Dedication, disciple, and determination – The wizarding world has its 3 Ds, and these are the human world Ds to keep you healthy and fit in life. Building muscles takes a lot of dedication, and attention to detail must be on point to prevent workout injury. Waist supporting belt (a.k.a. back support belt) is the Holy Grail for heavy weight lifters and even everyday
Industrial designer SangWoon Kim has reimagined the traditional waist support belt as a smart
BIND.CO can be easily attached or detached by pushing the side clip of the front module. The power button controls the start/rest of the exercise by detecting the user’s athletic position. The belt has a position recognition function that notifies about any body movement instability via subtle vibrations to ensure the pressure distribution during the workout is optimized. This feature is an excellent plus since most of the long-term injuries result from imbalanced posture while performing a particular exercise.
To top it all, the wearable’s bolt is much slimmer than traditional back support belts. Would a fitness enthusiast be enticed by this concept design? Yes, as it brings a whole new dimension to an optimized workout regime – especially for intense back, shoulder, and thighs workouts!
