SD Sport Innovators (SDSI) is excited to announce that Electrozyme has been named the Sports and Active Lifestyle Technologies category award winner at CONNECT’s 27th annual Most Innovative New Product (MIP) Awards. The MIP Awards are the ‘Academy Awards’ of San Diego's innovation industry, honoring San Diego’s groundbreaking new products launched within the past year.

"Electrozyme, this year’s winner in the Sports and Active Lifestyle category, is an example of emerging technology that is being delivered to the world from San Diego’s convergence of life sciences, wireless and sports and active lifestyle industries," said John Sarkisian, SDSI Industry Chairman of the Board and SKLZ Vice Chairman.  “CONNECT’s MIP Awards does a fantastic job celebrating and recognizing the entrepreneurs behind these innovations. The Sports and Active Lifestyle industry is proud to be included as one of MIP’s nine awards categories.”

Electrozyme was recognized for the development of ProFit SE Real-Time Sweat Electrolyte Sensor, a wireless, personal hydration sensor that monitors hydration levels by measuring the electrolytes in sweat. The wearable sensor helps athletes answer three key questions: When is it time to rehydrate? What should I rehydrate with? How much do I need to rehydrate?
