Abstract:
    User-friendly tech solution/replacement to gym trainers. Monitor postures during exercise and also counts the reps during exercise. Wearable band, and wallet-friendly device. Novel Idea.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    90% injuries at gym because of free weights (almost 1 million injuries during an 18-year study period in the US alone). Many of those injuries occur due to bad posture. Considering only 12.5% people use human trainers in the US and that ratio is negligible in Pakistan, this product benefits millions
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Gym Beginners all over the world. The Target market is huge considering tens of thousands of gyms all over Pakistan. With extrapolation, the gym members reach in the millions in Pakistan alone, with less than 0.01% having access to economical human trainers. This product will supplement that need.
How will the solution works
    The solution is simple but ingenious. It makes use of IMU data and develops angular "range" of operation. These "angles" and positions allow the coding program to keep track of user posture, considering links and joints of the human body. Furthermore, after integration, the product also suggests the optimum "range" or "posture" to exercise a certain repetition. This data is processed over Arduino. The end product will have a database of exercises and audio feedback for suggestion.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Although many companies like Samsung, Motorola, Apple and Fit-bit have developed gym wearable, these companies focus towards heartbeat censors and calorie counts. Till yet, no work has been done on the posture control of the athlete. Therefore, this unique value-adding feature trumps the competition
