My Students

Dealing with dehydrated athletes is not fun and can be scary at times. Having this digital pen will allow Certified Athletic Trainers to check athletes quicker and more efficiently. Athletes who are trying to make weight, like wrestlers, or are working out constantly and not drinking enough water, like football and cross-county runners, are some of our biggest concerns.

Students and athletes need to be taught the importance of hydration and nutrition.

By using this digital pen, students can practice with this tool easier. Athletes can actually see clear numbers and understand that are dehydrated.It will be a great learning opportunity for many students and athletes.

My Project

By actually seeing the numbers on the device, the athletes can realize how dehydrated they really are and sports medicine students can learn how to know when an athlete is hydrated or not. This is a tool that the Sports Medicine can read versus other tools that are more difficult.

Having a limited amount of time to get athletes to practice, this tool will provide a quicker and accurate reading to know if an athlete is dehydrated.

Athletic Trainers can keep an eye on athletes who seem to be prone to dehydration and continue to monitor them closely with providing education on nutrition.
