The GRASPOR app

Our app is vital for using GRASPOR, as oxygen is vital for your performance.

The app is used for getting you started GRASPORING, but is also the hub where you can download new updates for your GRASPOR device and connect to your Garmin account. Finally, the app can be used as an analysis tool.

But, you can use your Garmin head-unit to see live data to make the use of GRASPOR more convenient during your ride.

 

Before you can begin to use GRASPOR, you have to download the app.

You can download the App from google play store, and the apple app store from these 2 QR codes, by scanning it with your phone camera.

Once you have downloaded the app, you need to create an account. After that you’re ready to get started.

The device

Button

The button is only used to turn the device on and off. One single press on the button turns the device on. If you wish to turn the device off, you should hold down the button for a few seconds. The button also houses the LED’s, and shows what state the device is in.

Firmware

Your GRASPOR device will automatically update the firmware when there is a newer version available. This will happen the first time you connect to the app after a new release. Once the download is finished, you simply restart the device to finalize the installation.

NB: It is important to keep the device updated, to ensure you get the best experience and have all features available on your GRASPOR.

You can see your device’s current firmware version by connecting it to the app and navigating to the “Profile” tab.

When in the charger the LED will pulse red. It may stop pulsing after some minutes, but the device is still charging.

The Sleeve

Device placement

The device is clicked into place from the inside of the dock in the sleeve. There should be a clear *click* noise from the dock.

It is important that you ensure it has clicked into place correctly, to ensure data quality and stability.

Sleeve placement

As GRASPOR measures the muscle oxygen locally on your leg, it is important that placing of the sleeve is done correctly, and the same place each time you use it. The sleeve should be placed halfway up your thigh, between your knee and hip, and the sensor should be facing slightly right.

You can make your own guidelines that ensures you place it the same place every time.
E.g. measure how many fingers you can place between the bottom of the sleeve and the top of your knee.

The triangular cut-out should be placed halfway between your hip and knee.

The edge of the laminate layer on the sleeve should follow a straight line down the front of your thigh. This will ensure that the sensor is placed correctly on your thigh.

Your first recording

You can record your GRASPOR data (Muscle Oxygen) from either the app, or your Garmin bike computer or watch.

If you’re using our app to record your data, here’s how it’s done:

1. Turn on the device, by pressing the button once and wait for the LED to begin pulsing blue.
