ACIDO Rocket Finalist


A balancing exercise instrument to improve older adults’ balance for preventing fall injuries and placing an emphasis on music, synchronicity, creativity and social interaction. As the instructor and participants are on/off the board, the instructor chooses a song to be played on all of the boards. If the participants fail to mimic the actions performed by the instructor, the song being played sounds muffled and the board vibrates to give the user feedback that they are not staying in sync. This instrument makes fitness classes more enjoyable and adds variety to balancing activities.
