SWEAT SODIUM TESTING

WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW

Discover what to expect at your sweat test
along with the benefits of sweat sodium testing.

Athletes need to know:

 

  1. How much sweat is lost per hour (sweat volume).

  2. How much sodium is lost (sweat sodium concentration per liter).

  3. How to combine sweat volume and sweat sodium concentration to create an actionable hydration plan.

 

Sweat testing and sweat sodium testing are key advantages for athletes to optimize hydration for sports performance during training.

Why Precision Hydration instead of sweat patches?

Advanced sweat testing with Precision Hydration is noninvasive, performed at rest, and results are available immediately. Testing at rest helps eliminate situational losses (e.g. sweat patch coming off or getting loose due to sweat volume and exercise intensity) producing reliable and reproducible results with a low risk of ‘user error’.

Are you a salty sweater?
