Looking at the whole spectrum of consumer grade health devices, most of them focus on giving feedback to users based on e.g. movement and mathematical formulas to calculate estimations of calorie burn. Framgo is filling the clear void in the spectrum of consumer grade health devices by giving real performance feedback, based on the consumer herself. One of the major products we are working on currently is a device which gives the consumer an actual image of his or hers muscle and fat layer to a smartphone and an application which makes this data useful for the consumer. However, this is only the beginning.
