Enfucell and its partners have developed a disposable sensor patch for sports equipment, measuring acceleration and angular velocity. Initially meant for golf, this can be modified for many other sports as well.
Wearable devices and sensors need their own power source in a form that does not hinder the usability or performance of the device or action. Traditional power options like coin cell batteries often do not fit the purpose. A fully integrated printed battery enables thin and light construction of a golf sensor patch which does not interfere with the normal stroke. This is the first time that a player can actually get feedback from the club head. The acquired data is transferred via Bluetooth to an application on a mobile device and the data can be analyzed on site on the driving range during a training session.
