Humon started as a research project at MIT Sloan on the premise that technology and biology were on a collision course. The result of this intersection would create the next generation of sensors and products allowing users to understand more about their own bodies and as a result, be their better selves.
We found very paradoxical the fact that, every morning, when you wake up, you know more about your car than your own body.
A year of research later, we came to the conclusion that the people who were ready to adopt and embrace these new technologies were the athletes. More specifically we could help them solve their biggest problem: understand how hard to push themselves but without ever exceeding their limits. That day, we started developing Humon’s first product.
The Humon wearable helps endurance athletes train smarter by monitoring the way their muscles are using oxygen in real-time and empowering them with the information they need to know when and how hard to push themselves.
