Skulpt Aim, a device to measure body fat and muscle quality, has hurdled their $100,000 goal on Indiegogo with more than 30 days remaining in their crowdfunding campaign. Supporters from 32 different countries supported the unique device. Expectations are for the first Skulpt’s to ship in May 2014.
The Skulpt Aim is the world’s only wireless device able to accurately measure individual muscles’ fat percentage and muscle quality. Its online dashboard allows users to track their progress and get tailored workouts, helping them stay motivated and exercise smarter. By measuring four muscles (biceps, triceps, abs, and thigh), Skulpt gives you an estimate of your total body fat percentage and Muscle Quality (MQ). MQ is a measure of a muscle’s strength and definition. It is calculated by analyzing how current flows through muscle tissue using multi-frequency signals applied with four different electrode configurations.
“We are so grateful for the overwhelming support we have received,” said Jose Bohorquez, CEO of Skulpt. “We chose to launch a crowdfunding campaign because we wanted our earliest adopters to be part of the journey of bringing this revolutionary technology to market. Not only have they given us the funding to start manufacturing the Skulpt Aim, their feedback is helping us refine the product and implement the features they value most.”
Skulpt was founded in 2009 by CEO Dr. Jose Bohorquez, electrical engineering graduate from MIT, and cofounder Dr. Seward Rutkove, Neurology Professor at Harvard Medical School. Skulpt spent four years developing a medical-grade device to quantify muscle quality for the clinical research market. With the Aim, Skulpt makes this technology available to consumers to track their fitness.
