http://people.ece.cornell.e... The idea behind this project is through the user of sensors to guide a human into performing a bicep curl with the best form possible. The muscle group to be targeted by our device isthe bicep brachii.Our device will be tuned to check the form on one of the many variations on the dumbbell bicep curl. The goal of this project was to assist the user in learning the proper technique for a physical exercise, in our case a dumbbell bicep curl. As our understanding of biology and anatomy improves, the design of physical exercises is improved by the application of scientific principals and experimental results. For each exercise there is a known pace and kinematic pattern that yields optimal results. In practice however, it is often difficult to follow the prescribed motions. Thus our project was to create a wearable sleeve that coaches the user through the correct motion of a bicep curl. There is significantpotential impact of such a device on the world of bodybuilding or physical rehabilitation, because it will allow people to efficiently train in order to get the most out of their effort, instead of using excessive amounts of weight and poor form. More motivation for this project stems from the high cost of personal trainers who teach proper form and difficulty of maintaining the ideal pace of each exercise. The concept of a �haptic exercise coach� could fill a niche in the fitness market for self-paced learning of exercises. Another exciting application is for physical therapy, where such devices could be particularly useful if the functionality was extended to capture and track data on the repetitions and range of motion achieved.
