“As an athlete and surgeon specializing in bariatrics and fitness, I became frustrated with all the devices on the market which were not really effective fitness trackers. This gave me the incentive to organize a team of medical doctors who specialize in fitness, athletes and engineers, with the goal of developing a truly effective fitness tracker. It has taken over 10 years of rigorous research and development, including high altitude research on Mount Everest to finally achieve our goal. The amazing result is the OxyStrap and we are now ready to launch our product to market.”
