Electricfoxy’s High-Tech “Move” Tank Top Functions Like a Personal Trainer

THE RIGHT MOVES

Move features four stretch-and-bend sensors in the front, back, and sides of the garment, along with haptic-feedback components located in the hips and shoulders. If your body is out of alignment, you’ll receive a gentle physical “nudge” where you need correcting. Right shoulder dipping or left hip too high? Move will “tap” the relevant body parts until you’re in the target position. Correct movement, says Electricfoxy’s Jennifer Darmour, ensures better performance, faster improvement, and protects against injury.

The garment can measure the precision of specialized moves, say a golf swing or a tricky yoga posture.

Although the tank top is designed to measure the precision of specialized moves, say a golf swing or a particularly tricky yoga posture, it can also assist with more expressive moves such as dancing. Move, in other words, empowers you to become your own instructor, coach, or trainer by helping you set goals, tailor movements to your requirements, and even share your progress when you need motivation from friends or fitness professionals.

Move provides a “softer, poetic, and more personal approach to physical performance,” Darmour adds.
