Details

Key features:

Noninvasive Technology

Ember delivers hospital-grade technology and accuracy, without the needles and blood work.

Quick Results
Results in approximately 1 minute. No more waiting for lab work.

Smart Tool

Ember seamlessly pairs with your iPhone, allowing you to easily view and share tracking results using the free app.

Easily See Trends

Ember comes with a suite of at-a-glance graphs that make it easy to track trends to see how different activities and conditions impact each measurement.

Track Results by Activity

Track and trend hemoglobin and pulse/respiration/blood circulation rate measurements by specific activity or by all activities to see the impact on hemoglobin levels.

Easily Upgradeable to Premium
Add up to 6 additional parameters by unlocking oxygen, respiration, and/or dyshemoglobin bundle(s) through in-app purchases.

Earn free test credits

Earn free testing credits for consistently using your Ember unit by participating in the Frequent Tester Rewards Program*

* For every calendar month that you test one or more times in a day, for 25 or more days of that month, you earn between 25 and 31 free measurement credits (equal to the number of days in that month).  Your 25 days of testing during the month do not have to be consecutive.

Description:

Measures 4 parameters: hemoglobin (Hgb), pulse rate (PR), pulse rate variability (PRV), and perfusion index (PI).  Ember Sport is a great way to get started and understand how activities and your training can affect your hemoglobin and pulse rate – and ultimately your performance.  You will have access to the full suite of interactive graphs to help you track and trend your hemoglobin, pulse rates and perfusion index over time and by activity.

    Parameters

    Hemoglobin

    The protein contained in red blood cells that is responsible for delivery of oxygen to the tissues. The range of hemoglobin values can vary based on your age and biological sex. For adults 18 years and over at rest, hemoglobin values can be between 12-15.5 g/dl for females and 13-17.2 g/dl for males.

    Why Measure:

    Tracking your Hgb first of day and Pre/Post specific activities such as workouts or hydration may help you understand the intensity of your workouts and the fluid volume shifts and/or recovery times. Additionally, you may be able to learn the extent to which elevation training increases your Hgb and how long the effect lasts after returning to sea level.

    Pulse Rate

    The number of beats your heart takes per minute (bpm) as detected from the pulsation at your finger tip. At rest values range between 50-85 bpm however fit individuals typically have lower resting heart rates. This is because their heart is more efficient and effective with each beat that it requires fewer beats per every minute.

    Why Measure:

    Tracking your pulse rate first of day and pre and post work out is a great benefit of using Ember to get an understanding of the intensity of your workouts as well as the impact over time to your fitness level on your first of day pulse rate.

    Pulse Rate Variability

    PRV is a measurement of the variability in time between successive pulse rates and corresponds to the body’s ability to adapt to different physiological or environmental stimuli. A higher PRV score means that there is more variability in the time periods (which is a good thing) and a lower PRV score means that there is less variability. As such, PRV has become a useful tool in understanding the athlete’s adaptation to training load and recovery. Values in the range of 20-70 are considered normal for healthy adults.

    Why Measure:

    PRV is helpful in understanding the body’s adaptation to training load and recovery. Once a baseline PRV value is established, upwards trends in PRV value generally indicate increasing fitness/adaptation to a training load, whereas downward trends in PRV, generally indicate that the body is in need of rest and recovery.

    Perfusion Index

    The ratio of pulsing blood to the non-pulsing blood in your finger and is used to indicate the strength of blood flow to your finger. Ember can measure a range from 0.02 to 20%.

    Why Measure:

    The higher the number, the stronger your blood flow. You may see low perfusion index numbers when you have cold hands.
