Electric Flywheel exercise machine for high performance sports
Tagline: An app and electronics to help high performance athletes with overloaded and constant resistance training without needing any extra help.
Development of an app and the necessary electronics to compliment an exercise machine that provides overloaded and constant resistance training to high performance athletes.
High performance athletes requite overloaded eccentric training but such training is difficult to achieve in the gym. It not only requires additional help but can also be extremely dangerous. To overcome this, a motor and electronics were added to flywheel resistance gym equipment to overload the eccentric portion of the exercise.
The equipment consisted of a powerful DC motor, 100 amp power supply, motor controller, rotation sensor, electronics and communication over WiFi to an app. The app itself was developed to work on different platforms including iOS, Android, Windows, Max, and Linux. Moreover, it can easily be installed from any web browser. The rotation sensor feeds the app which then displays various user statistics such as force, power, speed, etc. thus helping the athlete in his training.
