GestureLogic Introduces LEO, the Next Generation of Wearable Fitness Technology and Your New Personal Trainer

LEO Provides Users With Advanced Fitness Intelligence to Help Reach Their Goals

OTTAWA, ON--(Marketwired - Jun 30, 2014) - GestureLogic announces the launch of LEO, the next generation of intelligent wearable fitness technology designed to help users optimize workouts and reduce the risk of injury.

LEO's capabilities surpass current fitness wearables by tracking users complex biosignals, such as muscle activity or lactic acid levels, with biomedical monitoring technology. LEO then translates this data into simple and actionable recommendations and notifies users of potential injury, all in real-time via a smartphone application. Regardless of skill level, LEO gives users the knowledge they need to improve workouts and stay healthy while maintaining an active lifestyle.

"Popular fitness wearables estimate performance metrics based on a very limited data set because they are predominately accelerometer-based, meaning they track their own motion instead of measuring human body signals," said Dr. Leonard MacEachern, CEO of GestureLogic. "LEO takes the guesswork out of fitness tracking because it is a biomedical device that actually monitors your body. This data is then put in an easy to understand format with clear instructions on how to interpret and use it -- a huge differentiator from previous generations of fitness wearables, which provided information, but little or no guidance on what to do with that information."

LEO's key capabilities include:

  • Tracking muscle activity, hydration, lactic acid levels, heart rate, and movement
  • Providing education and advice throughout a user's workout with simple and actionable recommendations
  • Identifying signs of future injury and recommending ways to avoid it
  • Improve training with intuitive visualizations with the raw data available
  • Competing with friends, comparing workouts with pro athletes and networking with the local fitness community

LEO gives a comprehensive overview of anatomic activity and adapts to each user's unique physiology. Leveraging each individual's body as a baseline, LEO helps set goals that make sense for individual fitness and ability level and also learns from trends in the wider community. As a social platform that connects users to friends or pro athletes, LEO helps find local routes, trainers, clubs or shops.
