Performance Feedback Punching Bag System

This Punching Bag System provides real-time, audio feedback to the exerciser. The user’s workout music is modified with their present performance and based on previous workout data. Faster punching speeds up the tempo of the song the user is working out to, while slower punching slows the song. The force of the punch alters the volume (decibels) of the music and punch accuracy changes the pitch (Hertz) of the music. The user can also specify positive and negative playlists for meeting and not meeting their workout goals. In addition, this feedback system can be utilized with other exercise equipment.

Wireless, Helmet, Impact Monitoring System
     This technology utilizes conventional printing techniques to create impact sensors, analytical and transmission circuits. The thin, flexible sensor system lines the interior of a sports or military helmet to detect exact intensity and location of impacts.  This data is wirelessly transmitted to a phone or computer. Results can be instantaneously monitored for concussive impacts or the accumulation of smaller impacts to the same region of the skull.  This technology can also be used for monitoring impacts or pressure in many other applications.
