V//SM

V//SM (pronounced vee-sum) is a smart athletic garment that reads and replicates the user’s body movement digitally.

Designed for swimmers, V//SM delivers visual feedback on the user’s performance and provides insights into how to improve form. Efficient swimming demands highly technical movements. Without access to training facilities and coaches, it’s difficult for a swimmer to improve. Taking the form of an app and an accompanying swim top, V//SM presents a 3D motion capture of the swimmer. This 3D avatar provides visual feedback through color, transparencies, and motion trails detailing the accuracy and inaccuracy of the swimmer’s stroke. Although initially developed for swimmers, V//SM’s methods for increasing body awareness has applications for weight training and physical therapy of all kinds.
