  • Patent number: 11925851
    Abstract: An exercise assisting device includes at least one processor. The processor obtains motion data on a current exercise form of a user performing a certain repetitive exercise motion including a certain motion state. Based on the obtained motion data, the processor determines a point of time at which the motion state occurs in one cycle of the repetitive exercise motion. Based on the obtained motion data and the point of time, the processor obtains the current exercise form in the motion state. The processor obtains a difference between the obtained current exercise form and a target exercise form. The processor causes an actuator to apply a stimulus to a body of the user based on the difference. The actuator is attached to a part of the body of the user constituting the exercise form. The stimulus suggests correction of the exercise form and indicates a direction to move the part.

  • Patent number: 11517787
    Abstract: An exercise device for alternating movement of arms and legs by which users perform alternating active exercises and passive exercises repetitively is revealed. The exercise device includes a base, a hand driving member, and a leg driving member. Both the hand and leg driving member are pivotally connected to the base while the leg driving member is arranged under the hand driving member. One end of the hand driving member and one end of the leg driving member are configured to be pivotally rotated on the base. The hand and leg driving members are pivotally connected by a linkage. By the pivotal connections of the above parts, the hand and leg driving members are linked and moved with each other so as to lift up or press down arms and legs for stretching. The stretching of arms and legs also generates pressure on the abdomen of the user to exercise his or her abdomen.

  • Patent number: 11504583
    Abstract: An exercise machine with a two directional pivoting user support assembly has a user support or platform which supports the user and pivots about a first pivot axis during an exercise movement, and is also pivotable about at least one second pivot axis to involve the user's core muscles in balancing and maintaining the user support in a stable position. A manually operable locking device with a simple flip switch lever is provided for selectively locking the user support against rotation about the second pivot axis, so that the user can easily chose whether to perform the exercise with a stable support or to add a level of difficulty by using the unstable seat mode and exercising core muscles during the exercise.

  • Patent number: 11490857
    Abstract: A biofeedback virtual reality (VR) system and methods are provided for improving, optimizing, or minimizing the physiological or psychological effects of a medical condition, such as a physiological or psychological condition of a patient. The biofeedback VR System monitors one or more physiological parameters while presenting an immersive VR environment. The system and method comprise a closed-loop biofeedback system where a user (i.e., patient) observes a VR Experience provided by the VR System. The VR System monitors one or more physiological parameters while guiding the user to an improved (or optimized) physiological state through improvement of one or more of the physiological parameters. In some embodiments, a social experience is included in the VR, where the user engages with one or more other users in the VR Experience.

  • Patent number: 11413488
    Abstract: An exercise machine support system for providing increased versatility including inclination or declination of an exercise surface, a reduction in the overall length and width of the exercise machine, and an enhanced user interface which reduces the risk of injury. The exercise machine support system generally includes a cantilevered exercise machine which is adapted to have a variable angle of incline or decline with respect to a horizontal ground surface. The exercise machine will generally include a base and a support which extends between the base and the exercise machine. The upper end of the support is connected to the exercise machine by a first pivot such that the exercise machine pivots about the support. An adjustment device may be utilized to pivot the exercise machine and thus adjust its angle of incline. Various types of adjustment devices are disclosed, including an actuator, ratchet-and-pawl, gears, and cam.
