Resumen:
Una pyme española especializada en nuevas tecnologías sobre productos portátiles para medir parámetros físicos, cinemáticos y fisiológicos ha desarrollado un nuevo software para monitorizar entrenamientos en grupo en tiempo real. Esta tecnología permite monitorizar totalmente una clase de fitness en tiempo real mediante el uso de un sistema de colores basado en la frecuencia cardíaca y los rangos aeróbicos de cada miembro del grupo. La tecnología es totalmente visual y ofrece información de la frecuencia cardíaca en tiempo real (pulsaciones por minuto, rango aeróbico y calorías). Se buscan socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación o comercialización con asistencia técnica.

Tittle:
Novel group workout real-time monitoring system
Summary:
A Spanish SME has developed a novel monitor software for groupal workouts in real-time. This technology makes possible to full monitor a fitness class (i.e.) in real time, using a color system based on the HR (heart rate) and the aerobic ranges of every member of the group. It is 100% visual and provides heart rate information on real-time (beats per minute, aerobic range or calories). Several partners are sought for commercial agreements with technical assistance or technical cooperation.
Description:
Electronic activity monitors hold great promise in helping people to reach their wellness goals. These increasingly sophisticated devices and tools help the wearers improve their wellness and performance by constantly monitoring their activities and bodily responses through companion computer programs and mobile apps.

A Southern Spanish SME focused on new technologies related to wearables products for measuring physical parameters, kinematic and physiological, has developed a simple, easy and smart cost fitness group monitoring system.

The technology makes possible to monitor a fitness class in real time, using a color system based on the heart rate and the aerobic ranges.

This product, thanks to its functionality (points system to rank the users), helps to improve motivation and promotes competition among the users, regardless of each one physical condition.

The system is formed by three elements: heart rate belts, USB receiver, and software application:

1. First, install the software application on any device running under Windows. Connect the USB receiver and install the drivers.

2. The user wears the heart rate belt (digital and single shareholder) around his chest. When the electrodes of the belt capture the bpm (beats per minute) the transmitter starts to emit them continuously.

3. The software application collects this information, processes it and displays it with a simple small-windows display. All this using different colors according to the intensity of each user.

Some technical features:

- Heart Rate Transmitter (HRT) uses digital transmission to provide heart rate information in real without interferences.

- The body belt has polymer electrodes integrated with a soft and washable fabric, delivering much more comfort than plastic belts. It is corrosion and water resistant with long life battery built-in.

- USB receptor is plug_and_play; allowing 30 meters range and until 20 transmitters simultaneously. Combined with other USB receptors it can increase the system´s capacity (number of connected transmitters)

The system is an IT (Information Technology) tool to be used in several markets:

a) Fitness: monitoring of group workout encourages motivation and it is a smarter way of training; the motivation reinforce the behavior of the user and his compromise with the workout.

b) Team sports: football, basketball, handball, voley, tennis, squash, etc...

c) Healthcare: due its WW composition (wearable and wireless), it can monitor the heart rate in a big area, allowing mobility to the users. Information keeps recorded in a single device. The real-time provides useful and important information to the person in charge of monitoring.
Advantages and Innovations:
Advantages
- Colors system and the point system available for fitness version motivate and reinforce the sporting activity.
- The architecture of the system allows itself to be scalable, so it can cover a huge number of users with the same system by adding embedded repeaters.
- Low cost group monitoring system
- Help to improve loyalty of users. They feel more confident during sport performance in those conditions of monitoring (endurance points to increase motivation and loyalty)

Innovations
- Low consumption technology (even lower than the latest Bluetooth 4.0 standard)
- Users can customize their information. Instructors can plan a session, choose intensity and duration; besides saving it and sharing it.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
Type of partners sought
Public or private companies, institutions.

Area of activity
Partners should be active in the following areas: fitness, sport clubs, sport teams, sport schools, health monitoring, general sports, any activity involving cardioactivity (dancing, latin rythms...), high performance centers, advanced IT services to sport facilities or business.

Role of partners sought:

a) Final users for commercial agreements with technical assistance.

They will take advantage of every functionality provided by this novel tool. They would provide their needs and specifications for a right implementation and integration of the technology as well as a correct use by trainers and users of the facilities/services.

b) Technical cooperation with Regional/Local IT Partners that provide advanced services to final users like described above) for:

- Sales, Marketing and joint training in their area. They will identify users and needs, implement the tool and provide support for a right exploitation of the technology.

- Technical cooperation for upgrading technology as well as adaptation of the tool to specific requirements of their area or clients (language issues, standards, technical changes...)

- Technical support (at least level 1-2) in terms of local installation, help-desk (technical incidences and questions)
