Innovation of the week

A startup called Skulpt has developed a handheld product that can measure the composition of your body's muscles.

Put away the bathroom scale, said Fox Van Allen in Techlicious.com. A startup called Skulpt has developed a new handheld product, called Skulpt Aim, which can instantaneously measure the composition of individual muscles on your body. “This way, you not only get a more complete picture of your body fat, but you understand what muscle groups you’re making progress with at the gym.” The device uses built-in electrodes to measure “MQ,” or “muscle quality,” which Skulpt says is a measurement of “how powerful your muscle is compared to its size.” Depending on your results, the bundled app—available for Android and iOS—can then “recommend specific exercises that will better your unique body’s condition.” Skulpt says it plans to begin shipping the device in May for $199, although early adopters can preorder on the company’s website for $149.
