Wondercise Live Motion Matching Technology
Pioneering fitness technology startup Wondercise, creator of the world’s first home training system to analyze and compare user movements with those of an on-screen trainer in real-time, is revolutionizing the fitness industry with its on-demand home workouts that have become a scalable virtual training with a personal touch. The exclusive and patented Live Motion Matching technology enables users to maintain a focus on form, staying aware of their each and every move, and provides meaningful feedback to maximize workout results.
Wondercise offers unlimited access to over 400 courses with sessions from trainers, including MMA champion Luis ‘Baboon’ Palomino, fitness influencer Adam Frater, and experts across a huge range of disciplines. These include Resistance Band Training, Hip Hop Dance, Kettlebell Crush, Tai Chi, Yoga and more. Thanks to its pioneering Live Motion Matching technology, Wondercise brings the personal touch of taught classes to living rooms around the world.
To promote fitness continuity and motivation, Wondercise’s iF Design Award entry emphasizes on the app’s new social and networking elements to bring more interactive and responsive methodologies into its services and the smart fitness realm. This creates and increases senses of ‘want’ (competition, staying connected) and ‘need’ (health indicators, guidance, analyses to maximize training efforts). The app digitalizes fitness fit for all levels of workout intensity and capacity. Its foundation is also a base for integrating fitness technology with user social lives and can be tried for various fitness and healthcare scenarios, assisting in the betterment of quality of life and longevity.
