Squid is a sensitized, wearable compression shirt that integrates with a smart-phone and web database to monitor resistance exercises (e.g. weightlifting). Squid’s “tentacles” are strategically placed EMG (electromyography) sensors that monitor the user’s muscle activation levels. Squid also features a heart rate monitor, giving users a complete fitness snapshot.

Real-time biofeedback from the smart-phone application optimizes the effectiveness of workouts and all workouts completed by the user are stored on the web database that allows for the integration of a goal-reward structure, providing motivation and tracking progress over time.

Along with a completed prototype, the team filed a provisional patent as of December 2nd, 2011. Squid has recently created a large buzz within the technology community, with publications in major online publications such as Yahoo! and Engadget, just to name a few. The team is currently working on designing a new, revamped V2 prototype.
