OUTLINE
• Introduction
• Problem
• Solution
• Risks And Mitigation
• Block Diagram Implementation plan and details
• Questions
PROBLEM
• Inexperienced gym members often perform
exercises incorrectly
• Unproductive
• Leads to injury
• Experienced gym members have trouble
maintaining a balanced workout schedule
• Paper and pencil is impractical
• Easy to lose track
• Personal training is expensive
SOLUTION
• EMG sensors integrated into workout clothing
• Detects muscle activation
• Displays real-time activation data to user
• Logs exercise repetitions over time
• Advantages:
• Unobtrusive
• Affordable
• Intuitive
RISKS AND MITIGATION
• Noise and interference – must reject common mode
• Contact motion
• ECG interference
• AC coupling
• Involuntary or unforced muscle activation – use calibration
• Physical integration of sensors into suit – use flexible PCB
