The Tokyo Olympics The different athletes are approaching and starting to focus completely on the date that was postponed last summer due to Covid-19. While preparations continue to prepare everything for the opening ceremony, the Japanese continue to show their disagreement as the event celebrates.
There were millions of eachdidas and what would happen if it were abolished, something that is not now included in a roadmap WatchIn fact, the vaccination process has already begun for athletes from different countries to attend Such as And now who United kingdom A revolutionary formula has been revealed that the British athletes themselves will actually test against the competition. JJOO.
You might be wondering what that revolutionary formula British athletes use in their preparation. Well, it was the tabloid daily Mail Which revealed that it is a pill with a chip incorporated into it to calculate the body temperature of athletes. Reason? Because the temperatures expected in Tokyo for those dates are extremely high: exceed 30 degrees with humidity above 70 percent.
British residents are not quite accustomed to temperatures like these in July and August. In the UK, they would be around the 20 degree barrier at that time of year. This is why they studied the technology they were created in France Through this microchip, to be able to study how it affects the body of athletes to carry out sporting activity in this climate.
This is how technology works
Created in France, this slide consists of a “small gastro-intestinal tablet” submitted by BodyCap, a French company whose research has been used in military and high-performance sports. Pill Celsius It contains an electronic chip that transmits the internal body temperature via radio waves to an external gateway before, during and after the session. “
As their website states: “The capsule is delivered in a unit package. Once activated, it continuously sends core temperature data in real time.” “It allows, therefore, to monitor the core temperature for a period corresponding to the transit time (24-48 hours on average),” he asserts.
The British media explains how to use it. British athletes try to take the pill the night before to start their workouts. The body length ranges from 24 to 48 hours and these work sessions are carried out in closed facilities and adapted to what they will find during the Olympic event this summer.
The chip sends the data of different athletes to a screen that creates records and can collect and compare the information provided by several of these revolutionary capsules at the same time. Thus, it is possible to study how the bodies of different athletes react to the heat and humidity expected at the Olympic Games at the same time.
Through this technology, it is hoped to prevent possible heatstroke or hypothermia cases and it has already diminished that the hockey team or triathlete are some of those who experience it, in addition to Laura MoyerAnd an athlete traveling 1500 meters and 3000 meters. Although they are not alone, before they tried these capsules also in Road Cycling World Championship Or rugby professionals.
