The flowPATCH is a wearable, non-invasive patch that captures an athlete’s sweat and interprets key bio-markers in real-time, starting with electrolytes and total body fluid loss. We provide our users with personalised recommendations that allows them to improve their performance.
Until now, wearables have used impedance to acquire vitals. We take the novel approach of using microfluidics to capture sweat in a clean environment. The result: lab grade accuracy.
Our sensor team has a combined experience of 30+ years in developing electrochemical biosensors. We take this wealth of knowledge and package it into a 3cmx3cm recyclable patch.
Combining microfluidics and wearable electronics, our proprietary non-invasive patch captures athlete’s sweat and interprets key bio-markers from it in real-time.
We combine our unique flowPATCH hardware with world leading modelling to provide you with the tools you need to improve.
Using world class modelling, we are able to accurately predict your biomarkers in upcoming workouts. By combining these with your supplement preferences, we can give you recommendations before, during and after your workouts.
Study your previous performances with our insights tool. In addition to tracking your workouts over time, we show you problem areas and provide tailored recommendations on how to improve.
You can connect all of your favourite fitness apps to Flow Bio including Garmin, Polar and Apple Health. We then correlate your biomarkers with your workouts, allowing us to provide you with more meaningful insights.
Stefan van der Fluit and Giovanni Rovere shared a vision for the bio-informatics future: people would be using wearable devices to get a real-time picture of what is going on in their body. Using Giovanni’s expertise in developing wearables and Stefan’s extensive knowledge as an athlete, Flow Bio was born.
