In boxing, if you don’t know to punch properly, strength and power won’t do you any good. Before you can become the next Muhammad Ali, you need to master the basics. The power behind each punch comes from practice and repetition. It is important to learn the technique for each punch before you can execute them safely and effectively in the ring.
In this project, we are helping boxers to improve their punching techniques. The SensiML boxing model detects specific boxing punches (gestures) with a wearable device and advise boxers in real-time of proper punching technique by using a low-power sensing wearable incorporated into a typical punching glove as shown. Thus, boxers can compare their punches with the ideal punching technique.
