We have developed a new piece of personal exercise equipment, named the WAVEX microgym. The product creates resistance by housing a long length of high strength bungee cord within a very small, lightweight, and portable platform. Users can carry out a wide variety of exercises, covering all the major muscle groups in the body by adjusting the products' settings and attaching up to 4 different handles or straps. The product has been designed so it can be used by people of virtually any fitness and strength levels. The inclusion of wireless sensors allow the user to sync the product with the smartphone, tablet, or smartwatch, so they can monitor and record workouts in real time and record progress over time.
It is not currently for sale, we estimate product launch in summer 2017. We currently have several prototypes built that are on test and are in discussions with manufacturers for mass production.
Whilst I don't have one specific person in mind, I am inspired by people who have the drive and passion to follow through on an idea they believe in. People with the entrepreneurial spirit. In the world of design, I personally admire the work of Daniel Simon, a German concept designer who works in automotive and film design.
