Technology Overview

Our product offers much more than any fitness product available on the market. Along with standard features currently provided by activity trackers, GestureLogic’s product provides users with detailed insight into muscular and other anatomic activity.  The product combines electromyography (EMG) and motion sensing to analyze various performance metrics that are important for anyone taking part in physical activity. Today’s activity trackers collect information generated at a single point (using accelerometers) and use that information to make a guess about what is actually happening inside the human the body. Conversely, GestureLogic’s product provides a looking glass directly into your body, and gives the user an unparalleled level of insight into whats actually happening. The information collected from the sensors is then displayed on a smart phone in real-time in an elegant and intuitive way. Regardless of your level of knowledge about fitness, you will have no problem understanding what your body is doing and what you can change to improve.  

What is EMG?

Electromyography (EMG) is the process of acquiring tiny electrical signals from the surface of the skin. Widely used by medical professionals and exercise physiologists for decades, EMG allows for the understanding of what happens when these electrical signals are produced. For example, when you want to perform any movement, tiny electrical signals are generated within the muscle fibers associated with that movement. This can be demonstrated by a simple clench of your fist, which results in electrical signals travelling down the fibers within your forearms to translate into movement. GestureLogic has revolutionized the field of EMG by reducing the size, price, and complexity of existing technologies. In doing so, GestureLogic has made the technology accessible to anyone who wants to know more about how their body moves and improves.

The Hardware

The hardware is a wearable sensory network that acquires and analyses information from movements and muscles. The information is then transmitted to a smartphone using a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) protocol. 

The Software

A smartphone application communicates with the sensory network and uses intelligent algorithms to further analyze the data and deliver the necessary insightful metrics for a particular exercise. A graphical user interface then delivers those metrics in a meaningful and intuitive way. Users will also be able to track the progress of their exercise over time, share with their friends and colleagues, and even compare their own performance to professionals. Additionally, our API will also allow 3rd party developers to utilize GestureLogic’s powerful platform to extend its capabilities in any conceivable way.
