IRVINE, Calif., March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cercacor today announced world-record-holder runner Brenda Martinez is the latest champion to become an Athlete Ambassador with the company. Cercacor makes EmberTM – the world's first non-invasive hemoglobin tracker for endurance athletes. Ember enables endurance athletes and their trainers to non-invasively measure hemoglobin, oxygen content, oxygen saturation, perfusion index, pleth variability index, pulse rate, and respiration rate in approximately 30 seconds.
Martinez is a middle-distance, elite track & field championship medalist and Olympian. With her three other Olympian teammates, she broke the indoor distance medley relay world record (10:40.31) in Boston on January 28, 2017. Among her many other achievements include being the 2016 USA Indoors 1500m Champion (4:08.57). Martinez will share her experiences using Ember through her and Cercacor's websites, social media, a series of videos and limited appearances.
When Martinez won the bronze medal in the 800 meters at the IAAF World Championships in Moscow in 2013 (PR 1:57.91), she became the first American woman to ever place in the top three in this event at the world championships. (Martinez may be upgraded to silver, instead, pending the final appeal and adjudication of a suspended athlete.)
Before earning her degree in 2010 from the University of California Riverside, Martinez was a three-time, NCAA All-American. She currently lives in Big Bear, CA with her husband Carlos Handler and has used Ember since December 2016.
Smaller than a smartphone and using only light, Ember enables users easy and immediate access to key data about their bodies as part of their strategic training regimen. Users download the Ember app to their (Apple / iOS) smartphone or tablet, which then connects to the Ember device via Bluetooth. Athletes and trainers use the app to view, build a historic record, and segment and track their collective data. Ember is available on Cercacor's website, http://www.cercacor.com.
"Over the course of my career, I've learned that being in tune with my body is absolutely essential for improving performance," explained Martinez. "I use Ember three to four times a day to gain insights into several of my critical biomarkers that I wouldn't know without doing blood tests. The device is simple, painless and has become an integral part of my training sessions."
"It's an honor to have a runner and athlete of Brenda's caliber help us share Ember with the world," stated Cercacor's VP of Marketing Mel Chiba. "We really admire her methodical training regimen and relentless pursuit of becoming the best possible runner. We also applaud how much time she gives to inspire and encourage young female athletes and runners."
"Brenda's a terrific champion and role model," explained Dotsie Bausch, Cercacor's marketing strategist & ambassador and a 2012 Olympic Silver Medalist. "She really embodies what Cercacor looks for in an Athlete Ambassador."

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

Now that the world has connected “things,” we need to build these devices as truly intelligent in order to create instantaneous and precise results. This means you have to do as much of the processing at the point of entry as you can: at the edge. The killer use cases for IoT are becoming manifest through AI engines on edge devices. An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Crupi, Vice President and Eng...

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
