Lumen is an Israel based digital health and wellness company. The latest buzz is that they have officially announced
its new decide for helping people in weight management. By just blowing a single breath into the gadget, you will get a personalised nutrition plan for helping people achieve their fitness goals by losing weight and staying healthy.
This device looks very similar to a breathalyzer. At the top, you will find a mouth-piece for breathing into it to get
the results. If you make this your morning routine, you will be always updated with the daily carb consumption,
along with what meal and snacks you should eat. All this information will display on this device’s companion app.
The Lumen app also has a ‘food search’ feature that helps to keep you fit. The food search option shows certain
foods for knowing how many carbs each contains. Not only this, the app also allows you to share pictures of what
you are eating, which is then checked by nutritionists and they give their feedback.
How does Lumen work?
The Lumen uses Respiratory Exchange Ratio, which is the method of knowing the metabolic fuel. In just a single
breath, this device examines the carbon dioxide production and oxygen uptake of the user’s breath. This is done to further calculate the amount of energy burned from fat and carbohydrates.
The Lumen then makes a personalised plan for you to follow without the need for everyday food check-ins or
per day activity. The device uses artificial intelligence that is enough to adapt to your nutritional behaviour and
patterns. This gadget is being made especially to teach you about your body.
It has partnered with a design firm Frog and both the companies didn’t want to make it like a wearable that you
need to keep strapped onto your body or wrist all the time. This device is designed in a way that it can fit your gym bag or handbag easily. You can breathe into it before going to the gym and it will show you if you’re low
on energy and that you need to eat some high-carb snacks along with food options both before and after the gym.
According to the CPO and CMO of Lumen, Dror Ceder,
“IT WAS IMPORTANT TO US THAT WHEN IT COMES TO ENERGY SOURCES IN THE BODY, LUMEN NOT ONLY EDUCATES USERS, BUT ALSO VALIDATES THOSE MEASUREMENTS. THEY CAN COUNT ON THEM BEING SCIENTIFIC, ACCURATE AND PERSONAL, PROVIDING AN EASILY DIGESTIBLE STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO HARNESS THAT ANALYSIS AND ACTIVELY LEAD HEALTHIER LIVES.”
