We propose a unique combination of wearable stretch sensors, personalized environment, and XR visualization of the spine to address critical needs of spinal fitness and exercise. The mobile aspect of immersive biomechanical biofeedback implies a breakthrough design incorporating wearable sensing and motion friendly visualization. Personalized spine modeling will involve innovative non-invasive scanning and mapping individual parameters onto a high end deformable anatomical model.
The XR user interface visualizes spine model and user surroundings to deliver biofeedback. The exercise monitoring method will choose options between an immersive visualization for the eye of the mind, and augmentation of the environment with the necessary awareness of self and surroundings. The visualization viewpoint will vary according to posture and surroundings.
