Skulpt was founded in 2009 by CEO, Dr. Jose Bohorquez, Electrical Engineering PhD from MIT, and Dr. Seward Rutkove, Neurology Professor of Harvard Medical School. The company develops hardware and software to help athletes and fitness enthusiasts understand their body composition and give them intelligence to help them optimize their training for optimum performance.
The heart of technology is the patented Composition Myography (CM), which measures the muscle quality and fat content of each major muscle group, giving an unprecedented level of insight into an athlete's body. The Skulpt Muscle Scanner is the world's first and only handheld consumer device that measures individual muscle quality (MQ) and total body fat percentage. The Skulpt app delivers training programs tailored to the unique physique of each user, providing targeted training for optimal results.
Initially a medical company, Skulpt has been awarded numerous grants from the National Science Foundation and National Institute of Health to develop CM and validate it through various clinical research trials.
Composition Myography has been adopted by dozens of US hospitals and pharmaceutical companies to track the progression of patients with neuromuscular disorders. In 2013, Skulpt began to develop consumer products based on CM technology. Skulpt’s first consumer product, the Aim, was the first-ever electronic to measure muscle quality and the fat content of individual body areas. In March 2016, the company launched the next generation of the Aim, the Chisel and an accompanying iOS and Android app.
