adaptations affect muscle oxygenation, as measured by NIRS sensors like the Train.Red Muscle Oxygen Sensors.
