In the world of high-end training and pro athletes, detailed data drives optimal results. Rithmio’s motion-recognition software can identify activity, measure motion, and even analyze performance — but the startup needed to show off the multifaceted nature of their algorithms. The brand turned to Pushstart for sophisticated demo hardware solutions.
Data that moves. The team at Rithmio envisioned a set of wearable sensors that could be placed around the body to accurately capture, analyze, and track movement data. The approach had promise, but the challenge was making the system adaptable and comfortable for athletes to wear. Pushstart developed ergonomic capture accessories that allowed nearly unlimited flexibility.
Wearables that work. Charging many small units was an issue, as were the costs of capacitive charging. Pushstart suggested a subscription model where maintenance-free units would be recycled after one year. The team prioritized battery space, optimized energy use, and utilized cost-effective low-batch manufacturing to produce 50 units to meet Rithmio’s software demo needs.
