Traditional consumer and sports markets have been hit by digital technologies and this has opened a new field of applications for wearable and connected devices. It’s a growing market, where these new systems offer an enhanced personal experience when exercising through:
The sensors that support these innovative solutions need to be completely user-friendly, discreet, and robust for all of the conditions under which they are used.
As an expert in foil-based sensing solutions, thanks to our automotive experience, IEE develops the appropriate thin, flexible, and robust sensors for innovative interactive products.
Our Smart Foot Sensor opens the door to a wide range of applications for walking, running and jumping. The flagship product supported by this technology is TUNE by Kinematix (www.kinematix.pt), a wearable shoe fitting system that tracks the evolution of runner’s technique by providing information on how the feet hit the ground, and helps improve this through a personalized training plan.
Our Smart Input Sensors are embedded in the WallJAM interactive rebound training wall, a finalist of the Sports Technology Awards in the Most Promising Concept category (www.walljam.com), and the GP BikeMess by GeBioM, a sensing system recording the seating pressure profile of a cyclist to help custom-design a pressure-leveraging bike saddle (www.gebiom.de), which equips the stores of a major bike manufacturer.
