iHydrate

 

Description

If you are an athlete, the parent of an athlete, an athletic trainer, or a coach of a sports team, then iHydrate™ is for you! One of the biggest challenges athletes face is to know when and how much to drink before, during and after sports. The risk that an athlete will become dehydrated, or suffer a more serious heat-related illness such as heat cramps, heat exhaustion or heat stroke, is always present, but increases dramatically when the heat index is high-in hot, humid conditions.

Some facts:

* Dehydration can begin when an athlete loses as little as 1 percent of body weight. In a 70-pound child, that is less than 1 pound of weight lost through sweat;

* Dehydration effects performance: as little as a 2% decrease in body weight from fluid loss (e.g. 1.2 lb for a 60-lb athlete) can lead to a significant decrease in muscular strength and stamina;

* Children don’t tolerate heat and humidity as well as adults and get dehydrated very easily;

* Dehydration is common in kids playing sports: Of kids studied at summer sports camps more than 50% were dehydrated and 25 to 30% showed signs of serious dehydration, putting them at increased risk of heat-related illness. Dehydration occurred despite the availability of water and sports drinks, frequent breaks and coaches' encouragement to stay hydrated. Once children were dehydrated, it is nearly impossible for them to catch up.

Features:

iHydrate™ gives athletes, parents of athletes, trainers and coaches the tools and information they need to avoid dehydration and other, more serious heat-related illnesses:

* iHydrate™ calculates and displays the apparent temperature based on the current temperature and relative humidity at the user’s current location

* iHydrate™ displays the heat-illness risk given current conditions according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) heat index.

* iHydrate™ allows users to schedule hydration reminders for before, during and after sports for themselves, their children, and the teams they coach. The hydration reminders use the new OS3.0 Push Notifications feature so whether or not iHydrate is running, you will be notified!

* iHydrate™ helps athletes, parents of athletes, and coaches replace fluids lost during sports based on urine color and/or amount of weight lost.

* iHydrate™ includes a reference section of articles on dehydration and heat-illness prevention, signs, symptoms and treatment, and the new 2009 Pre-Season Heat-Acclimatization Guidelines from the American College of Sports Medicine and seven other sports medicine groups.
