Joint Force System Research & Development

The purpose of this project is to design and evaluate a biofeedback device to help users to complete isometric shoulder and knee joint exercises. Specifically, the device, currently called the “Joint Force System (JFS)”, will measure the user’s force output and exercise form, and provide feedback to encourage ideal levels of effort and correct postures and joint motions. Through this project, the partner organization will gain access to state-of-the-art research facilities, literature, and experienced academic researchers to design and validate the device. This will contribute to Joint Performance’s ability to release a thoroughly tested product and will contribute to the device’s efficacy through design suggestions and iterations throughout the study.
