Application of smart clothes in mobile exercise monitoring
This video shows the application of smart clothes for squat monitoring.
Multiple miniaturized inertial measurement units (IMUs) are integrated into a pair of pants using textile cables. This results in a light-weight and easy to use platform providing comfortableness and maximal movement flexibility for the user. A customized firmware for energy-efficient data acquisition, in addition to a selection of low-power components extends the autonomous operation time compared to traditional approaches.

The mobile application provides:

  • Real time estimation of hip and knee joint angles with visualization
  • Detection of eccentric(downward) and concentric(upward) phases of squat
  • Counting the repetitions with visual and audio feedback
