We designed a novel extension to the classic benchpress exercise. The system displayed users’ form on a natural user-interface mounted to the bar, allowing users to enter into a live feedback loop, improving bench press form which leads to safer and more effective training.
A mechanically modified and electronically upgraded bench press. The equipment provides the user with live visual feedback of their bench press form symmetricity. Our study demonstrated increased bench press form symmetricity and time under load when user’s utilized the visual feedback system.
