The Canadian and US boxing teams are using the Hykso tracking sensors to train smarter in preparation for the Rio Olympic Games.
The Hykso tracking sensors are lightweight sensors, which boxers tape on their wrists, that sends data to the matching app. The sensors count punches thrown and measure the velocity and intensity of each punch. The app can also distinguish the different types of punches thrown.
The Hykso tracking sensors are able to provide more accurate data to help boxers improve on their technique and focus on areas of weakness. The sensors relay realtime data to the app, so coaches can use the information to tell boxers how to improve, or what they're doing well. The app also enables boxers to track their progression and set goals to continue to improve.
