Sport Science Equipment

Sport science is a discipline that studies how the healthy human body works during exercise, and how sport and physical activity promote health from cellular to whole body perspectives.

The study of sports science traditionally incorporates areas of physiology (exercise physiology), psychology (sport psychology), anatomy, biomechanics, biochemistry and biokinetics. Sports scientists and performance consultants are growing in demand and employment numbers, with the ever-increasing focus within the sporting world on achieving the best results possible. Through the study of science and sport, researchers have developed a greater understanding on how the human body reacts to exercise, training, different environments and many other stimuli.

IONIT - Hand-Eye Coordination Training

IONIT is a sports training device which assists the user in keeping his eye on the ball when he is striking it. The ability to watch the ball all the way through the execution of the shot plays an important part in its outcome.

The Client had the basic idea of how this device could operate and contracted Donix to provide a wireless electronic solution. The solution provided uses infrared, accelerometer and ANT technology with audio and led light indicators. The device comes in two parts and the PC boards of each needed to be of an appropriately small scale in order that they do not impede the player or his sporting apparatus. Being a sporting device the end product needed to be fit for purpose, ergonomic, robust, good-looking and easy to operate. IONIT is presently in the process of raising further capital through crowd funding.
