What is it ?

« Capture and interact with your body in 3D on your mobile, all as easy as taking and sharing photos. Each body is unique, get to know yours – back to front and top to bottom – in 3D with the free Nettelo app »

Understanding the needs

The process

In partnership with Nettelo, we have worked to include their technology that is the 3D scan in a sports activity.

During the first interview we were able to define the expectations and the problems of our partner. Then Leo and I decided to organize a standby session to better know and to apprehend the the field of sports halls.

Our process

Field investigation

Following our watch, we went on the field to have a better look at the users problems. We have observed sportsmen at the gym and we went to ask them some questions.

These interviews allowed us to have the empathy needed to define the problematic of the users, this helped us understand

  • Their motivation
  • The difficulties encountered during sessions
  • Accessibility constraints to the gym/sports hall

Our position towards the problematic

Bodybuilding and fitness are sports that can cause health problems if they are practiced in the correct way.  

  1. Practice sport in all safety and efficiency
  2. Practice sport with simple elements of everyday life (Lafay method).

Analysis

After analyzing the elements we came up with during the field investigation, we had different points to improve:

  • Many mistakes of practitioners gym that can deteriorate their health in the long run
  • Going to a gym after a day’s work is not a simple task
  • Registering to a sports hall/gym is expensive.

Based on Lafay's method

« The Lafay Method is a method of fitness created by french author Olivier Lafay. The method utilizes bodyweight exercises to achieve several fitness goals with results comparable to standard weight-lifting. »

The technique

How does it work?

The user take position in front of his Kinect. The Kinect detects the body moves and displays these same moves on the smartphone so that the user might see what modifications might be done on his training technics. Spoco has also a unique training program for every user based on his objectives. Nettelo offers the possibility to check out your physical evolution in 3D. Spoco has also made a partnership with Deezer so that you can enjoy a special musical experience!
