>Health and Nutrition>Wearable biosensor detects lactate levels
Can somebody please explain to me exactly how this could be even remotely helpful?
The use of blood lactate levels to monitor and guide higher-speed training (such as intervals) is well documented. However, for this particular sensor to be useful they would need to demonstrate a high correlation between blood (such monitors are what is classically used) and sweat lactate levels as monitored by this sensor. I'll take a look at the paper but I would be a bit surprised if sweat tracked blood closely enough to be useful. I would think there would be a lag time for the lactate to get from the blood and into the sweat.
