KINFINITY´s Smart Bandage (also referred to as MoCa-Ba, Motion Capture Bandage) tracks motion during sport activity in real time and provides helpful tips.
How the Smart Bandage worksThe bandage integrates unique motion capture sensors, originally developed for astronaut applications on the International Space Station. The technology was also used to track the human full body movement in space. Following the highest regulations for space technology, the sensors offer the highest accuracy and reliability, thus allowing for new ways of tracking personal or health-related training. Coupled with a smartphone app, the motion data is easily accessible and understandable to the user and offers intuitive visualization and feedback of carried out motions.
Development and SmartX supportWithin the SmartX project, KINFINITY was able to develop the Smart Bandage and test it in several user studies. They also developed a smartphone app for the user.
