— Instant Feedback for the Visually Impaired Athlete —

The Opportunity (Training the Vision-impaired).

Components.


            A wearable that provides the athlete with an instant feedback via vibration and aural senses to improve technique in conjunction with or in the absence of the coach. It defines key points in the stroke — known as gateways, to prompt the athelete toward full stroke. The device informs the athlete of what types of motion will be necessary to achieve a cleaner and repeatable stroke when alone.
