With the World Cup™ well into the knockout stage of the tournament we take a look back at our blog “OPTi refractometer monitors hydration levels of world class athletes”.
Staying hydrated is important in all walks of life but for competitive athletes the need to monitor hydration levels is a vital part of tournament preparation as they prepare their bodies for intense training and competition.
The OPTi Sports Science comes with a dual scale, Brix and Urine Specific Gravity, which is great for sports physios and for any athletes wishing to ensure optimum hydration. The Brix scale can be used to monitor sugar levels of drinks being taken by the athlete, whilst the urine specific gravity scale can be used to monitor hydration before and after training. Doing so provides a baseline for water/sugar replenishment.
