Polar Introduces Cost-Effective Solution to Reduce Heart Rate Data Cross-Talk
Date:4/14/2008

Patented OwnCode(R) Consumer Heart Rate Monitor Technology Now Available in

Commercial Fitness Equipment

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., April 14, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Polar, the leader in heart rate monitoring and fitness assessment technology, announced today that its patented OwnCode(R) technology -- previously only available in Polar heart rate monitors -- can now be seamlessly and cost-effectively incorporated into commercial fitness equipment, putting it within reach of thousands of manufacturers and health club owners alike. Major commercial exercise equipment manufacturers such as Cybex, FreeMotion (a division of ICON Health & Fitness), Life Fitness, and Precor, and have already integrated Polar's exclusive OwnCode technology into their equipment offerings.

OwnCode significantly reduces the potential for heart rate data cross-talk by blocking unwanted signals from other heart rate monitor chest straps. This ensures disturbance-free transmission of heart rate data, allowing health club members to receive accurate and personalized information about their workouts. Heart rate provides a precise measure of exertion level, calorie burn and a unique window to a person's fitness level. This valuable feedback enables health club members to work out at the most effective intensity, better manage their weight, stay motivated and track fitness and weight-loss progress.

With OwnCode integrated into commercial fitness equipment, health club members will now be able to put on their Polar coded chest strap, get on their preferred workout machine and know that their personal data on display is precise and uninterrupted.

"Polar is addressing the needs of both manufacturers and health clubs with the innovation and affordability found in its exclusive OwnCode technology," said Dave Palo, Director of OEM Sales at Polar Inc. "Knowing how hard you worked out and how many calories you burned is vital for a successful exercise routine. With OwnCode heart rate technology, health club members will now get direct credit for the hard work they're putting in, enabling them to better understand their bodies and maximize the effectiveness of their workouts."
