Help ZEPP Labs motion sensor technology, to develop a wearable device monitored by a smartphone / tablet app to help prevent injury and keep athletes in the sports/games they love.
In the US about 30 million children and teens participate in some form of organized sports, and there are3.5 million injuries each year, which cause student athletes to lose playing time.Almost one-third of all injuries in childhood are sports-related injuries.Yet, over 50% of all sports injuries in youth are preventable. Overuse or misuse injuries of a body part are responsible for nearly half of all sports injuries to middle and high school students.
Your challenge is to use ZEPP Labs motion sensor technology, including: accelerometers, gyros, pressure sensors, GPS, heart rate, etc. to develop a wearable device monitored by a smartphone / tablet app to help prevent injury and keep athletes in the sports/games they love. Choose a sport and identify a common injury that is causing athletes a significant loss in participation time. Using ZEPP Labs technology design a wearable device to lower teen injuries in that sport. The design of the device should:
Improve balance, strength, coordination, and/or specific skills in the sport.
Be comfortable and provide accurate data.
Address conditioning and proper body mechanics.
Capture all data from the device and send it wirelessly to the app.
Have an application that works seamlessly with the hardware providing critical data.
Turn the app into a game that helps make using it FUN and SOCIAL.
Focus on extremity injuries and product solutions for arms, legs, knees and shoulders (i.e. not head injuries)
Meets all federal and state health and safety requirements, including proper labelling of fire exits
Price range to drive adoption to the largest population: Retail price must be competitive with an attractive ROI.
Target retail price should be $99 per unit.
Prototype testing ready by end of the year 2015.
