Lumen is a newly launched wellness device that makes at-home metabolic tracking readily accessible in the form of a compact, portable device and companion app. The handheld system offers a fresh new approach to weight loss, fitness and healthy decision making with a tool that offers real-time metabolism measurements using just the breath.
The device relies on measurements of the body's carbon dioxide concentration and is touted as being like having a nutritionist in one's pocket. To help people reach their diet and fitness goals, Lumen offers tailored suggestions on what to eat, when to eat and the kinds of foods that would be best for fueling a workout. The device is designed to work with the body's innate ability to switch between using carbs and fat for fuel and promises to boost metabolic flexibility over time.
