This is Vigour, our latest product created in cooperation with TU/e, Martijn ten Bhömer & TextielMuseum
Vigour is a Product Service System that enables geriatric patients, physiotherapists and family to gain more insight in the exercises and progress of a rehabilitation process. A knitted cardigan with integrated stretch sensors monitors the movements of the upper body, and communicates this data to the service provider.
The garment can be worn all day and thereby gather data, and can be worn when executing rehabilitation exercises. An iPad application uses this data to give direct feedback to the wearer and physiotherapist by making sound and visualising progress.
