As individuals thoroughly involved in sports and other mediums of physical activity, we recognize that one major issue regarding exercise is the risk of muscles feeling sore or even getting injured. Thus, we decided to tackle this issue by providing a website for the general public.
What it does
Recovery Lab is a web application that provides an in-depth guide to stretches that individuals can perform to exercise certain muscle groups. The stretches benefit muscle groups in discomfort and lower the risk of injury. Through this application, users can simply select a muscle group and view digestible demonstrations of the most essential stretches for the corresponding muscles.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
An accomplishment we are extremely proud of is successfully deploying our web application to a public server through Heroku. Although Heroku is relatively user-friendly compared to servers like AWS and Azure, it is still difficult to deploy code, as oftentimes the errors are unknown. In our case, we failed the deployment in our first attempt because we did not list out all necessary dependencies required to run our application but were able to quickly identify and fix the issue, resulting in a successful deployment of our web application.
What we learned
What's next for Recovery Lab
We plan on expanding our current progress with Recovery Lab by listing out the various benefits involved with performing certain stretches. Additionally, our team hopes to enhance the interactiveness of the website by incorporating an account system that enables individuals to customize unique schedules that incorporate various stretches that best fits them.
