Now this one might not be a fitness tracker, per se, but still in the realm of fitness technology. CareWear is a patch that you put on sore muscles and it helps relieve pain and reduce inflammation. It uses blue and red light from the patch to stimulate muscles by increasing the production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide improves blood flow in the body, and in turn will cause muscles to recover faster.
Recovery and pain relief is a multi-billion-dollar business because every year new solutions come out and most of them don’t work. The problem is people don’t have an option but to buy what’s on the market. CareWear might be a step in the right direction, by using real technology to heal as opposed to numbing the pain for short-term relief.
