How does Axon™ work?
Axon™ measures the force applied as the user pushes the sensing end of Axon™ into a sturdy object and reports the measured force both through a built-in display on Axon™ and through the AxonFit™ app. Axon™ also provides intuitive, visual guidance and instant feedback through a set of LEDs as users work out.
Axon™ has a guidance LED that starts out orange and closer to the middle of Axon™ than to the sensing end. When a rep begins, the orange guidance light travels down Axon™ toward the sensing end. The objective is to apply pressure to “chase” the orange guidance light and turn it green by applying a target amount of force. The LEDs between the user and the orange LED light up in sequence to show the user’s progress toward meeting the target force. If the user meets the target force, the guidance light turns from orange to green. When the rep is over, the guidance light travels back toward the user, away from the sensing end of the stick.
