Fitness companion for inactive young adults
Over 50% of young adults aged 20-30 are not exercising to the recommended guidelines. Their busy schedule often leads to them not prioritising their health and fitness, which may increase the risk of developing physical and mental illnesses. Blob is a physical reminder in the home with a friendly and inviting presence that works around your schedule to make exercising more approachable and achievable. Blob uses visual prompts - a red warning light to indicate when it is time to exercise, and a green light is displayed when the user has reached their fitness goals and are on track to meet the recommended guidelines. Blob is connected via bluetooth to the Blob app, which tracks the user’s progress, provides workouts and presents achievements, providing the right encouragement and facilitating appropriate workouts to ensure the user commits and engages with regular exercise.
