Take-off grant for Strike-f(x): The Intelligent Boxing Bag

Nilas van Woersum (Human Movement Sciences department) received a grant through a Take-off programme from NWO for his project Strike-f(x): The Intelligent Boxing Bag. With this funding, Nilas and his team will upgrade the Strike-f(x), design gamified workouts and outsource the production. Strike-f(x) is a free-hanging, intelligent punching bag that measures the impact force of punch and kick actions in an accurate way at any location.
