September 12, 2006 The human body is roughly two thirds water, and if we lose just one percent of that water, we get thirsty. Lose more than one percent and things start going quickly wrong, with fatigue and impaired physical performance resulting, though most of us don’t recognise the symptoms as hydration related. Doctors, nutritionists and fitness trainers invariably recommend that we drink more water yet keeping track of the fluids we drink is problematic. Most individuals find it difficult to simply remember to drink fluids on a regular basis, let alone calculate and track their daily intake. HydraCoach hydration monitors are capable of all this and more, allowing users to develop and easily adhere to customized fluid intake plans. The HydraCoach hydration monitor is a small electronic device comprising a low pressure, low volume, liquid flow sensing mechanism linked to an interactive display module. When the unit is inserted between a hydration source and its drinking port, a complete system is created that provides an accurate measurement of fluid intake for proper hydration. There’s also an intelligent HydraCoach water bottle which tracks and calculates your personal hydration needs, tracks your real-time fluid consumption, paces you throughout the day and motivates you to achieve and maintain optimal hydration. Just in case you figure that proper hydration is only for athletes, it’s also imperative for full brain function, people trying to lose weight, the elderly and individuals on medication. The Hydracoach Intelligent Waterbottle will cost just US$30 when it hits the shelves in December.
