Athos

Smart Wearable Workout Gear

Principal Product Design Engineer

Athos workout apparel uses embedded sensors to read muscle activity using EMG (Electromyography). A connected app offers analysis and insights on how you are working you body in real time. Balance your lifts, train symmetrically, avoid injury.

As Principal Product Design Engineer I led the design and integration of hardware components into garments. Working with garment designers and engineers I led the design and development of the connector assembly, know as the “Mount”, which connects the “Core” to the garments sensors.

Design and engineering challenges involved creating a connector assembly which could be easily operated by the user, whilst making 50 individual electrical connections into the garment, and remaining fully waterproof during use and machine wash.
