OVERVIEW


Own Your Health


TRAQ has developed a personal hand-held device providing non-invasive saliva testing for the real-time measurement of personal fitness, health, and wellness. Initially developed for the U.S. Air Force in research labs with over $32M of government funding, TRAQ has made the leap from lab to market.  Unlike most personal health trackers, TRAQ measures specific biomarkers such as glucose, cortisol, cholesterol, lactate and ketones to understand what is happening inside the body at the molecular level.  Collectively, these biomarkers provide accurate feedback related to your fitness, health, and wellness quickly and safely in 30 seconds.


As our “on-demand” culture expands beyond news and entertainment, health and wellness is next – including electronic medical records, at-home diagnostic tests, telemedicine, and point-of-care tests (POCT).  TRAQ provides one of the first-ever solution to providing on-demand knowledge and ownership of your health & wellness without the inconvenience, invasiveness, and expense of traditional lab tests. 


TRAQ’s POCT device, called the “Stone,” uses disposable testing cartridges to provide not only test results but also actionable insights. With TRAQ’s interpreted results, you have the preparation and predictability for optimal performance in sport and activity as well as guidance for better management of personal health and wellness. 


*TRAQ products are currently under development. The Traq POCT device called the "Stone" is currently available for pre-orders.

THE PROBLEM


Health Testing is Costly, Slow, and Invasive 

Blood tests are typically the first step in assessing general fitness or any potential ailments, but they come with many pain points. They are expensive, costing nearly $1,500 for the uninsured in the US. Results are normally not available for days, if not weeks. Additionally, 1 in 5 people worldwide have a phobia of needles, and only half the world’s population has adequate access to healthcare. 



And it’s no different for athletes – casual or elite.  Measuring fitness and performance still requires the same level of expense and invasive medical personnel, all with the same lengthy wait for results.


The problem is real and significant.  

THE SOLUTION


Simple & Easy Testing in Real Time


All health and wellness biomarkers present in your blood (glucose, cortisol, cholesterol, insulin, etc.) are also present in your saliva. TRAQ has developed a proprietary, non-invasive, on demand, point-of-care (POCT) device, called the “Stone,” which uses disposable test cartridges for collecting saliva samples. When test cartridges are inserted into the Stone, biomarker concentrations are converted into digital information providing analyzed results in real time on the Stone’s display or a smart device via the TRAQ app. The test takes less than 30 seconds and uses a simple 5-step process.  



*TRAQ products are currently under development. The Traq POCT device called the "Stone" is currently available for pre-orders.

THE MARKET


$60 Billion and Growing

There is an increasing market need for on-demand and convenient services in healthcare and fitness. This is seen in the growth of at-home testing, telemedicine, personalized medicine, and in-home gyms. The total addressable market for TRAQ is over $60 billion. Markets with addressable problems include fitness and lifestyle ($1.3B), at-home testing for Dr. Moms ($29B), workplace demand for drug screening/compliance or corporate wellness programs ($7.1B), and clinical uses for rapid, remote, digital or telemedicine ($22.4B).





*TRAQ products are currently under development. The Traq POCT device called the "Stone" is currently available for pre-orders.


Entry into these market segments will allow TRAQ to expand beyond current product offerings, taking even further advantage of the personalized or bespoke healthcare trends, for example, gender-based tests for women’s and men’s health or one-to-one cartridges for “John Doe” that might measure heart health and energy levels.  Further, the Livestock & Pet markets are viable but untapped markets.  


Our long-term revenue will come from product sales, subscription-based test cartridges, anonymized data sales, and actionable insights through ad revenue. Additionally, cross-promotional and targeted retailers for co-branding launches will provide extended revenue streams.


*The above listed revenue streams are some of the possible future revenue sources. TRAQ products are currently under development. The Traq POCT device called the "Stone" is currently available for pre-orders.

OUR TRACTION


Clinical Trials, Olympian Tested

TRAQ’s “lab in a pocket,” handheld POCT device – “the Stone” – provides both high level, detailed fitness, health and wellness information in real-time. Three clinical trials had been successfully completed (Energy, Recovery, Hydration), with more on the horizon. The U.S. Cycling team adopted TRAQ as part of its preparation and training for the Tokyo Olympics. Broader use of TRAQ in the US Olympics and Paralympics has also taken place (boxing, rugby, wrestling athletes), as well as for NCAA Division I teams and sponsored triathletes. 


Former cycling gold medalist and current Director of USA Cycling, Jamie Staff, believes in TRAQ not only for his Olympic athletes, but also for the casual athlete, as well as the ability to help anyone measure and monitor their general health and wellness.




“As a former Olympian, current coach and just someone that cares about my health and staying in shape, I feel it’s important to know what’s going on INSIDE my body.  Both myself and my athletes want to truly OWN our own health.


“TRAQ provides in-depth information about my fitness and health – in real-time, using only saliva – so it’s non-invasive, and each test only costs a few dollars.  Plus, I don’t need any doctors or technicians.  Anyone can do these tests.   Energy. Hydration. Nutrition.  Any fitness or health & wellness category. 


“It’s the perfect fitness and health tracker - for me now, as the casual athlete as well as for my athletes training to compete at the highest levels, trying to squeeze out every bit of performance possible.   

Now, we can truly own our own health.”


- Jaime Staff, Former Olympic Gold-winning Cyclist & Current Director of US Cycling

Working with USA Olympic Teams

7 days ago

TRAQ is continuing its work with US Olympic Teams.  Starting back in July 2021, TRAQ started working with various USA BMX cyclists as they ramped up for the Tokyo Olympics.  TRAQ measured athlete's Energy and Hydration levels in real-time, before and after their races, to help them find an edge.  With that data in hand, pre-race preparations were altered to optimize their performance.

Word spread about TRAQ's capabilities and benefits within USOPC - no blood, real-time, accurate.  

Recently, we expanded our efforts with USA Volleyball and USA Boxing.  Athletes looking to fine tune their performances, accelerate recovery, and optimize their preparation are using TRAQ.  Actionable insights include changes to training regimens and nutrition, mid-event recovery, and better customized energy drinks during timeouts or between boxing rounds. 

But TRAQ is not just for elite athletes like US Olympians.  It's for anyone looking to gain better insight into their health.  Why not own your health?

More soon.

Welcome to TRAQs OPO on StartEngine

Hi All,

It took a lot of really nerdy tech and hard work to get to this point, but clinical trials are done and TRAQ is ready for the market!

What is TRAQ? 

A portable (handheld) fitness, health & wellness device - truly non-invasive diagnostics – no doctors, no needles, no blood.  Just saliva.  Biomarkers (like lactate, glucose, testosterone, etc.) are measured in your saliva, giving you results in seconds to minutes.  We’re already working with many US Olympics teams.  First, there was cycling, then volleyball, now we’re on the acrobatics and combat sports.  Beyond the Olympics, we’re just starting to work with NCAA Division 1 athletic programs.  But, it’s not just for athletes.

Your investment will help us start formal production for the Energy and Hydration sensors, with Nutrition, Burn and Recovery sensors to follow.  The demand is there, we just need help satisfying it.

Description automatically generated

The pandemic’s been hard on everyone, but one benefit from our perspective is how educated the market has become regarding non-invasive ways of measuring our health.  We don’t need blood.  Not even nasal swabs.  Saliva is perfect.

Thanks to everyone who's supporting our campaign and our mission toward personalized healthcare for everyone. Feel free to reach out with ANY questions. We mean it.

- TRAQ Team
