Body-sensing shirt could help coordinate a persons movements
Wish you could play golf like Tiger Woods or tennis like Roger Federer? A T-shirt able to measure muscular activity during training might help by letting you see exactly how to coordinate a swing or other move.
The prototype garment contains small sensors that measure the electrical activity of contracting muscle tissue.
Developed by EU researchers on the ConText Project, it allows a computer to show exactly which muscles are being used during a particular movement. This can help athletes' performance by helping them understand better ways to use their strength.
