Vibrating MotionPro Can Teach Gymnasts Correct Posture

If you've ever tried a sport where you couldn't quite get the swing right, or a dance where there was one thing that seemed off, the vibrating MotionPro is a piece of new-age technology that can teach you how to do it right.

Created by Birmingham University professor and dancer Gregory Sporton, the suit has computer-generated sets of movements that it compares the suit-wearer's movements to. This way, athletes like group gymnasts can know where and when their moves are off so they can fix them to be more synchronized.

Though it can be said that technology and gear of this sort aim to trump personality and certain individualistic quirks, there is no denying the potential of the MotionPro as it extends out of sports to other fields, such as as physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
