The gymnastics MotivePro suit is a vibrating ensemble that allows Olympic gymnasts to be in top condition. This suit was first designed at Birmingham University in England, and may result in Britain having an advantage for performing with absolute precision.
This creation uses teeny sensors secured to an individual's skin that are sparked when the user moves incorrectly. The computer is a tracking device, and the results are recorded by their coaches. This technology was originally designed by ballet dancer Professor Gregory Sporton to improve his posture while performing, and has been modified to help the muscle memory for pro athletes.
This invention will be helping British athletes at the upcoming summer Olympics and questions whether other countries have similar technologies to enhance performance. We will see at the Olympics if this technology has proved to be as effective as it has been claimed to be.
