Inspiration

The commonality of preventable gym injuries as experienced by us, more recently a close friend, inspired us to work towards an application. A study conducted between 1990 to 2007 indicated that nearly 1 MILLION Americans came into the ER with weightlifting injuries. We want to decrease these unnecessary injuries and promote proper, healthy form and techniques during exercise.

What it does

ConForm provides a wireframe overlay of an individual while they exercise to guide them using proper technique in an effort to prevent unnecessary injuries.

How we built it

We built the application using Python and Tensorflow.

Challenges we ran into

Getting a useable frame rate, organizing the application for platform expansion, and little time!

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Setting up and understanding the code base and beginning to interact with it.

What we learned

Just how difficult it can be to make a large app, design can become difficult in terms of appeal and aesthetics. We have many great ideas we want to implement into the app!

What's next for ConForm

Implementing real-time feedback paired with voice commands to encourage users to fully complete exercises with proper form. Adding a "Buddy System" that pushes notifications to each partner to work out each day and notify each partner about their daily achievements. Creating a positive and active online community.
