I’m thinking of creating a HIIT workout that would have a circuit of exercises recorded and sensors placed on the client to record their movement and metabolic activity. The client would workout with the video, and sensors would then be used to give the client feedback if their form was incorrect or if they were not in their target workout zone based on their lactate threshold.
I saw a clip on facebook that showed snips of a game show. One person, or a group, stand on a line while a wall slowly comes towards them. In the wall, there’s a hole with a strange shape. When the wall comes up to them, they have to shape their bodies to the exact shape of the hole so that when the wall passes by, it passes right around them. So, if the wall has a hole that’s very close to the ground and wide, the team has to lie down flat. If the wall has a hole that’s very tall and narrow, the team (or individual) has to stand tall and sideways. As the players get better, the “wall shape” gets harder – it might be an X shape, or an inverted L, etc.
I’m envisioning “corrective” software like this wall. It can tell you what shape it wants you to get into, and you might be able to imitate that shape, but is that shape actually good for that specific individual? That would be my quandary designing such a software – how to make it actually meaningful and useful, versus a mold that doesn’t work for everyone.
