Skulpt Aim is trying to revolutionize the way fitness is measured. This amazing fitness tracker was created by a team of Ivy League vets, who are looking to change the way we exercise. The Skulpt Aim, launching on the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform measures the fat percentage and muscle quality of your workout in seconds.
What is Crowdfunding?
For those of you new to crowdfunding, it’s a term used when people turn to the masses via the internet to raise micro investments to help fund an idea. Many times these people have both amazing and innovative ideas, yet no access to venture capital. Indiegogo is a platform in which you may advertise your project and begin to build a loyal consumer base.
What Are The Benefits of Skulpt Aim?
Skulpt Aim is a great fitness tracker for a couple different reasons. One being that this tracker, unlike most fitness trackers, measures muscle quality and fat percentage.
MQ, or Muscle Quality, is a measure of a muscle’s strength and definition. It is calculated by analyzing how current flows through muscle tissue using multi-frequency signals applied with four different electrode configurations.
These are two crucial measurements needed to determine the results of your workout. The second reason is with these measurements, users can quantify their gains or losses. As explained in our article featuring the Atlas Wristband, recording your steps, calories, and heart rate are not effective means to track your progress. Although motivating these variables are very minuscule in the overall progression of your personal fitness, you need a device that can track your body from the inside out. Skulpt Aim is the first fitness tracker to offer these features.
If you’re not familiar with CrowdDistrict, you’ll soon pick up that we are crazy about the latest fitness technology. We support the effort of those out there looking to improve the quality of health for other. And of course, so does The Health Blog.
Who’s Building Skulpt Aim?
The team was founded by Dr. Jose Bohoroquez and Dr. Seward Rutkove. The latter graduated in engineering from MIT and the former currently teaches at Harvard. The rest of their 13 person team is made of developers, engineers, designers, and even a growth hacker. Having a experienced team is not a requirement for crowdfunding projects but will make you feel a lot better supporting the project.
For athletes everywhere you need the ability to measure how leaner and stronger you are getting every day. That’s the only way to improve, and to set your fitness goals. Get a grip on your personal fitness with the Skulpt Aim fitness tracker.
