Field of application

The DR2 system serves for measurement and analysis of SmO2, THI, pulse rate and pulse index parameters by means of NIRS/VIS methods. The integration with the conventional methods lactate threshold test and spiroergometry results in comprehensive sports medical performance diagnostics enabling threshold analysis and deriving recommendations regarding training schedules, intensities as well as monitoring and documentation.

The hardware consists of a sensor directly located on the skin above the working muscles so that DR2 can be used both in laboratories and in ongoing training.

Who uses the DR2 system?

The hardware and software comprises special performance diagnostics components and is therefore designed for use in sports medicine. Our target clientele includes Olympic training centres, universities, sports physicians and professional coaches. DR2 can be used both in research but also in planning and monitoring training sessions.
Important: Currently, the sensor is not certified according to German MPG (Medical Devices Act). Hence, diagnostics are limited to the common, non-clinical recommendations regarding sporting activities in the context of performance diagnostics.

Scope of delivery

The full-featured DR2 hardware and software set consists of:
• 1-4 x DR2 NIRS/VIS sensors for measurements on several persons or several parts of the body
• 1 x OXY4Pro analysis software license, parallel management of up to 4 DR2 sensors. Import of spiroergometry data from COSMED OMNIA ©

Note: When using additional resistance equipment, ergometers or GPS systems the load parameters required for diagnostics (power or velocity) can be determined. These are not part of the DR2 set.
