Smart Fitness Wearables for Safety and Performance

Measuring the workout intensity and duration is necessary to judge training effectiveness. For instance, a training modality called high intensity interval training (HIIT), involves exercising for short intervals with maximum intensity combined with longer low-intensity recovery intervals. This form of training would help the metabolism to use more fat as fuel, improving athletic endurance, and as opposed to traditional cardio exercises, can mitigate muscle loss. Similarly, measuring the force of impact and number of impacts is necessary to judge the health and safety of the athlete. This research investigates sensory systems, algorithms, and embedded computer platforms to acquire and utilize sensory data for monitoring, analysis, and processin
